fabric obsession

Let's be honest...picking out fabric is half the fun of sewing.  Decided to take a break from sewing today to talk about my favorite fabric and why I love it so.

First of all, Julia Rothman is an amazing illustrator who designs incredible fabric. Check her work out here.

I'm in love with 2 of her collections: Type and Ride. Ride is debuting in May 2013. I'm so excited I may just pre-order. Hand drawn bicycles in all their glory!

Also, quite a big fan of Michael Miller. Can we say adorable?!

Love Alexander Henry. Picked up some of his mustache fabric a couple of weeks ago. I'm in love with these also.

By blogging about all this amazing fabric, perhaps I'll save my bank from taking such a hit.  [self-control]

What's your favorite go-to fabric and why?

elephant for Caleb

My friend's son was turning one and so I was inspired to make him this elephant. I thought he turned out pretty cute!

I thought it was only appropriate to add a party hat. Viola! This elephant is ready to celebrate!
