I guess you all know that
I love fabric.
Well, most of us do, right?
But a few weeks ago this fabric love peaked into something ... NEW to me. :-)
While browsing through the word wide web I stumbled on a sale on
I went to check it out - even though I did not intend to order anything.
I mean it would be kinda crazy to order fabric from the US when you live in Germany.
After all ... I would have to pay high postage and costums ...
And I spend too much money on fabric already especially since I have so much fabric that I have not used yet.
But when I saw the fabric - and the prices - I could not resist!
I started calculating like a maniac and arguing with hubby and myself.
Actually hubby said I should just order! So I was kinda arguing with myself most of the time ... :-)
It took me a whole evening to actually decide to just do it!
Oh, and I can only highly recommend All above fabric if you want to buy fabric online.
AWESOME costumer service!!!
As I was really unsure what I was getting myself into I contacted Melanie via facebook and asked about the postage ... and how much I could buy for it. She got right back at me with really helpful answers.
Wanna know what I got?
I ordered this beautiful printed dark brown botton knit that you can see on top of the bundle.
Yet, have no idea so far what to do with it.
Maybe some cute dress type of thing or top for my daughter ...
And you can already see what else I ordered:
It is some of the PURE fabric by Sweetwater.
You have to check out their blog by the way ... It is called
To be completely honest I never really understood how people could be so much into fabric from certain designers.
When someone on a blog asked for your favourite designer I simply drew a blank.
I did not have one!
I know if I like fabric when I see it. And I guess I have a certain "type" of fabric that I like ...
But a designer? Nope.
Until I saw the fabric line called
It was love at first sight!
I am not kidding!
I had no idea a person could love fabric that much!
So when I saw that fabric at All above fabric - and when I saw that it was ON SALE!
I kinda felt like the stars aligned to TELL me that I HAVE to order it!
I HAD NO CHOICE! :-)
It was meant to be!
When the package arrived a bit later - I was so so so so happy.
Even though I ended up having to pay customs fees I still had saved about 50% compared to if I would have bought the same fabric here in Germany.
(Which I would have never done. WAY too expensive!)
AND I just love it! It is so pretty!!!!!
I hope you are not getting sick of the pictures by now. I know they all look the same ... I could look at them for hours! :-)
But now the question is - what to do with it???
I can not seem to be able to come up with a sewing project that would seem worth the fabric.
Does that sound odd?
I do have a project in mind which is not sewing related at all.
Which would only use a some small bits of each fabric.
And when finished I could enjoy this ... project ... :-) all the time ...
Still, I would have to CUT it up. *ouch*
How can I do that????
I think I seriously need help ...
