Friday Fabric Finds: April 22

Like last week's Friday Fabric Finds, one of the following pieces made it into next week's weekly creation.  


I purchased 6 yards of this fabric at the Alameda Vintage Fashion Fair for $30. Even though that's way more than I usually spend, I felt that the print justified the cost.

I love the texture on this fabric! Even though I wasn't really excited about it when I first saw it, it turned out to be my favorite of the lot.

While I'm not a huge fan of Asian prints, I thought this one was pretty enough to keep in my stash. Who knows if we'll have an Asian-based challenge one week?

A corduroy print that could possibly make a nice shirtdress one day.
