If you read my blog from yesterday, I told you I would share my fabric selections from my trip to Norwalk Fabric Outlet. This is what I came home with.
JUST FOR FUN
I couldn't pass up these dots!. This is a heavier weight home dec fabric that is 54" wide. I love that the first two sets are exact opposites of each other (pink with brown, brown with pink, blue with brown and brown with blue). I have already used the red and white polka dots to make a bag I hope to show you before the end of the week. This fabric has so much body. The only color I left on the shelf was white with black dots!
BOLD FABRIC CHOICES
There were two fabrics that caught my eye because of the "shades of BOLD". The one on the left is an orange heavier weight suede and the one on the right is multicolored upholstery fabric. Both of these fabrics are also 54" wide. I am currently sewing a bag with the orange suede that I will show you soon.
OTHER UPHOLSTERY FABRICS
I was selecting fabrics from all over the store. It wasn't until I started taking these pictures that I realized that two of my upholstery fabrics went together perfectly. What a happy surprise! It looks like I planned it. I guess I just liked the color palettes together.
The main reason I went was to get some more faux leathers. When I am experimenting with a new faux leather, I hate to pay top dollar for them. These faux leathers cost only $6 a yard, and are 54" wide. If they don't work out well, I'm not out that much. I love that.
The first group of faux leathers are very soft and buttery. I got the only two colors they had in this feel.
The last group of faux leathers I bought are heavier, with more substance. I love the red one especially with the textured feel. The one on the left is more of a caramel color than gold.
So there you have it. 19.25 yds of goodies. All at $6 a yard. 14 different selections for a total of $115.50 plus tax.
