Factory45 Week 4: Don't Believe Me Just Swatch!

Last update I covered how much "I Need Supplies!!!", it's really been an amazing and intricate journey laying the ground work for Ife Medow. In the last update I told you all about how I was reaching out to suppliers. It was scary at first but with all the tools I'd learned from Factory45, I felt ready to take up the task.  After organizing my list of potential fabric/materials that I wanted to use, I set out to email everyone and then I ordered swatch, upon swatch, upon swatch LOL. In fact, at this point my apartment probably looks like a fabric store. I can't really explain the satisfaction that I felt when I received my first fabric swatches, I really wanted to cry because my dream began to feel like more of a reality.

Ife Medow Fabric Swatch

I've spent so much time sketching bags, wallets, etc and finally being able to FEEL the fabric really brought it all home. I feel incredibly blessed and excited about  how everything is coming together. So far I can say that I'm really into Burlap, Corks, and checking out some Hemp. We'll see how things continue to develop. Be sure to keep up with our Ife Medow journey and tell a friend to tell a friend!
