fabric fun

June 9, 2010

If there is any kind of money I can blow through (or burns a hole in my pocket) it’s any extra cash I might have to spend on fabric. I’ve made a couple of custom sewing projects lately and did I hold onto that money? No way!

Here’s a couple of finds that I just got (nothing like opening the mailbox and seeing a package that you know is full of fabric!)

I started out searching for laminated cotton (and ended up buying everything but!) and stumbled upon this shop on ebay of all places. It’s called Emerald City Fabrics and the prices are pretty amazing. If you order more than one fabric, she flat rates the shipping (and that is awesome!) I found some Denise Schmidt County Fair (yellow with flowers) to add to my stash for when we redo our kitchen (couldn’t pass up $6.95 a yard!) and then this cute Alexander Henry doggie fabric (perfect for a dress for the chick).

Then, again while searching on etsy for laminated cotton (haha) I found this little shop called down shadow lane and stumbled upon this Denise Schmidt Katy Jump Rope (the red w/flowers) that is screaming for me to make a dress. I’m thinking I’m going to try the Schoolhouse Tunic by Sew Liberated

That said, there will be no sewing of any kind going on until I tear down the sewing/computer/soon to be school room and paint…after we get through Vacation Bible School!
