Breaking the rules of sewing

There have been many rules about not sewing knit fabrics to woven ones. I have destroyed that rule in the name of comfort.

For this child's dress made from recycled material, don't believe the esthetics should interfere with comfort.

Stall preparation

Some ribbons on the left and some patterns drafted on the right. Was intimidated by my giant pile of ribbons, wondering how I was going to sort them into aesthetically appealing colours. So, I used a visual marketing trick on myself:
When colours are in assorted into like colours, the appearance of variety increases.
I arranged them on a hook to the closest likeness to each of the primary colours. They look more approachable already. I just want to grab one and play with it!
