Every now and again, you just need a good road trip for fabric. For Mother’s Day, we gave my mom some cold hard cash and a promise that I’d take her to Sarah’s Fabrics in Lawrence, KS. I’d only been once and she’d not yet seen the awesomeness that is within that shop.
Cali came along for the ride (I’m noticing a trend here, Cali!) and we were off!
I’ll let the photos do the talking here!
And that’s only a fraction of the store!
The area where I spent most of my time… the shot cotton territory!
Sarah’s is also home to many treasures. Fabrics that are no longer easy to find. Case in point, this bolt of purple Amy Butler. Look carefully! That’s from her Temple Flowers line! I think it would be safe to call it “vintage” Amy Butler.
And, Neptune Stalkers, get a load of this! Eight bolts of Tula Pink’s Neptune fabric. I’ll save you the legwork: Sarah’s Fabrics, (785) 842- 6198. You’re welcome. You can also see some Hushabye in the photo. A few Flutterby and Nest bolts were there, too.
Given the bounty of beautiful stuff on hand, you may be curious about what I actually purchased. Crafty friends of mine will laugh and perhaps roll their eyes. I walked out with eight different solids.
All to make these:
The Playdate Dress
The Ice Cream dress (DONE!!)
and a Mail Sack. (also DONE!!) I had the Anna Maria Horner print already and was just searching for some perfect fabric to go with it.
I think I’m making a return trip later in the month, as a couple of us introduce Lauren to Sarah’s. (Lauren, have you stopped drooling yet?)
Maybe next time I’ll skip the solids. But let’s be honest. It’s not likely.
