Sunday Snapshot: We Found the Market!

A bit over a week ago, Shelby, Martha and of course Deng Jie and I headed out on a little adventure.

We were off in search of the fabric market. Since Chinese New Year, the market had somehow disappeared, and no one had been able to tell us where to find it. That was posing a problem for our depleted apron store in the US. We needed new product! We needed new styles! But for all of this... we need fabric.

With a leftover receipt from a past trip to the market, Deng was able to track down one of our favorite fabric sellers, and he gave us some tips on where to find the market's new location. Thursday morning, bright and early, we headed out in the city and were blessed with success. Hooray!

You guys have been telling us that we need to put together some aprons for the men in your families... well, we listened. How about this fabric for your little boys?

Ya'll love the flirty half apron, right? Well... how do you think this color combo looks?

Any guesses on what style of apron we're using this fun fabric with? 

Deng Jie just made up the first batch of samples, and they are adorable. Seriously... you guys are going to love these next aprons.

Phew! So glad that we found the market. Now for patience to share the aprons with you as Deng sews like a madwoman...

  1. Fabric? Oh I adore fabric! Clothes shopping I could without my whole life long. But fabric, I LOVE! Your pics make we want to touch them all. I'm a geek.
    Thx for sharing,

  2. Yay! I can't wait to see them ... and especially, especially the little man dragon apron! I'm so glad you found the illusive fabric market. Nothing like here in the U.S. where you always know where to find it ... but it's also pretty predictable. Wow, your treasured finds were worth all the effort!--Valerie
