What does that mean for you? Well, first, you get to see all these fabulous, inspirational photos of scrumptious knit fabric, straight from Girl Charlee!
This is their Anchors Away line. I’ve been completely into the nautical look this season, so these fabrics fit right in!
I am in love with this recent purchase! The color is so vibrant and right on cue for the green trend this summer. I can’t wait to cut into it! See it HERE
Of course, stripes are so popular right now, I had to get some. I love this graffiti look stripe and will be great for a summer dress for the little punk. See it HERE
Second, you get a 10% off discount code to use once you load up your cart with their already FANTASTICLY PRICED FABRIC. Seriously, when I made my first purchase from them, I was a bit apprehensive because of how cheap the price was. I thought for sure I would be shipped some thin, faded, overstretched fabric that I wouldn’t even be able to sew with. Boy, was I wrong! The fabric is super soft and easy to work with. The color saturation is top notch too! I seriously cannot tell a difference from the knit I’ve paid $15.00/yard from the knits I get from Girl Charlee.
My most recent garment made from knit from Girl Charlee was this dress. I’ve washed it several times and the fabric still looks the same as when I first sewed it up. I blogged it HERE
I also made this adorable Carousel Top (pattern from GoTo Patterns) with Girl Charlee knit, but never blogged about it (maybe soon?) By the way, if you are in need of patterns to use with knit fabrics, Girl Charlee now sells patterns! See the entire selection HERE. GoTo Patterns has a fabulous selection too! You can see them HERE.
I also made this dress from a great waffle weave fabric from Girl Charlee. You can get this fabric HERE for $4.40/yard (but with your discount it will be $3.96/yard!) WOW!
A few tips I’ve learned about the Girl Charlee site:
1. If you just need a half yard of fabric for a skirt or other small garment, check out their Half Yard Cuts for crazy deals!
2. Use their Swatch Wall. This is a great place to put all the fabrics together you are interested in and make sure they jive the way you want them to. From the swatch wall, you can easily add them to your cart
3. Create an account. Why? If you are logged in to your account and put fabric in your cart, they save it. I didn’t realize this at first and my cart would empty after a day because I wasn’t logged in,and I would be sad! I would have to go back in and fill up my cart again and then I would have to go wipe someone’s butt, or actually fix dinner and it would be gone… again. But, once I created an account and made sure I was logged in when I was loading my cart, it stays in there forever! Unless of course, if something gets sold out as you are twiddling your thumbs, then of course you are out of luck. So, don’t be like me and lose out on fabric! Especially with that 10% off!!!!
OK, so the 10% off code is: PUNKSTEN
The code is good until July 15!
