A bit of fabric...

So everyone is wondering if I bought any fabric? Oh come on now - of course I did! Today I"m sharing my favorite fun fabric purchases. Last year I came across the above bra and panty fabric. I wasn't looking for it - I just "saw" it. So for some reason I had to get some.


Well this year while browsing around I came across this awesome bra fabric! Decided I HAD to have this too. Is it not just awesome!


So now our group is wondering why I"m hooked on undies fabric! I have no idea, I just thought it was fun. Someone found this one above for me - too funny!


I also was on a search for teal/blue/green and brown fabrics. Holly wants me to make a quilt for her friend at school who is getting a new apartment and decorating in these colors. She found a really easy fun pattern a few weeks ago she loved for it. The above fabrics are the ones she likes for it.


And these are the rejects.


Last but not least is a funny FQ I found for a friend here at home. She loves pigs. So I had to get the Bacon and Eggs fabric! They had another one that was sheep before and after sheering. I'll tell you, those naked sheep were soooo funny!

Is this going to be the fabric you look at 5 years from now and say "What was I thinking?" LOL

What fun to see what you actually use it for! The recipient will be laughing.

I have pp patterns for 3 bra's! These fabrics are great for a border/sashing/backing. What's the manufacturer or designer? Do you know? That'll make the search easier!

I used the pink bra/panty fabric as the backing for my queen size Wicked Easy Quilt. I love it. DH doesn't even mind sleeping under it.

The teals and browns look good together.

Isn't it great the way some fabric just jumps out at you and refuses to be left behind?

Hmm... now you've got me all curious as to what one does with fabric covered in underpining... I think they'll be a blast to work with- you'll have a smile on your face the whole time, that's for sure! The blue and brown collection looks good enough to eat!

I have some of the black and white bra/panty fabric........ I used a little in my Carolina Crossroads mystery. My kids say "Mom, that is so not right!"

Love the fabric! I too had a thing for that A Henry lingerie on the line fabric. I bought up a bunch of it & put it together with pastel polka dots & made myself a quilt! :)
