Pet Project Show #33: Adding to the Stash



A sale from Fabricworm was too good to pass up. The joy about buying online is the selection seems limitless, but that also makes it harder to choose. Depending on whether you're buying fabric to use personally or to manufacture goods makes a difference. Just because we like it doesn't mean someone else will. I try to keep to the 'middle of the road' on some fabrics, but others are just indulgences.



The Japanese prints were the sale items, and I found a few I'd been looking for. The top fabric is baking instructions in Swedish, and I love it. I lived in Sweden as an exchange student, and still speak and understand enough Swedish to get along so this is fun!




The giraffes are fabulous! I would love to see a serious bag lined in these.



This Moda print is happy, and reminds me of some of the cute Japanese prints. The stripe is an Alexander Henry print. Wouldn't they look fun used together in a wedge pattern?


Another Alexander Henry just wowed me. The longer I look at the graphics from this textile house, the more taken I am.






I like to take chances on sale fabric, and there were a few that were far outside my comfortet zone. How about that gold shimmery plaid? Once again, I was seeing it done in a wedge. 








Now it's your turn to show off your own Pet Project. What's your current obsession, love, or new toy? Link it up with The Pet Project Show and strut your stuff!

  4. Now that you've bought the fabric, I'm looking forward to seeing what you'll make with them. Lots of wedgies, from the sound of it! Coincidentally, we hosted an exchange student from Stockholm for a year. He spoke fluent English so we never had a communications problem, thank goodness! Love that text fabric.

  5. Alexander Henry has been ahead of the curve for more years than I can count when it comes to design!!

It's always enlightening to hear your thoughts or suggestions. I try to respond in a timely manner, but admit life is very full here! I will return comments online if it's of general interest, but offline if a personal response is more appropriate. Give me a shout with anything urgent at julie@pinkdoxies.com, and I'll try to get right back with you. While I believe in free speech, spamming will not be tolerated, and as in all our interactions, speak kindly.

If you want to be certain of a personal reply, leave your email or email me privately. Many people are not even aware when they have become a no-reply blogger. Yes, I know it's frustrating for us all.
