R/Co. Project: LC Stacked.
The hardest and most frustrating thing about designing and building your own fabric based goods is the very real lack of good sources and suppliers, particularly yarn dye plaids, on the open retail market. Yeah you can get fun little 40% off coupons in the mail to go to crapy-anns but then you go and it is just, well, crap.
So this past weekend I made the rounds to all of the local retail shops looking for some suitable fabric for the show coming up for Littlecrow. I don't know why I even bother to go sometimes... But after a few days search, and a nice sale, I was able to come away with a few good chunks of alright fabric. Now if only I could afford to do the minimums with a good fabric sourcing agent then we could be in business. Oh well, maybe one day. For now it is dig, dig, dig, for the scraps and make do.
Oh yeah, Happy Go Skateboarding Day!
Go out and have a push yourself.
& remember it's up to you to Make it Fun!
