I wish I could sew, but I can't. My mom tried to teach me but I seem to have retained only the ability to sew a straight line which would be super helpful if my family and I were two dimensional people.

It should have, because then I might have been prepared for what I saw. The first shop we entered had about every Vera Bradley fabric available. I pondered buying some to have a skirt made for Megan, but remembered that she has three skirts and that might be capacity for our little girl who hates dressing up. Instead I bought a remnant of some material that said, "Hello, Gina, I scream your name."
|"Hello Gina! Buy me!"|
From there we (we being six of us altogether) branched out looking for various things. One friend bought curtain material, another bought enough to make her daughter a jacket and a couple pairs of pants. I saw pink and green camouflage material and decided I could probably find someone to make them into pants for Megan. Total spending so far: about $6 USD.

On our way out we stopped to look at a store full of microfiber fabrics. Across from it was another stall with tons of fleece including a pink cheetah print. I picked up 1.5 meters of that ($3.50 USD) to hopefully make Megan a bathrobe.
I'd like to go back, as we barely scratched the surface of what they had. Megan's in love with the cheetah print, I got lots of fun pictures, and good time with friends, so I'd say today was a win.
That looks like an incredibly fun place to go. I wish we lived closer! Megan might even find material she likes so much she would want a dress
(or maybe just a skirt) made for her. I would love to sew her something if she would wear it and I could get it to her before she outgrew it. I am sure there are many people there that are able to make her what she would like. That is the blessing!
