New Fabric!

There is nothing like the feel of products getting ready for shipment! Its a great feeling of accomplishment to see these items bundled up and ready to be mailed. This weekend for the first time in a long time I was completely caught up! What I mean by completely is orders more than 4 days old were packaged and ready to ship!

For me, I'm happy to see these gems on their way to their new home. Sometimes it sad if its a fabric line that I really love and its the end of it, like those brown green and blue dots. I love that fabric!!! It really gives me a feeling of accomplishment and a burst of energy to put my thinking hat on and start coming up with other fabric combinations and new ideas!

It also gives me an excuse to go shopping!!!
I love to shop for fabric. It IS the main reason why I sew. Yes true, I love the things that I make, but I love LOVE the fabric. I love touching it, smelling it. It is truly a love affair.
I will shop anywhere for fabric. Hobby Lobby, Michaels, JoAnnes

I have picked up fabric at local quilt shopsGarage sales and swap meets.
I have even gone so far as to buy an XXXL shirt in a fabric that I adored because I couldn't find the actual fabric.
So stay tuned, as this fabric will be turned shortly into Designs by Jessie products.

Do you have something that you compulsively shop for? Something that you can linger over in the store for hours over?



  1. Oh, I love the bright and vibrant colors.

    And, I actually don't have a compulsive shopping item. In fact, I don't even remember the last time I got to go shopping:(

  2. omg! i LOVE these fabrics, especially the pink and green damask ones! i am totally a fabricaholic as well... i could spend HOURS in a fabric store hehe!

  3. Hi Jessie! I agree -- I love fabric too. I also have bought clothes in a cool print and cut them up for the fabric. Have you tried Hawthorne Threads. They have a great selection.

    I wanted to come over and say hi -- thanks for following my blog. I am excited to get to know you!


  4. Hi Jessie! I found your blog from the 'Today's Creative Blog' community on Blog Frog~ very cute!

    I shop for fabrics too much too, but I mostly spend my hours browsing the shops on etsy, as it's crazy hard to take both my little ones with me to actual stores (and potentially torture on everyone there!)

  5. Found your blog over at Really, Are you Serious! I really wish I was more creative!! I love your fabrics and I love your camera strap covers!!
    Now following!!!

  6. Jessie, you would so love the fabrics here in Sweden (I am an American ex-pat living in Sweden). THey are right up your alley!
