Hi guys! Spring has fully sprung! The birds are out, the bugs are out, and the sun is shining! This is my favourite time of year! 🙂
Now that I am finished with all of my super secret doll exchange projects, I am excited to start creating a Spring doll clothes line for the dolls. I have been collecting fabrics for this.
Back in March, we attended the annual fabric sale at the local church. I look forward to this sale every year. You can’t go wrong for $1/meter for fabric! I was like a kid in a candy store! Here are some photos!
They organize all the fabric by colour and type. I was seriously like a madwoman in there.
Anyway, here’s what I ended up bringing home.
Happiness is having a couch full of fabrics. LOL! 😛 ❤
The doll patterns, and trim bags were 10 cents each. Now you see why I look forward to this sale every year. 🙂
To satiate my need for buying fabric in the meantime, I usually go to the thrift stores. Sometimes my local fabric store will have a sale too. Otherwise, it is more expensive to buy fabric to make something, than to just buy an item of clothing brand new.
Since I was specifically looking for spring fabrics though, I decided to go, and take a look. I am kind of obsessed with boutique fabric lately too, but that is impossible to find where I live. This is literally all that both of the fabric stores in my town had for nice Spring fabrics. Luckily, most of it was on sale.Pretty! 🙂 ❤
Next, I went out thrifting. I can usually find some nice articles of clothing to upcycle into doll dresses. Here are a few swatches of my finds. 🙂
Well, now that I have all the fabrics, (probably more fabrics than I will ever need to be honest. LOL!) I can begin my Spring doll sewing! 🙂 Yay!
Happy Spring everybody!!
