New fabric

My fabric shopping last week still has me excited. I'm happy to live near fantastic fabric stores in Los Angeles and smaller fabric stores in Orange County. I never went fabric shopping when I lived in NYC so I've got nothing to really compare it to but it sure is fun.

I posted this photo on instagram of the freshly washed entangled mess and it nearly had the most likes I've ever had. So I know you're just as excited as I am.

Don't ask who made any of it because discounters can't leave the selvage on. I guess. They always seem to be cut off. I did the math on this bunch. This ended up being around $2.50/yard. Not too shabby. I'm hoping to use most of it in the coming weeks as I'm getting a few new patterns ready. After the leggings and gift bags coming out back to back I'm feeling the pressure for weekly pattern releases. I'm not sure that will be happening but I do have 5 patterns partially complete right now. Any guesses about what's next?

And a parting thought:

    I am loving this stash haul and I LOVE that we have the internet sewing community to share our excitement. Most of my friends here don’t get it at all. :)

    That’s a lot of knit! My fabric stash definitely is out of control. I have piles in my laundry room, under the ironing board, and a couple in the bedroom!

    Oh I am sooooo jealous:):) I wish I lived close to great fabric stores!!! But then again, I have a hard time saying no to online fabric deals, I would really over spend if I lived by an actual fabric store:):) I am excited for your new patterns to be released, love your signature dress pattern!!!!

    That looks like a pile of fun waiting to happen. =) I’m excited to see what your new patterns will be… but don’t feel pressured to make it happen too quickly!
