This makes me think of fabric. Which you can use to make things. I was just in the fabric section of Walmart today. I want to make a purse. A backpack purse. Mine broke recently and it's annoying to have a purse on one shoulder. And I met a friend who quilts.
Anyway, fabricate is a word I love, but don't use often at all. It seems pretension compared to saying someone lied. Or made up a story.
He fabricated a lie. Well of course he did. Lies, by definition, are made up.
So what was the last thing you fabricated?
