Calico Madam

Calico fabricsThere is something about calico I have always loved. I think it goes back to Little House on the Prairie, my most favorite books when I was a little girl. The Ingalls girls were ALWAYS wearing calico, and I know that my 1980’s everyday wear seemed much less romantic than Laura’s bonnets and prairie dresses.

While in Phoenix last weekend with Faith I picked up all these fun prints – some are from a great remnant store and a few are old sheets purchased at a thrift store. I can’t wait to make things from them, and looking at all the colors together just makes me happy : )

  1. Gorgeous stack of fabrics! I haven’t had any luck in the vintage linens department at our local thrift stores. I did find a block in another part of town that had 3 thrift store and 2 antique malls!! However its in a nicer part of town so the prices aren’t so fab.

  2. Yep, sometimes you gotta go to the ghetto to get good deals. This particular fabric store is certainly not in the nice part of town, but its so cheap…Good luck in your search for fabric! I find that if I travel 10-15 min. outside of my town I find much better deals at thrift stores, etc…

  3. Monica Emmertt finds some of her FUN fabrics on ebay. It does seem a little weird to buy fabric off the internet, but it does open up a whole other world to shop in!
