Which comes first? Fabric or Pattern?
I’m sitting here, wasting time at work, trying to decide what to sew next. I can’t decide because I don’t have any patterns or fabric in front of me to inspire me. So, this question came to me. What inspires you more – the fabric or the pattern? Do you get fabric after you’ve decided on a pattern or do you get a pattern to use with the fabric you already have? Usually, I take the more practical approach and select a pattern, then purchase fabric for that pattern. I don’t keep a big stash, so I really have no other choice. I’m curious about what other sewers do.
