The fabric shop of focus this week, you guest it, it is Fabricworm. I love the definition of Fabric worm….A person devoted to fabric. You know that means most of us fabric addicts :-).

I have recently started buying fabric from Fabricworm, as they have good specials on a regular basis, in fact one for Memorial Day – 30-60 % of selected fabric. I don’t tend to buy bundles or whole lines, more one off fabric 1/2 yards. They do also they have a great range of Japanese Import fabrics. So, here are the new additions to my stash:

Puti de Pome, So Happy, Hippos, 5 Total, these hippo’s are a linen like fabric and I am planning in using them for pencil cases, felt-tip wraps or bags/totes for kids.IMG_7357

Alexander Henry, Once Upon A Time:  Princess Kingdom, and Fair maidens, natural. I paired these two prints with Patty Young, Textured Basics: Shoreline Tangerine, and Shoreline Salmon.IMG_7364

Erin McMorris, Moxie: Buttercup TangerineTalk Talk Tangerine, Buttercup Grass, Talk Talk Sky. I am thinking of using the buttercup fabric for the outer pencil cases and the Talk Talk fabric for the inside lining.IMG_7360

Timeless Treasures, Sketch Basics: Orange, SmokeCitronIMG_7356

Here are some of the miscellaneous fabric 1/2 yards I also purchased:IMG_7369

Playing with hexagons + new fabric

A very good friend of mine, asked if I had any coffee cup sleeves left ,as she wanted to give one as a gift. I was excited about another order but I only had a couple of plain tops made (a black, red and blue one)  but none complete.  None of these tops were very inspiring.

Then, the other day I got an order from Fresh Modern Fabric who included a couple of mini charm pieces of Tsuru fabric line. I love this fabric, and I decided to make a coffee cup sleeve using these charm pieces + some solid colors (which were from my prize from “The girl who quilts“, thank you…thank you). Then, suddenly, I had another idea……lets try some hexagons. I used grey felt for the back in, grey cotton for the quilting, and of course, my usual hair-tie and button.

Here is the end result, I will definitely make a few more of these.

As I fell in love with this Tsuru fabric, I was ecstatic when I read a blog last week about the price cuts at Contemporary Cloth (I am so sorry I forgot who it was I read it from…..but whoever it was thank you 🙂 )…..guess what they had on special – yes you guessed it the Tsuru 8 fat quarter bundle. Today my bundles arrived:

Tsuru Fat Quarter Bundle + 1 yard piece ( Cloud 9):
