I was talking about fabric with a couple of friends on Facebook, and they said they wanted pictures, so I thought, “Why not blog it?”So, here’s the deal. I have fabric hoarding problem. I told them I have two boxes of fabric in my guest room closet. After going in there to take pictures of some of the fabrics, I realize it is now three boxes. Some of these are remnants from actual projects. A lot of these are just remnants or clearance fabrics that I saw and said, “Ooo, pretty.” So here, without further ado, are some pictures of the fabrics in my closet, along with a few patterns I bought on sale today:
Two fabrics I want to use to make shirts for my boy, along with my $.99 pattern I bought today at JoAnn’s.
A pretty remnant I bought today.
The two reversible quilted fabrics Mom gave me yesterday when I went snooping in her boxes of unused fabric.
A silky Asian print and a beautiful floral. I keep pondering the possibility of adhering the yellow floral print onto a canvas because I love it that much.
Two celestial fabrics (the one on the left is satin with velvet objects) and a pretty purple flannel with multi-colored spots. I used some of the flannel for a case to put my daughter’s ski goggles in.
Zebra print cotton and kids’ jungle animals.
Complimentary floral prints I found on clearance, so I grabbed a yard of each.
A bunch of clearance cotton florals.
Pink with white polka dots (cotton) and another silk print.
Leftover Nemo fabric from the curtain in the kids’ bathroom and purple with butterflies.
Care Bears on clearance, Halloween clearance, and leftover fabric from a pants outfit I made my daughter (which had a hot pink solid for an accent color).
Top: Leftover butterflies from my daughter’s curtains. Bottom: leftover frog prints and lime green from a dress for my daughter and leftover orange from a dress for my daughter.
Top: Blue with circles; I think I used some of this to make a case for a PSP or Nintendo DS or other small device. Bottom: Pretty pink and green in a thicker weight fabric, pretty fabric with sayings all over it, and a red with multi-colored stars, which I’ve used some of to make a holder for a Leapfrog book and cartridge.
Pooh Bear and butterfly remnants that I fell in love with.
Sea creature fabric a friend bought and never used, so she gave it to me. I have used some to cover shoe boxes to be used as storage boxes. I will blog about that one of these days.
A soft, stretchy fabric covered with lots of colors and hearts. I got it for REALLY cheap at an estate sale (maybe $1.00 for many yards of it). I’ve used some of this to make cases for small electronics such as the Nintendo DS.
