I’ve never met a crafter that doesn’t just love Amy Butler fabrics, have you? They’re gorgeous! She never fails to have massive appeal when she releases a new collection and I find her prints very hard to resist. Imagine my extreme pleasure when, through word of mouth, I discovered that there is a wonderful lady very near me who is an Amy Butler (and Heather Bailey!) retailer! Amy Butler that I can lay my hands on, not pay shipping for and go pick up immediately?! I’m in. I’m all about the instant gratification.
After a few emails and a couple of phone calls, I headed out yesterday to meet Joy of A Joyful Soul Fabrics. I walked through her lovely home to discover her fabric room. It’s what dreams are made of. Walls lined with shelves. Shelves filled with the most beautiful fabrics on the market. I was in heaven. I drove her crazy, I’m sure, as I pulled out 2 bolts here, 3 here, and changed my mind no less than 87 times. Who wouldn’t have trouble narrowing it down to 3 fabrics when you’re surrounded by a dizzying amount of Amy Butler and Heather Bailey?? Right?
So I made my fabric selections for Elliott’s Easter dress (another post on another day) and while she cut, we decided that we should do a giveaway. I loved her idea of giving away this Amy Butler Lavender Eye Pillow sewing kit.
It’s not just the pattern and the fabric, it’s got the lavender-scented fill, too! It’s all you need to pamper yourself at the end of a trying day. And what a fun, quick project it will be to sew up!
I love the fabrics included for the slipcover and carrying case.
Leave a comment telling me about your favorite Amy Butler & Heather Bailey fabrics and what sewing projects you’ve got lined up at the moment.
