Fabric Haul, and January project countdown

Hi everyone!

Today I am sharing my most recent fabric haul from Denver Fabrics!!  For some reason, I seem to gravitate toward this site for most of my fabric purchases. Mostly because I have not been disappointed with the fabric cuts I've received, and the pricing is reasonable. In fact, I usually shop during their sale times, and they quite frequently have sales going on!

As far as a downside goes, the only one I can think of is shipping time. Now granted, you do get a tracking number once your order ships, but I would never order here while in a hurry--unless you pay for faster shipping.  I usually don't see my orders for up to 7-10 business days later (yikes). But, since I never order fabrics I need immediately, that doesn't bother me.

Now, on to the fabric!!!!!

The main goal with this shopping spree was to pick up a few things for me, and a few things for my lovely daughter:


This first fabric is a pink/black zebra jersey knit for my little lady. I definitely look at it and think of a pillowcase, but this will probably be great for a cute skirt or dress!



Here is another pretty one for my daughter. It is a hibiscus red rayon jersey knit that drapes beautifully, and feels so soft!  This will probably be another dress.


This next one is my favorite!! It is a hot pint leopard print jersey! Talk about stylish, fun, and oh-so-girly! I want to use this one for myself, lol!

I'm thinking a leopard jumpsuit would be nice for my daughter:




The last two fabrics are for me!!! The first is a black jersey knit. The next one one is a white/black jersey print:


I plan on marrying these two fabrics together, and working on mother-daughter dresses this year. It will be fun! The pattern is from last year's Ottobre:


The best part will be figuring out which month I will sew these! I definitely love the "one project a month" flow that I am on now, but I am realizing I only have roughly five days left to finish my January project!!!!! I am still figuring out pattern adjustments, so I will have to manage my time well in order to meet the deadline.

I hope you are all staying warm and well!

Stay sew-filled!

Very nice fabrics! Unfortunately, when I order fabric online, I really am excited to get it so the shipping time makes a difference to me. However, I will make an exception if the fabric is really good and I don't think I've ever purchased from Denver. thanks for highlighting the fabric store, I may just take a look.
