I also want to share with you all the fabric goodies I brought home with me from Nicaragua! I looked for fabric shops in every country I was in and Nicaragua was like Mecca. There were fabric shops everywhere I looked! I picked up bunches of fabric. Let me show you all of it!
|The last fabric I picked up at that shop is this poly/rayon/cotton mystery blend. I'll have to do the burn test on this guy. I think it's a poly/cotton blend, but I'm not certain. The blue is actually a bit deeper than the color my camera picked up. This will probably be a summer dress too. :D I bought two yards at 50C per yard, or $4.25 total. Even though I didn't make it to Costa Rica, I still managed to bring something home from there--this fabric!|
|I saw this dark blue denim at another fabric shop in Masaya. I passed on it the first time because it was 75C per yard and only 75% cotton (at least that's what I heard). I thought about it overnight and decided that I wouldn't be able to find denim anywhere in the states for that cheap and this would be good for practicing making jeans with. I just purchased (for 19.99!) and started watching the Craftsy class Jean-ius. It looks so complicated, but I have such a hard time finding jeans that fit and my favorites are getting worn out. I bought 4 yards of denim from that store for a total of $11.50. The denim ended up only being 70C per yard. They might have given me a discount because I bought so much of this next fabric.|
That's what I did on my vacation. Fun times and fabric shopping! Using today's exchange rate, I spent $56.43 on fabric. Don't even ask me how I managed to get all this fabric back home. That is a whole different story. It involved lots of prayers and shifting things around in and between my backpacks (I bought a small one in Belize to use as a daypack).
Can you believe another month is almost gone? I think I'm on three months of blogging now. Hopefully I won't run out of things to say! That will probably never happen. I talk to everyone like my best friend. If you ever meet me, you will find that out pretty quickly! I'm off to work for a bit now and then thread the needle. I need to get this silk dress finished up. It is looking fantastic! I can't wait to show you guys. Have a great week!
