Fabric Haul Part 3, Fabric.com

*Fabric haul*
Part 3
Fabric.com


I am completely addicted to fabric now.

I have joined the club with people that go shopping for clothes as a therapeutic way to get over anger, sadness or frustrations among other reasons.

I am also part of the club with people that say if you see it now you better get it because it may not be there next time!!

While at work one day during a lunch break I decided to browse Fabric.com (there is no such thing as browse BTW) and see what type of sales they had going on.

My package has arrived!!

Charmeuse Satin Mod Dot Blush/Silver

The dress I plan on making with this will be so cute!  An APRN I work with suggested adding a black belt or sash to break up the polka dots.  Just the thought of how I WANT it to turn out makes me happy! LOL 



I have a couple of patterns I can use this for.  It will most likely be a maxi dress, but with my own type of twist.  I was in love with the emerald color the moment I saw it.  It was a bit pricey, but when I felt it, I knew it was good quality.



This will probably be used to make another dress similar to the polka dot material.  My plan for this is to be a little more formal yet flirty instead of fun like the polka dot print.



I was very excited about this 50% Wool - 50% Polyester find.  It normal is about $10/yard but I got 3 1/2 yards for about $3.50/yard. I had to buy this to HOPEFULLY make a coat in the fall/winter. I am hoping my sewing skills are much better by that time.

I am very happy with my first purchase from Fabric.com.  I will definitely do business with them again.  I did call them before I made the purchase to ask a question on how they cut their fabric and the woman I spoke to was very friendly and helpful.


I feel like a crazy person saying this.  Pretty soon I am going to have more fabric than I have ideas or patterns for.

I can't wait for my next fabric haul!!

Until Next Time!!

DIY -- Hello Kitty Scrub Top -- OOTD

DIY - Hello Kitty Scrub Top What I Wore Today
 Fabric from Joann Fabrics I'm not sure if you can buy this particular print online, but I did see it in a few of their retail stores. 
I used Wrights Extra Wide Double Fold Bias Tape accent the pockets and around the top.
 If you haven't read my About Me page yet, I state that I work full-time in the medical field.  I don't have to wear scrubs all the time, but when I want to be comfortable it's my go to option!!  I was tired of seeing the same scrub tops I was wearing that day on other co-workers in the hospital and smiling at each other because we didn't know what else to say.

I felt like I was in People Magazine on the "Who Wore It Better" page.

So I decided to start making my own tops!!  This is the 2nd scrub top that I have ever made.  The first one I made ended up being a complete bust (My Failure) and I never took a pic of it.  I definitely learned for my mistakes (My Triumph) and came out with what I c…

Scrub - A - Dub Sunday!! DIY - Scrub Tops

DIY - Scrub Sunday!!



I buckled down and add four more scrub tops to my work wardrobe.  I did this really for two reasons.
1) I like how easy and fast it is for me at this moment, very calming and non-stressful sewing!
2) I enjoy the compliments I get from my co-worker for having original scrub tops!
If you have not read my Fabric Haul 2 post, please check it out.  There you will find a description of all the fabric I used for these scrub tops.


Fabric Haul 2




My son decided that he wanted to draw all over my pocket template.

It seemed easier for me to just cut all the fabric out and just sew everything at once.

The only thing that was time consuming on these scrubs was changing the thread to match the color of the bias tape being used.



The finished products!! So happy!! Can't wait to wear them.

DIY - Burda Style Pattern 7065

 DIY - Burda Style Pattern B7065 View A

I have to admit.  I was so nervous to start this project.  Everything always looks great on the pattern envelope.  When you finally get the guts to start and sometimes get to the finished product, you look at it like WTH!!  Then it either gets seam ripped apart, scraped, put on a hanger in the back of your closet or balled up on the floor in the back of your closet.



This is 2 yards of fabric purchased fromVogue Fabrics from Chicago, IL. This company was one of the vendors at the Original Sewing and Quilting Expo I attended this past April.  The fabric is part of theGalleria Knit Collection.



NOT THIS TIME!!  This is the first time that I have started, followed through and finished an actual printed pattern bought from a store.  I am very happy with how it came out. 

It was great to only have to use TWO pieces to construct this top.


I used washers from my local hardware store as pattern weights.  They are crochetednow.
