Great–New to Me–Fabrics

I just returned from a trip to New York City, and while there visited a wonderful shop called Purl located in the Soho area.  I’ll blog in more detail about this wonderful shop later, but in the mean time I thought I’d share my two purchases.

First up, more oil cloth (I just love this stuff). 

Glasses 1

I’ve never seen this one before but here’s what on the selvage edge.

They weren’t giving it away so I only bought 1/2 yard.  I think I’ll just make a really simple tote bag and let the fabric speak for itself. 

Next, this wonderful Liberty of London fabric.  It’s 60” wide and although it feels like a really fine quality cotton, it’s actually wool.

This, I think, will find its life with me to be as a “spectacular” lining in a purse.  Last year when I went to Mood in New York City, I picked up, what I think will be the perfect outside fabric.  I blogged about our visit to Mood back in October 2009, on our vacation blog, here

I haven’t been in my sewing room for over a week so tomorrow, watch out, I’m sewing again. 




  1. Great fabric. I'm quilting all day tomorrow. Welcome hone!

  2. Yummy fabric. I've heard a bit about this shop, but I look forward to reading your future post & hearing more about your wonderful trip.


  3. I love the eye glass fabric. Glad you and John had a good time, welcome home

  4. Glad you're home! That echino fabric is my new favorite stuff. You were with me at The Sewing party when I bought my pig fabric for a mere 18 bucks a yard. That's the same line. I just ordered some with cameras all over it in the same color way as your eyeglass fabric. That wool is to die for! I have heard of the Purl shop as they do yarn too. I have always wanted to go there. I hope you took pics :)

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I love knowing that I'm not alone, blogging into thin air.
