After a rough week full of stress and disappointments, a recent heartbreak and life being tough in general, I went to my favorite place (the fabric store of course) and bought this bright, red fabric. Red is my favorite color because it stands out; red things are usually catchy and beautiful. This bow tie reminds me of a watermelon which just happens to be one of my favorite fruits. Purchasing and working with this fabric served as a remedy for me. When I see this fabric, I think of all the things I could make out of it, along with all the things I have done and will do in life. Ankara (Nigerian fabric) is very therapeutic for me. The beautiful colors make me happy, and the endless possibilities of creative things that could come out of it amazes me.
