A few years ago, I didn’t have much of a fabric stash. It seemed when I was in Brooklyn, I was switching apartments every few months even though it was a few years in between. But still, it always felt like I had SO much stuff to move. Which was true since I had a small darkroom, wood shop, sewing room along with all my other stuff to move so during one move, I gave all my fabric away. That lasted for a few years until I moved here. And now it’s a lost cause. I need more shelves. So I decided to fix the problem by buying some holiday + Christmas prints since I has so little of them and saw so many I loved this year. Here goes…
Max & Nobie for Moda, Candyland Christmas, Ringing Wreaths in Ivory (left) purchased here. Arrin Turnmire for Moda, Wintry Text Blocks (right) purchased here. This one is flannel that if I read correctly would have noticed and not purchased since I wish it was cotton, oh well.
All of the above prints were bought from eQuilter.com. I usually find their site so extensive I have a hard time navigating it unless I know just what I want. But I’ve had success by doing searches like “vintage” “text” “word” to find specific types of things I might be into. And you’ll have to go with the large number of photos but I always find its super helpful to see photos of fabrics on blogs to see the sense of scale next to other prints. So I chock it up to trying to be helpful.
Japanese holiday prints from Fabric Tales which carries what I assume to be all the colorways in these prints. They are all marked with Cosmo Textiles. Christmas at Night, green (left) purchased here, red /brown (middle) purchased here and Christmas Tapestries, brown (right) purchased here.
These I bought from my local Hancock Fabrics store. The one on the left is marked “David Textiles” and the one on the right isn’t marked on the piece I have. Other holiday prints I picked up were a couple of the Lecien Minny Muu prints which are great and this Shinzi Katoh print is super cute but decided that’s enough for one season. I’m on full throttle for the Christmas making gifts which is why I got the Christmas print bug in October. Sorry for the holiday jolt but if gifts are to be made, I need to keep on it.17b8
