Hawaii Fabric

I ended up going to Fabric Mart a couple of days ago. What fun! I've never been to a nice big *garment* fabric store. I've been to lots of large fabric stores but most of them sold quilt fabrics. This place had lots of everything. I ended up buying some very Hawaiin fabrics for kid pillowcases. I also bought some knit prints for kid jammies and a fun purple/gold georgette for me. More later. We are still in Hawaii but fly back to the frigid north tomorrow night. I'm posting via my iPhone so the formatting will be all wonky. I'll fix it when I get back to town but I just wanted to check in with y'all. :)

I love foreign fabric. Its always a treat when my mom sends me fabric from Trinidad. They are always so festive. Enjoy your vacation.

Fabric makes the best travel souvenir. Easy to pack and full of memories no matter how long it takes to sew it up.

Your fabrics look very promising. I hope you had a great time and good luck with switching to the colder climate.

I am on holidays at the moment... I haven't seen too many fabric stores, but will be stopping in Dubai on the way home where there is a fabric market. I fear for my weight limit on my luggage!

Wow! The blue one is lovely. Wish I could find something like that in my local shop. Regards from the south of Sweden.

How fun!! Last year my twins' preschool teacher went to Hawaii to visit her sons. She went to that same Fabric Mart and brought me some fabric! I need to pull it out and make something!
