A lot of measuring, ironing, and cutting today. After designing the crib bumper for my baby, I really started to work on it today.
Since we are really short on money, I didn't buy an expensive fabric, anyway the only one I really liked happened to be cheap. But I hope I'll make something nice out of it.
To buy the fabrics and the threads, I went to Marché Saint Pierre, near le Sacré Coeur. It is a place where you can find all types of fabrics. I like to go there, going out of the metro at Anvers with all the tourists who came from around the world to see one of the most beautiful sights in Paris. Then walking past the fabric stores, the two atmospheres mixing: on one hand the tourists and on the other the local people and those who came to buy fabric: women mostly, rich and poor, all colors and ages, searching among the piles of fabrics to find the right one, and the old gay guys serving the clients with either an incredible look of boredom on their faces, or a casual niceness that only people who have worked for ages at the same place can show.
Back to one of the things I love doing the most: creating.
