post). I am working through my fears though and trying not to look at the whole picture, but instead just take it one piece at a time. That is all that one can do when they have any sort of fear right?!?
Enough about my fears....let's talk about fabrics for a bit. When I decided to make my son a back to school wardrobe, I was worried about the cost honestly (and I do think that is where a lot of my worries come from) and how I would be able to put everything together in a cost effective way. I went window shopping at various online fabric shops to find a good palette of fabrics and create a color scheme that would work well for my son (you can see that palette/swatches here). However, in order to save some money, I also went shopping in my husbands closet. MUAHAHAHA!!!! Actually, he recently went through his clothes and got rid of a ton of items that he doesn't wear anymore or that don't fit...so I went shopping through those clothes to upcycle and I am so excited that so many of them fit into the mix.
LOVE the Harvey V Neck from OUSM Designs! And check out those fabrics....LOVE them all!

A few fabric shops that I have made purchases at are Phat Quarters ran by my sewing buddy Gemia as well as Purple Seamstress Fabrics, and Peek A Boo Patterns. Being a SAHM myself, I always love to support other SAHM's and their businesses first before I visit the larger retailers. I have always been treated so well, and the customer service is always just OVER THE TOP! It gives me warm fuzzies inside :) AAAAAND, if you like to save money (who doesn't) Phat Quarters just happens to be having a SALE on all of their KNIT fabrics all month long to make room for fall collections coming soon. No coupon is necessary.
Even though I am still nervous about this whole project, I AM very excited to see how it all comes together. The Back to School Capsule Tour has already begun, so you can catch up on that over at Rebel and Malice and enter all of the fun giveaways. Thank you so much for stopping by and holding my hand through this process!
