I live my life in obsessive spurts. I have since I was little…my mom can vouch. In 5th grade, I ate 4 bean burritos every day for lunch for 3 months straight. Then, one day I just got sick of them and couldn’t even look at another bean burrito and moved on to something else. In my adult life, nothing has changed. I cook that way. I blog that way. I buy things that way (don’t ask me about my lamp obsession and how many I have).
Well, these past few weeks, I’ve been stuck on buying fabric. Lots and lots o’ fabric. I can’t believe the mailman keeps bringing me more! Hubs will be glad when it’s over…
I searched high and low for these Pezzy Prints. All the main on-line fabric stores have just a color here and there, but a few Etsy sellers still had all the colors, and in easy-to-buy packs. I bought these in 1/2 yard cuts. Not sure what I’m gonna make with them…keep them together? Use them separately here and there? Right now, I’m just happy seeing them in my sewing room.
Aren’t they dreamy? My life is complete.
I got my hands on 2 fat quarter bundles of the new Amy Butler fabric line, Cameo, in both color ways. Obviously, this is going to be quilt someday….gotta find the perfect pattern!
These are 1/2 yard cuts of Kumari Garden. So soft and feminine! No plans yet for these either, but I’m just now noticing some of those pezzy prints coordinate quite well with this line.
These fun prints are for a new backpack for little punk. I bought it in the cheap home dec section of Joann’s but it has a total Harajuku feel to it don’t you think?
These are one yard cuts of the new line by Michelle Engel Bencsko, called Simpatcio. The color is a little more pastel than I thought it was going to be, but I still love the print and can see one of them them becoming a great little dress
I couldn’t pass up this fabulous print from Patty Young. The line is called Heaven and Helsinki. I’m a sucker for city-scape prints and the chevron bright lights were a no brainer as a coordinating print. No plans for this yet either.
Another Joann’s purchase. I’ve been eyeing these Denise Schmidt prints for a while, but they are so darned expensive. I’m sorry, but I have a hard time paying 12.99 a yard at Joann’s. So, I waited for them to go 40% off this past week, and then used my 20% off total purchase coupon. These 9- 1/2 yard cuts only set me back about $28. Will be planning a quilt soon for these…Christmas is coming up quick!
Super soft, teeny-tiny cord that is destined to be a fall coat for the side kick, again from Joann’s.
Then I had to buy one more yard Of Scandi Chirp after I made THIS and realized how much I loved it. I couldn’t find it in any big on-line stores, so again found this on Etsy. :) I may hoard it.
That’s it! Well, not really, but I figured that’s all you could stand. ;) Now, if I could just kick in to a sewing spurt, everything will work out grand!
Have you made any fabric purchases lately? What is your favorite print right now? Tell me what I missed :)
