Fabric Addiction

Wednesday, April 7, 2010

Uh oh. I hope this online-fabric-shopping-thing doesn't get out of control. I just ordered the cutest fabric ever.

My rationale is that the ugly fabric from my local quilt shop costs about $15 / metre, whereas the cute, super-awesome fabric from Etsy in the States costs about $8 / yard. So according to my calculations, it works out to about the same. I'm obviously not a mathematician so if I'm way off, please tell me.

I ordered a half-yard bundle of 8 different fabrics (Summer Song in Orange by My Minds Eye for Riley Blake Designs). I also ordered a yard of another really fun print (Love U - Flowers in Rosy Red by Deb Strain for Moda Fabrics).

I ordered both from The Sproutz Store on Etsy.


  1. oooh - PRETTY! I love the summer song collection! what will you make with these?

  2. Katie - I will be making..... your girl doll! :)

  3. Hey Sarah - love it all.
    Have you heard of this company (below)? Canadian (free shipping in Canada!) and oh-so-cute. I ordered a pattern and was very pleased w/ the customer service and product. I often drool over their fabric...and they often have sales and monthly draws for free stuff!
    Just to put a bug in your ear :)
    Happy sewing!

  4. Hey Ashleigh,

    I've checked out Pink Panda Fabrics a few times (but not lately so must do that later). The free shipping in Canada part is awesome. I haven't ordered anything yet but probably will once I have another look.

    It's so hard to find online fabric shops in Canada. If you find or know of anymore, please send them my way!!
