It's not often I get to help out with orders. But, every once in a while, I sneak my way into the warehouse and join in on prepping fabric, assembling felt and gathering stationery and other goodies for you, our awesome customers.
My favorite is gathering up your selected felts and rolling them together. I love to see the resulting color palettes. Often, they are truly unexpected and transfixing. Sometimes they remind me of a familiar era or theme. Take this roll here, it makes me think of Sky King Tricycles, Radio Flyer Wagons and other classic American toys. These colors make me want to sew up some felt cars and trucks or something. They get my wheels spinning.
I'm often tempted to pin on a note that reads, "Ooo, wow!" or "So delicious!" or "Please send me pictures of your finished project!" It drives me crazy not to know what folks are making with these varying color palettes. Same goes for fabric, really. Hm, what about including a text-field at the end of ordering that lets the merciful 'tell Heather' what they are planning to make. Or I can just resist hanging out in the warehouse, right?
I do try.
