Fabric Haul

Today I thought it might be fun to share a recent fabric haul! If I'm not sewing, I'm either sorting through my fabric stash or dreaming of adding new prints to my stash. I absolutely love matching up colors and textures. There is just something about fabric that makes me happy.

Let's jump right in! For starters, I decided to restock this gorgeous blue palette that I've been working with all summer. If you follow me on Instagram, you already know I'm obsessed. I originally picked these up in person at the Portsmouth Fabric Co. in New Hampshire, but this time around I did a quick online order. They remind me of classic seaside New England. Especially with those adorable whales!


Next up I tried out some new fall inspired colors. I don't know about you, but I'm dying for some cool crisp fall weather. It has been a hot and humid summer in our area, and I'm ready for the leaves to change, the air to cool off, and some fun fall activities.  I'm hoping to combine these with cotton muslin to make some new reusable produce bags. I've had this idea in the works for a LONG time, so I'm glad I finally found the perfect prints. Perhaps a few zipper bags too!


Last but not least, I picked up two Rifle Paper Co. prints I've been eyeing for quite some time. This gorgeous butterfly canvas is from the new English Garden line. Think of all the zipper pouches I can make! It isn't pictured here, but I also picked up a yard of the Rosa in Peach fabric from the Les Fleurs line. This one is super hard to find these days, so I tend to grab it when I see it!


This year I've been more intentional about sewing from my current stash rather than buying new fabric. And as a self-confessed fabric hoarder, it's hard for me to do this! I just love browsing fabric shops both in person and online. I always say that sewing and fabric shopping are two separate hobbies in and of themselves. If you sew and love fabric, you definitely know what I mean. When I do make a purchase, I'm trying to be more mindful. Instead of just picking up what looks pretty in the moment, I only buy what I need and will use right away. Sure I still have a few impulsive buys here and there, but for the most part I've drastically cut down what I buy.

And speaking of fabric shopping, the prints I bought for this haul were from FabricBubb.com and Fabric.com. This post is not sponsored, just sharing my honest opinions and purchases
