Fabrics, fabrics..

May 2, 2009

What else can I say? I love fabrics. I think I'm a fabric collector..I have so many fabrics at home that I'm not sure if I'd have the time to use them all...I love interesting and beautiful prints. Whenever I go to a fabric store and I see hundreds of fabric rolls, my eyes immediately catch the ones I love. It's not easy because there are so many fabrics to choose from, but I know what elements I want in a piece of fabric, if it's a printed fabric: An interesting print with a feminine touch, a print that reads "happy, feminine and unique"; I also love floral fabrics! I usually look for natural fibers like silk and cotton, or the eco friendly section, if I'm going to make a dress or blouse. I also like solid fabrics with textures that have a soft hand and feel comfortable on the body. Here are some floral and interesting fabrics swatches that I like; they can be use not only for clothing, some of them are suitable for home decor. I'd love to know which one is your favorite :)
