I never got around to sharing all the wonderful fabrics and amazing stores I came across during that trek. OMG – that was so much fun! And I met so many great staff and shop owners – several whom I’m still in touch with via Facebook.
These photos were all taken a while ago but I think I’ve had to muster up the nerve to show ALL of this at one time.
Yup! It’s official.
I bought a lot of fabric. But these are great souvenirs/memories of the trip. Right?
So here they are in no particular order.
The middle fabric almost feels like a voile. So soft and flowy.
I had to get some regional fabrics while I was there. Hoping to make a skirt out of the fabric on the far right. Nobu-15 by Kona Bay. Hawaii Print. Pua Aloha by Westminster. Pineapple Lei by Westminster.
A lovely stack of colour builders! And I couldn’t resist a few puppies, especially when one of them looks very basset-y. Pound Hounds by Sue Marsh.Wrenly by Valori Wells for FreeSpirit! Hoping to make a nice flowly summer top out of this one.
Yup. Acacia. Tula Pink. (Had to!)My Mind’s Eye by Riley Blake. Sew Be It by Henry Glass. My Sunshine by Riley Blake. Daisy Doodle Dandy by Michael Miller. Daisies and Dots by Robert Kaufmann. Grand Bizarre by Michael Miller. I couldn’t resist a little pineapple pattern! I was in Hawaii, after all! Little Folks by Anna Maria Horner. (OMG – this voile is to die for!) Ruby by Dan Bennett. Heaven and Helsinki by Patty Young. Soul Blossoms by Amy Butler. And finally (yes… there is an end to all of this!) Salt Water by Tula Pink.
As I went through all these photos, I found some I had even forgotten about!
Do you buy fabric (or fibre) when you travel? I hope someone can help me justify all this fabric-y goodness.
