Crafting in Wonderland: Etsy fabric shopping

I made my first purchase from Etsy recently.  I ordered some fabric from Rainbow Fabrics.  She has 1,146 sales with 100% positive feedback.  She also has some awesome fabric!  I got a few Alexander Henry half yards and a Michael Miller fat quarter.  I also purchased her fabric sample of the week, a timeless treasure fat quarter, for only $1.00!  I think I'm most excited about the A.H. half yard of Midnight Snack.  I'm going to make that in to an apron.  :P  Oh and the M.M. Tweet Tweet in black is so cute I couldn't help myself.

At first Allan thought I was a little crazy, but then he acknowledged the fact that I do need fabric.  The fabric stores here on Guam don't carry a lot of fun stuff and if they do they are really expensive.  I figure I can buy these designer fabrics in small quantities on Etsy and get the basics here on Guam.  I can use the pricey fabrics as trimming to the basics. 

My next purchase is going to be some jersey knit.  I'm thinking about getting some hemp cotton jersey knit from InfiniteCosmosHemp.  At $5.25  a yard it is a great deal.  That'd be great for dresses and skirts, oooo so comfy dresses and skirts.

  1. I love Etsy, but sadly the exchange rate from US to AU is so bad at the moment, I cant wait till it settles and I can have fun buying lots of cool fabric too. You must show pics of what you make with it! :)
