Over the past few years since I’ve started sewing, I have tried to pick up some fabric at a local place (almost) every time Nick and I travel. At the end of August we turned one of his regular trips to Atlanta into a road trip and a vacation for me while he was busy starting his fall semester classes. This also gave us the opportunity to make a pit stop in the small town in Alabama in which we met a little over 6 years ago (awww!), but I know that’s not why you’re here. You’re here for me to tell you about some great fabric stores. So that’s what I’ll do.

I talked about my lofty summer sewing goals here, and I’m back today to share everything I’ve made since! In the past, I have tried doing monthly sewing goals, but it never really worked out all that well. However, creating a flexible list that spanned a few months worked out pretty well! With the exception of a few items, I crossed off a good chunk of my list for the summer. This is a pretty lengthy post, but I’m going to try to keep it as short as possible!
