Friday Fabric Finds: June 17
This week I wondered: is possible to have too much fabric? And then I said "no" and headed to Ikea to buy yet another Expedit bookcase for fabric storage. All but one of this week's finds were purchased last weekend at the Alameda Antique Fair.
One of my favorite finds of the week, this fabric was a steal at $6 for 4 yards. I absolutely love this print! I see it as a 1950s shirtdress.
I have so many big blue and green floral prints that I have yet to make into dresses. This one just adds to the stash.
Though it's difficult to tell, this is a double border print. It will probably turn into a skirt since there isn't much yardage.
Although I'm not a big fan of sewing-themed novelty fabric, I thought these spools and thread illustrations were too cute to pass up.
Another favorite find from this week, this bandana print is far more saturated than this photo indicates. I have a feeling this fabric will be in my untouchable stash for a while.
Yet another impressionistic 1950s print, this one with grapes. A lot of yardage for $7 made this a good deal though I'm not sure how I'll use it yet.
This last one was an Etsy find. I paid $14 for 4 yards of this one, more than I usually pay for fabric in the offline world. This is the sort of print that I don't LOVE when I see it as fabric but will probably turn into one of my favorite dresses.
