Fabric obsession- Prints !

I have a confession. I am obsessed with bright and cheerful fabrics. It may seem excessive, but almost everything in my sewing closet has some kind of pattern.
I can’t seem to help it. It started when I realise I was buying too much grey for work and I needed my off duty clothes to bring my Brazilian personality back.
Colours, Patterns are so fun, surprisingly flattering, and super fashionable. Walk into any clothing or fabric store and you’ll see print domination.
Below are a few fabrics that I love ( all 100% medium weight cotton) and some are actually new members to my fabric stash.

Brazilian chita – light weight cotton
What fabric calls out to you?  Do you have a particular colour, print, texture, type of fabric that you keep buying? You go to buy something new and end up buying your know and love favourite? I am sure we all have a certain fabric that we’re obsessed with. What’s yours?
  • All these fabrics call out to me! I am attracted to bold prints, geometric shapes and anything soft. Where did you find them. They are all gorgeous.

  • I am in love with your fabrics! Prints and colors draw me in every time. I have neutral cardigans and shoes so the dress/shirt/skirt print can take center stage. It is dark and gloomy here, but this post completely brightened my day! I think the Owl print is my favorite 🙂

  • Hi Melizza, the chita ( got some of it in Brazil) The others you can ge in quilting fabrics. You can try here: http://backstitch.co.uk/

  • Meg. I know here in the UK is grey and raining… Viva colour !!!

  • Oh, I love prints too! It seems like I sew more stuff in solids than prints, perhaps I need to change that soon. By the way, I just discovered your blog recently and have enjoyed reading your posts. :]
