fabric post - sew, mama, sew!, bloomerie fabrics, and pink castle fabrics

sew, mama, sew! is a blog that i have been reading for awhile. they posted a contest a few weeks ago to choose twelve fabrics from the sew, mama, sew! store that represented spring in a fresh, fun way. the winner would be given a fat quarter pack of their chosen fabrics and also it would be available in their store for other people to buy. it sounded like a really fun contest so i entered and actually became one of the twelve finalists. you can see my fabric picks here. i didn't win the contest, but sew, mama, sew! had a giveaway with the winning fabric picks and i actually won that! here are some pictures of the fabrics i won. thanks, sew, mama, sew!

i think the three above fabrics florette crystal, teja blue, and peacock feathers turquoise are my favorite out of the entire bunch. i love the vintage look to them.

how cute are those ice cream cones? so adorable!

green is my favorite color in the world so i can see me using these fabrics a lot. a lot a lot. 

well.. after that i got the fabric bug and was soon on the hunt for more pretty fabrics to add to my stash. i really don't have much in the first place and all i have to shop from in auburn is a hobby lobby, so i found some good websites that had REALLY cute fabric.

i ordered these fabrics from pink castle fabrics and i am so in love.

floaties and sinkies in coral
jam in leaf
nigella in multi
modern meadow herringbone in grass
architextures crosshatch in tangerine
typerwriters in parchment
sewing guide in cream and apple
botanical in cream
confetti dots in charcoal

next on my list was bloomerie fabrics and i am also in love with everything i chose. it will be hard deciding on when to actually use these for something instead of oogling at them.

type, typerwriter keys
lucy's crab shack, kite ties in cream green
kids, forest life in retro
holiday, spatter dots in aqua
flora, secret window in turquoise
2wenty thr3e, kodachrome in pavement
then i did a little last minute shopping this past week at hobby lobby and came across these cute prints in the seasonal section.

didn't write this brand down. will have to go back to hobby lobby to check brand.
this fabric reminded me so much of the liberty of london line at target. i bought a dress that had a print very similar to this fabric but i don't have it with me so i can't compare it side by side. i am in love with it though! i almost don't want to cut it up for anything.

i was planning on making a cute pillow out of the last two fabrics but it probably wouldn't match any of my current living room decor so i have to think of a new project for it.

that's all for now! i can't wait to get back to auburn to organize everything. i imagine once that is done, i won't be able to do much cause all i'll be doing is staring at my stash. so prettyyyyyy.
