    Default POST the fabric(s) you've found for custom bag co-op!!!

    I thought it might be a good idea for everyone to just post here when they've found fabrics they really like. it will help people like me to choose!!! i want a bag, but i can't imagine finding a fabric!!!

    I am a fabric addict. Some people are into bags, some shoes, some clothes -- for me its fabric.

    I just have to share my favorites:
    http://thefabricfinder.com/Childrens_Bedding.htm

    I adore the Twinkle in green and daffodil.
    I am in love with the new Bloomcraft Twister (giant dots)
    I love the Kaufmann Carousel in Multi -- girlie but not over powering girly
    I love the Kaufamnn Camelot fabrics. They have coordinates not on that site. The pear is so pretty. The repeat is HUGE.

    And love sewing with all the new stuff from Alexander Henry. OMG. I just adore all his new stuff and it was so hot at all the fashion trade shows this year.
    Check out his site of his latest fabrics:

    Some are hard to find, but I like drooling over them all the same.
    I just spent a small fortune getting a retired pastel cowboy/cowgirl retro print from 2002 of his.
    (luckily my husband doesn't know)

    Let's just say the UPS man and I are good friends. The ladies at the post office have actually held boxes of fabric for me instead of delivering it to my house. LOL

    Well, I will have to check w/ Kim b/c I can be a clutz w/ fabrics and I sometimes have very little faith in my monitor! Anyway, these are the fabrics I'm in love with.

    Provided she thinks those will work together, I'm definitely getting a bag w/ those. I have too many other 'maybes' to list, and I am currently sitting here trying to narrow them down!

    So far I like this:

    Not sure what to pair it with though? Not feminine for me...but I'm hoping DH might eventually carry a diaper bag (who am I kidding?).

    I am in the minority I guess; but I love retro styles and colors.
    This the main fabric I like with red accents. (My stroller is red too) so I think it will all go together well.
    And its much different than my Ella bag.

    Oh my gosh, this could really get me into trouble... I love those Alexander Henry fabrics... I'm also into the mod/retro stuff... I don't even need a diaper bag -it's just the fabric that calls out to me!

    In my opinion, the best quality fabrics in cottons or polished cottons are Alexander Henry, Rober Kaufmann, Free Spirit, Michael Miller, and Marcus Brothers. There are a few others but these are my favorites. The quality of the fabrics is excellent. They are woven tight and the prints are excellent, lasting, and over time seem to have the least amount of natural fading.

    Sewing is like the "new" in thing where I live. Home arts are definitely coming back and with that the sewing shops have really boomed where I live. Even if you do not sew, but like boutique items -- like clothing for your children, diaper bags, burp cloths, blankets or even custom bedding, I really recommend going to your local quilt or sewing shop to check out the offerings they have.
