Must Have… fabrics for January 2013

Amy Butler Alchemy fabric

It all starts with fabric.

And it all ends with fabric.

And it’s all fabric in between!

Now, I’ve been to four different fabric stores in the past week and NOWHERE did I see this fabric!

Since I got some fabric store time in this year, I felt it was time to “behave”, so I finally tackled my (285) unread emails, and I am glad I DID!

I came across this post from a great website called True Up (for the fabric obsessed). If you’re not a fan yet, you can subscribe and she’ll send you wonderful emails all about fabric.

Kim wrote about the new Amy Butler Alchemy fabrics and they actually stopped my tiny, cold heart.

As you know I can’t get enough of large-scale prints, so I’m really hoping that in person these prints are LARGE!

Over at Amy’s website you can view the whole she-bang and what a great line it is!

Even though I haven’t seen it on the shelves yet, but i did spy some online at Fabricworm and other places, so I’m going to stomp my tiny cold feet until I get some!!!

I wish I could just do all fabric all day long!!! Cut, sew, touch, buy, design, cuddle!

    Breathtaking! I agree! Thank you so much for sharing. I read in the Wall Street Journal (of all sources) that chintz is coming back but with important updates!
    Love, M

      I think this might be exactly what the WSJ was talking about!
      I’ve bought a dark-green Australian fabric with a shiny chintz-like sheen and a couple of African prints with the waxy coating associated with Chintz recently.
      It’s exciting!
