I absolutely love fabric shopping. The vast varieties and multitudes of fabrics and other components such as yarns, beads, appliqué and such excites and motivates me.
I like to just hang these materials out or lay them where I can look and touch them whenever I walk by.
Sometimes it will take days or weeks, but eventually I'll start to envision and develop all kinds of different styles and ideas in my head and then something will click. Then I start sketching. But, the magic happens when I actually start sewing. It may sound a bit crazy, but quite frequently I'll end up having a different final piece from the original sketch. I'm like that, I enjoy being spontaneous and creative... you know... just playing with different, interesting materials.
That's why it's so fun making one-of-a-kind pieces.
