Great Fabric Find

If you’ve been reading my blog for any amount of time, you know I have more ideas than time, but after I finish my customer projects, I have some ideas for children’s clothing I’d like to give a try.

I was sketching out some ideas a week or so ago and one of the sketches just said “rich purple” to me. I wrote it down, but hadn’t been able to go shopping until today. I was at the fabric store just wandering around looking for something to jump out at me and I found these wonderful knits in jewel tones. There was a turquoise, a plum and a fuchsia. I gravitated toward the deep turquoise so i put it in my cart and kept wandering. I walked up and down the isles and was disappointed that I couldn’t really find anything to coordinate with it. But then, THERE IT WAS!

This wonderful Alexander Henry print – not to match the turquoise, but the plum – just like I had envisioned! SO COOL how it happened. So here’s the combo of fabric I’m going to use to make something very yummy and I CAN NOT wait!….

But I’ll have to. Until then, I’ll just keep the fabrics out to motivate me to finish some other projects! Story of my life!

  1. That is beautiful fabric. I can’t wait to see what you come up with. I have to limit my time in the fabric stores (online and off) because I end up with way more material and project plans than actual time, too1
