Do you get excited over fabric?

Well I do!!  I also get pretty happy about thread too! ;-)  I loved these pieces so much I just had to share.  I always try to include everyone when I make my checkbook covers especially.  I had one for the cat lovers, the dog lovers and the skull lovers.  I also have these pieces for the Music Lovers. 


Jazzy words, instruments and musical notes.  I will turn these pieces into either a few mini-wallets or check covers.  Maybe both.

A Cat Lover’s Delight – for more check covers


This is cut and ready to go!  Just haven’t had the time yet


The Asian Inspired Pieces


I’ve been making a few check covers with similar prints.  I just love them.  And we can’t forget the Geisha Girls that never lasts very long in the shop.  I will re-stock as soon as I get the chance.

I made this a few days ago and will be adding more soon in the fabrics seen below

Fabrics for new hand bags


I know you’ve probably seen this floral fabric (Alexander Henry’s – Mocca Red) like a bazillion times all over the place but I really like it.  I’ll line the bag with that Aqua with brown dots fabric.

Ginger Moon Aqua Floral


I think I like this Floral Print even more than the one above.  It will be lines with that orange swirl fabric.  I only hope it’s not too bright.

This one will have a lot more pockets on the inside which means it will be a bit bigger than the brown one.  Much deeper, a little wider.

So there you have it.  My Giveaway is delayed until I get some work done but I promise it will be a good one.   Off to make flower clips ;-)




  1. WOW, just WOW!! I am drooling over the chocolate polka dots and the Asian theme sounds really hot. These fabrics are so beautiful and I know where some holiday shopping will be done for sure!

  2. Sheliza, the funny thing is the fabric is so simple but I really loved it. It's a good thing I didn't keep it for myself because it sold this morning ;-)

    I can't wait to start on the other bags

  3. Gosh, you're on to bas now? The brown polka dot bag is gorgeous!!!

  4. Thanks. Yes I can never stick with one thing or 3 or 4 for that matter :-)


Thanks for stopping by! I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thank You
