Fabric, structures and substance July 4, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — kitschcraft @ 3:59 pm

1. any cloth made from yarn or fibres by weaving or knitting
2. the structure that holds a system together: the fabric of society

1. the substance of which a thing is made
2. cloth
3. ideas or notes that a finished work may be based on

I love material!!!

And i like the definitions above about fabric/material being a structure that holds things together, or the substance of something. I know that refers to other meanings of the words but i think it those meanings are also so relevant to crafts. When you make something you put your heart and soul into it, and for me, making stuff has become a hobby that holds me together when other things are getting me down.

Anyway, i feel quite fragile today so before i get carried away, i want to tell you that I have found the most amazing seller on ebay. She sells 5 and 10 packs of fabric, they come wrapped up in little packets with 3 different fabrics, all colour coordinated, with matching ribbons and buttons and all for £2-£5. Bargain!!!

    I know what you mean – crafting is my sanity safety net at the moment!
