i couldn't resist


last week i purchased my first japanese fabric.
from bee square fabrics.
i think i found a new favorite on-line fabric shop.
(check out the sale section, too!)
oh, and please don't blame me if you blow your grocery budget on fabric. :)

What grocery budget? We have to eat? Since when?

Amy @ Park City Girl said...

Jackie said...

Very sweet! Food in overrated!

So you blew the food budget Amanda? Well yeah, been there done that myself! I see fabric and my eyes glaze over and something clicks in my brain, before I know it, there is more fabric than food! Your pieces are so pretty!

Lisa Boyer said...

Oh, you evil temptress! Thanks for the link--I've never seen that shop before. Looks like we'll go hungry this week.

another amy said...

Oh yes. Now you're done for. Once you taste those Japanese prints, your sucked-in for good.

Cheryl A said...

V and Co. said...

Tracy said...

I found a few I really liked on etsy, but man were they pricey! Sometimes they have the cutest little animals on them!

denitza said...

The new fabric is so pretty! I'm off to check the site!

debbiejune said...

My grocery budget is ALWAYS spent on fabric--my husband just hasn't noticed yet. Hey--then why haven't I lost any weight!? Great fabric. I'll go look. :)

Lorraine said...

Oh they are so cute ! I have 2 jelly rolls of Minny Mui just looking sweet on the shelf .

rachel griffith said...

groceries...who needs those???
haha.

SUPER cute fabrics!!!

Terriaw said...

I still have not purchased my first Japanese fabric, so I better stay away from that shop cuz your fabrics are adorable! Do you know what you're going to make yet?

i wasn't going to look at their sale section, but I am a sucker for sales and now have blown the grocery budget.. :) We may starve, but at least my house will look cute!

Let's get real - what's more important food or fabric? FABRIC!!! :):)

oh you're headed down a slippery slope now! I stumbled upon Japanese fabrics a couple of months ago and have a full blown bonafide obsession! My weakness is the linen; and wait until you get hooked on the sewing tape/trim! I have the cutest Matroyshka doll linen tape that I fondle occasionally but will not cut... superbuzzy is wonderful too...

Heather said...

oh, no! i can't look! my kids won't be able to eat. these fabrics are adorable.

Alissa said...

Ha - who needs to eat when there's fabric to buy?!?

Lori Holt said...

Soooo CUTE - I'm going to check out that site right now! Thanks for sharing:)

miettelove said...

those are adorable! Oh no I'm hooked.

amanda said...

I have that yellow fabric too! I usually bought mine at Superbuzzy so thanks for new store info.

Philigry said...

so funny! i totally do that. i think, okay, we can go without that this week, so i can buy a bit more crafting supplies. somebody always notuces, though.
i love, love that fabric! can't wait to see what you make with it.

Susan said...

Well then I am in good company because I just purchased my FIRST japanese fabric from Bee Square too; mine should be here any day now.

Carrie said...

Oh so cute, cute, cute! I really like your new fabric and I have marked the website for future shopping :o) Thanks!

Thimbleanna said...

Ooooh, ooooh, whatcha gonna make Ms. Crazy??? Those are beeeeuuuuteeeful!!!

WoolenSails said...

What fun fabric. I got a Japanese craft book as a prize and love the neat patterns they have.

Debbie

Whosies said...

oh my heck...they are addicting. watch out!!!

littlebluecottage said...

Listen, I just do as I'm told. I looked there because you told me to.

And then I purchased three fabrics I totally do not need, but completely want.

I have no will or strength when up against fabulous fabric. Also, I can't believe that I had never seen this site before.

Amy said...

I wouldn't have been able to resist either!

My local quilting shop is having a retirement sale - all fabric 35% off - needless to say, I have no grocery budget left anyway.

Reg said...

I love sales! My local shop is online too. They let me buy online and pick up in person so I don't have to shop with my kids! It's a beautiful world! Check out their end of the bolt stuff, ericas.com It's always changing and 40% off!

Janet said...

I love your color choices. Check my blog for some interesting hints and ideas for Asian fabrics. As you will see, I'm hooked on anything Asian.

mtelizabeth said...

Oh, these are cute! Possibly cuter than ones from MY favorite online fabric shop?
(I have some Alice in Wonderland cuteness I'm going to use for a camera strap cover)

The Calico Cat said...

I did not need that temptation... (LUckily I just got back from a quilt show & am still feeling the effects of that shopping spree.)

jaime said...

Dang. Thanks to you, I just bought more fabric. Cleared out their last two yards of a Heather Bailey Sway and got some other good Amy Butler to boot.

Natalie said...

Ooooohh pretty! I am in love with those cute japanese fabrics and would probably go nuts if given half a chance. This is one example of why I'm glad my husband keeps a tight rein on our budget...it keeps me honest. Honest but covetous.

Kerri said...

you picked out some really cute ones! i have some of the ducks, but might need to get some of the bunnies!

lera said...

Man, oh man, they are cute!!!

jacquie said...

it's a slippery slope...you're on your way! love these..i haven't taken the plunge yet, but i sure have looked a bunch!

Rebekah said...

cute fabric! She has a really nice store

pratima said...

aww.. they are so sweet!

Cristin said...

I've bought some japanese fabric... from Japan! I LOVE IT! So fun, and unique to the US :-) Very nice.

sulu-design said...

I'm a total sucker for these Japanese prints. Thank goodness (on behalf of my wallet) that I don't sew.

nettie said...

oh no, there's no turning back now. Once you start, there's no going back. so adorable.

Jenny said...

So cute, I will have to check it out and pinch my self to keep from buying some for a while.

Uh oh, I hope you don't get my addiction to this. I have that little green bunny, too.

MeganZ said...

Oh man, I'm so addicted to this cute japanese fabric! Been buying it for a while now - and bee square is a great store. I like lucky Kaeru too, on etsy. Enjoy!
