This week I whipped up another anthropologie inspired tee. I’m attending a sewing blogger event this weekend with a bunch of other blogging seamstresses from around the country, and since we’ll be walking the LA fabric district all day on Friday, it seemed like the perfect comfy and pretty top to wear.
One of the unexpected perks of blogging for me has been blogging events. I have only attended a few, but I’ve been surprised at how much I’ve loved meeting other bloggers. Surrounding myself with a bunch of like-minded and creative women is so fun, and I always walk away feeling inspired, and this weekend is sure to be no different. Also, a huge thank you to the wonderful sponsors of Fabric Weekend 2013 — two of which are two of my favorite stores to shop fabric!
I visited Michael Levine when I went to the Fabric District for the first time in Fall 2011, and it’s seriously amazing, and is definitely a staple in the LAFabric District. Between their main store, the upholstry fabric store and the Loft where you can buy fabric by the pound (which is the coolest), you will always walk away with bags of fabric you can’t wait to use. Check out their online brand too — lowpricefabric.com!
Before I moved to Huntington Beach, the LA Fabric District was clearly not a fabric shopping option, so my go-to has always been Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft. The selection is obviously not even close to the size of the Fabric District, but they always have good fabrics and great coupons that make their fabric very reasonably priced!
I’ve started compiling a list of fabrics that I want to pick up while I’m in LA this weekend, and can’t wait to show you the projects that come from those fabrics!
