New Fabric

I buy a lot of my fabric from sellers on Etsy.  While I enjoy visits to the local fabric store, the cool fabrics just aren’t there.  I know some people are really into the whole upcycling thing.  I am not.  Firstly, I can’t go into second hand clothing stores.  Within 5 minutes I’m having an asthma attack.  Secondly, it grosses me out.  I just cannot get passed how disgusting and dirty I feel after being in there.  Chalk that one up to Jew neurosis, I guess.  I don’t want to make things out of clothes strangers wore and I certainly wouldn’t ever want it on my child or make something to sell or give out of something that someone else wore.  My family has been environmental and recycled before most of the world knew the world so you’ll have to forgive me if old worn gross smelly clothes don’t make it into my fabric stash.  (No offense to those who use it, truly, it’s a hangup for me!)

Anyway, these arrived in the mail the other day.  I bought them from one of my favourite Etsy sellers, bytinster.  She’s a doll and ships so fast, her stuff often arrives before stuff being shipped within North America.  Packages of fabric always make my day a little brighter.
