Fabric Shopping!

Today I went fabric shopping.  I love fabric shopping.  All those colours and textures.  I just walk through the store and touch everything.  It fills me.  I really do love it.

Fabric stores are all about possibilities and potential.  Beautiful things to touch to see…  beautiful things that are just waiting to become.  Unfinished things just waiting for the right person to come along.  A good fabric store just makes me feel happy (but a badly set-up one fills me with anxiety).  I love my fabric store.

Today I bought some really cool denim (you’ll see it in the photo below).  It’s for a ring sling I’ll be making for my cousin Jamie.  She’s due in a few weeks.  Some slings are hard to shop for because people want such specific things, which aren’t always easy to find – and in some cases just aren’t available locally…  and I don’t buy a fabric I can’t first touch.  Jamie was fun to shop for though.  She wanted a casual fabric, preferably patterned, preferably with blue, green, or brown in it.  And initially she said no orange, but then took that back, and said orange would be okay too.  I couldn’t believe my luck… to find denim with a fun floral pattern in BLUE, GREEN, AND BROWN.  😀

Jamie, hope you love it!  😀

I also bought some new tulle.  Tutus and ring slings are probably my two favourite things to sew – and I now have fabric for both.  LOL  Jamie gets her sling and the wee girlie gets a new tutu.  Joy!

Fabric for Jamie

On another note…  only had one entry for my Scraptastic Saturday challenge.  So she wins the gift certificate for Sugar Pie Scraps store at ESS.  Congrats!

  1. ooooo I love it!! It reminds me of a vintage fabric you’d find on an old chair in an abandoned house on an adventure!

    • …and it’s sooo much prettier in person. Obviously a blackberry doesn’t have great colour capturing ability. LOL I really love it, and I’m glad you do too. I think it’s going to make for a lovely sling. 😀
