Sewing Expo booty and a winner

Remember when I told you about the Sewing Expo? Here is what I bought!


I found some real treasures!


There was a booth that had bins full of fabric, sold by the pound, where throngs of ladies were sifting through pieces they wanted. Someone tossed the pretzel fabric on top of the pile,  and I quickly grabbed it, swooning and exclaiming “FOOD FABRIC!!”.


A very funny German woman was next to me, and she kept passing me all the food-themed fabric. I said “who wouldn’t want a skirt made from food fabric??!!“. She replied “Me“. Heh. I looked at her and said, “You’re telling me that wearing a skirt with pretzels on it wouldn’t make you smile?!”.

She said “Yeah. It would make me smile!“. And she smiled.


Of course it would!

That blue polka dotted fabric on the right reminded me of my Mrs. Beasley doll I had as a child. I couldn’t pass it up!

I wish they had larger pieces of that sprinkle fabric! It is fabutastic!

Today the final results are in from the Top Stitchers contest. Head over for the results!

    1. Thank you Amy! I knew Suzanne would be tough to beat!
      I am so loving that food fabric right now. I wish I had yards of sprinkles:)

  2. The food fabric is so fun. I feel like I saw food leggings/footless tights at Target… falafel could be a veritable eatery of goods! 🙂 So close on the contest, great job! 🙂
