AND I certainly got a lot of inspiration from my recent ERT. (Epic Road Trip). HOLY COW....wait until you see the fabric I bought....!! It is off the hook....
But even if you NEVER travel -- or don't happen to have 500 t-shirts in your basement, waiting to be upcycled -- you can get inspiration WHEREVER you live. For example -- Cracker Barrel...
|My niece Amy has Cracker Barrel Rockers on her porch...|
|Their Halloween inventory is the best I've ever seen. This broom is battery operated and moves AND makes scary music...|
|We all know I'm a BIG FAN of adding a dance skirt to a t-shirt top...|
|The Christmas shirts are already coming in...OF COURSE...|
|Sue liked this snowman shirt. I liked this picture of Sue...|
|Sue does AWESOME seasonal decorations. I've never seen the gourds-in-the-windowbox-trick...a person could get inspired just driving by her house.|
Maybe the BEST, MOST FUN WAY is to attend a consumer sewing show. Take some classes, eat lunch with other sewing enthusiasts, attend a few fashion shows... Let me see -- this weekend -- there is a great one IN KANSAS CITY!! Mary and I will be Ya Ya'ing at the Original Sewing and Quilt Expo
AND -- one of the best ways to get inspiration is to read about other women who love to sew -- and learn what inspires THEM. I have been delighted to be writing for Schmetz needles -- and one day soon -- I'll be announcing their new digital magazine, "Inspired To Sew"...
