Fabric Purchases

I have been a little fabric happy these last couple of weeks. Most of what I have bought though has been a bargain in some way. Fabric Rehab were selling off little discount bundles for £2 each and the materials were mainly scraps ranging from little 5” squares to almost full fat quarters. I ordered a few of these packs and was delighted with them, here is the range of what I got, many nice fabrics in there Alexander Henry and Michael Miller type stuff:



Following on from that Fancy Moon were offering a 10% discount on their new online store so I bought a few half metres from them (see sidebar for their store – type in kandi to get your 10% discount). (The tattoo fabric was from ebay).

The Cath Kidston sale started at the end of last month and I ordered myself a new handbag and some bits (well, I couldn’t help it) and I also ordered some of their lovely cotton duck:

Now I feel guilty as I have too much fabric already and should really use that up first but it’s a bit of an addiction of mine.

I have made another makeup bag from some of the owl fabric from Fabric Rehab, there were only small patches of this fabric so I had to incorporate it into my bag rather than cover the whole thing,

I love these owls.
As I use up my new stash I will be sure to show you what it turns into (If I can bear to cut into it!).

Little bundles like that are so inspiring aren't they? It's not so hard to cut into a little piece compared with cutting into a whole metre of something (or is that just me?)

Your make-up bag is lovely - I think it's nicer with the patch of owls and the dots either side, rather than all owls. The butterflies are beautiful too - what will you make? I'll look out for more of your pretty creations :o) L xox

There's just something about fabric that makes me go "squeeeeeee!" inside. But I'm being good and NOT clicking on that link until I've actually bitten the bullet and made something with the fabric I do have.

I'm a fabric lover myself and I have started liking Michael Miller's fabric too. They are adorable. The Cath Kidston bag you got, is it oilskin? My local fabric store once brought in Lecien oilskin & it was sold out as soon as the shop was opened. I cried like a baby because I wanted some.
