These lay on the cutting table for a day or so before we had a chance to get them priced and put away.
Boy did they cause a stir. Everyone wondered what they were and when I told them, they looked at me kind of funny and said, really...
...what in the world are you planning on doing with millinery netting in a quilt store?
One thing you may not know about me is that I'm crazy about embellishments. You know, those little details that take a project from ordinary to extraordinary.
I've been looking for the kind of netting they use on hats - not tulle, but that wonderful romantic netting with those fuzzy little chenille tufts - for years. I finally found a company out of New York City that carries a huge variety.
I'm sure most of my customers could care less about hat netting, but this is the kind of stuff that makes my heart race.
One of the good things about owning your own shop is you can buy what you want just because you want. Ooo, I want.
Over the top. Crazy. I know.
If any of you have been looking for millinery netting I'll be happy to share.
Am I the only crazy one out there?
