In Part 1 of our Panda Costume adventure, I shared my vision (which, once again, looks scary based on my sketch but is super cute in my head…I promise).
Part 2 is all about planning, prep and selection. We had to figure out where we were going to shop, what we were going to buy, and which fabrics (and buttons!!!) looked the most “panda-like.” In my opinion (especially after beginning the next step…), this is by far the best part of sewing (probably because there’s zero actual sewing involved).
Abigail loved it too…
I’m going to keep this brief because I think the pictures will speak for themselves. Here’s a quick summary:
Selected at Beverly’s in Daly City. They were 50% off. Patterns were all we purchased here because their fur selection was less than amazing.
Hey, this is important! We enjoyed lunch at Chipotle. I recommend their carnitas tacos – yum!
- Fabric, buttons, scissors, pins, etc.
We found everything else at Discount Fabrics in San Francisco (on Irving Street). After having a few bad experiences at other less than desirable fabric locations, we were pleasantly surprised with the selection and more importantly, with the service. They were extremely helpful!
