The long awaited Fabric Porn post!!!!

P1100087

Back in August Sew Fresh Fabrics had a birthday sale which tempted me to buy a few half yards with the intention of making some bags. They came in super quick time so I felt sure the second order I'd placed with them would come the next day. (Yeah - notice how I sneaked in the bit where I went back and placed a second order for a bunch of fat quarters to make the most of the sale.) Only the order didn't. It's taken until today to hit my door mat. I am just relieved hurricane Irene didn't blast it into oblivion. If you've never bought fabric from Sew Fresh Fabrics you may have been living under a rock you maybe missing out on a real treat. They have great prices, speedy service, lots of yummy fabrics and they always refund overs on shipping costs.  On the second order I got quite a few pounds back and I didn't have to ask for it!

So now I've got enough fabric to fill a porn post, I'll show you what goodies I've been buying of late.  This was the first order from Sew Fresh Fabrics.  All half yard cuts destined to become bags - probably 241 totes as presents.

The next fabric to turn up was a free swatch from the Spoonflower free swatch day.  It took me ages to decide which swatch to get. I really liked this fabric with robins on it.

Then as I was going to use up the only fat quarter I had of the echino cheater print in order to make a cushion cover, I decided to go shopping for some more. A whole half yard. A couple of other fat quarters slipped into my shopping basket when I wasn't looking. It came beautifully wrapped like this.

I hadn't shopped at Celtic Fusion Fabrics before. Gwen even slipped in an extra scrap of fabric goodness.

Then I felt really bad that my fabric porn post was going unwritten after I'd promised. In fact so bad, I thought I'd have to go and buy more fabric so I didn't let any of you down that really needed to live vicariously through my fabric purchases ;-) The first of which turned up today along with the second Sew Fresh Fabrics order.

Precuts for smaller projects - I got tempted online! There is one missing because this is going in my Christmas Stocking. Not even allowed to see it yet!

So there you go. Fabric porn for you! Lots of scrummy yummy fabric to play with. Hope you enjoyed!

  12. Holy crap on a stick!! That's quite the haul, young lady! I LOVE that book print - that could be my very fave but we have such similar tastes it's spooky! I'm a bit jealous now but my beloved wee granny snuck me twenty quid today and I like having something nice to show for it coz she's special. So I'm off to Sew Fresh Fabrics for my first purchase. Yay!
