Wishful Wednesday – Part deux May 6, 2010

Can I do this? Can I really be this needy (read greedy) and let you all know that I really, really want this:

MODKID STELLA Sewing Pattern by Patty Young-Modern Handbag

All you ‘fans’ of mine who read this blog will probably realize that it links back to last week’s Wishful Wednesday’s Fabricshoppe who also sells fab patterns (who knew?). I really want to try my hand at this bag, it looks so cute and fun and will let me test out some new skills.  The pattern is actually by one of my favorite fabric designers Patty Young. The flora & fauna fabric just looks luscious on the bags. The one I’d love to make is the black/white version shown in this pic:

Of course this would mean, pattern, new fabric, etc… so hubby if you are reading this. Ahem… just ask Jody what I need.

Wishful Wednesday – FabricShoppe April 28, 2010

Why not include a supply shop? I love this shop and frequent it often. I love fabric, I love the feel of it, the different color ways, the designs. I’ve become a wee bit of a fabric addict/junkie. There are so many different reasons that make each unique and perfect for a certain creation. Many fabrics become part of my beloved stash, waiting for the perfect pattern. Right now I’m at a place where I need to use my stash before I purchase anything new. It almost saddens me because I love receiving new stuff in my mailbox. Often from the Fabricshoppe.

Once upon a time I laughed at my mother and grandmother for their stashes of fabric, and when my mother bought my Nana a mug with the slogan ‘She who dies with the most fabric wins!’

There are some great fabric shops online, but let me tell you what I love about the Fabricshoppe and continue to return: Jody is a fabulous seller with a super big heart, she runs a blog with tips and features ‘Everyday Beautiful’. She also sells a huge variety of fabric for all tastes.  The best part (for myself anyhow) is that she has a great selection of small pieces of fabric – fat quarters and a section of scrap packs called ‘surprise in my mailbox’. Oh, did I forget to mention she has a sale fat quarter each week for only $1? Yup, $1! If you follow her on twitter she often has other great promos and offers for her customers.

Here’s some of my top picks from her shop:

Build Your Fabric Stash-LARGE Surprise Fat Quarter Bundle of 16- SAVE

Andrea Victoria Fabric by Mind's Eye for Riley Blake- Yard Bundle, 5 total

SALE A Surprise In My Mailbox- Scrap pack of designer fabrics (9-15 different fabrics, depending on weight)

Girly Lagoon Fabric by Michael Miller-Fat Quarter Bundle-5 total
