Purchases from Economy Fabrics

On Saturday I went along to the local roll end shop - Economy Fabrics - which I don't get to very often due to location and opening hours.
If you are driving up the M1 past Junction 29 (Chesterfield - its the next one to Tibshelf Services) then it is definitely worth a little detour to go along, as they are only a very short distance away from the motorway junction.

The people who run this are absolutely lovely and a great many bargains can be had, so the lines can be long. Most of the general rolls of fabric are £2.00 a metre, though specialist ones like Christmas can be a little more. Because they source their fabric to be as inexpensive as possible they have whatever they have been able to get so it can be a little bit pot luck.

I bought some grey and blue jersey. These are for a cardiwrap, some PJs and hopefully the Burda Whale.
I also bought some cream upholstery fabric. This is for recovering the dining chairs.
And some cotton fabric with a cute Panda print, because I love pandas and want some more PJs.
This fabric is thin and narrow width, so I may well piece with some other black and white print fabrics for an interesting effect. Summer weight only though so I shall wait until next year to sew them up.

Ah! You love Pandas like I love penguins!

So cute, your Pandas. Looking forward to seeing how you use your fabrics.

I'll have a look out for economy fabrics next time I'm travelling down the M1, it's always good to break journeys up with a bit of fabric shopping!
