Further Confessions of a Fabric Junkie

As you may have noticed on several occasions my name is Geri and I am a fabric addict. I just have to be in the same part of town as the fabric store and soon after I am finding myself with some yardage home and a blank period in my head...
Two days ago I promised myself I have to sew first all the stuff I have and today I woke up in a dear need of a blue viscose jersey...
So here are the weeks finds:
First - remember the colourful tetris flower fabric I made a T-shirt of? Found same in black and white. But it is not a knit - it is a stretch cotton this time! I think it could be a cute dress...




Still flower themed there is this cute knit which will be a top in a later reincarnation.




Another very soft viscose jersey meant for a T-shirt, but I think I have enough for a dress.




Pretty dotted cotton batiste - maybe similar blouse (maybe with a pussy bow instead of the ruffles) :




And here is the place to mention my personal manbitch (Matthieu). I was buying my blue viscose jersey when I just saw this fabric today. It was a real love - I loved the graphical flowers, loved the black yellow combination and the best thing about the fabric to me is the fact that the black is a lack print. I found that is really cool - like the cool in "coolness".
Then Matthieu came home after work and said to me (I didn't even asked him!) - "Oh what an awful fabric! Looks like a shower curtain!". Well I never!




I still love it though.

Lol, fabric diets are just like food diets. The minute you swear off it, all you can do is think about it. I like the prints too.

OOooooo these prints are very yummy. The shower curtain is fabuloso. What do men know about a good print???!!!

Beautiful fabrics, specially the fabrics with little flowers and the "gucci style" (the last one).
