Thank you Mr Fed-Ex!

Look what arrived today....

I found a new fabric retailer Chawla's which has such a huge range of fabrics at very good prices. They don't carry designer fabrics but loads of really good quality fabrics and a wider range than I've seen from many retailers! I thought I'd show you what I got......

Look at this loveliness!

This is a lovely pink linen (£5.50/m) which the camera hasn't shown very well. I'm planning to make a dress for Miss C with this, if it all comes off I'll show you soon!

This is a flannelette (£2.74/m) which I was thinking I might make nightdresses for the girls

This is a pretty poly cotton floral (£1.70/m!) which I bought loads of as its soo cheap. Not sure what I'll make with this yet but too lovely and well priced to let it go by.

This is a lovely Embroidery Anglais (£2.75/m) which is a nice lilac which again doesn't show very well, I'm thinking summery dresses with this.

A happy white with cerise hearts (£2.99/m)

This is probably my favourite, it just looks so beautiful (£2.99/m) and I'll probably make something for Miss M as she loves red but I think it would also look lovely as an applique fabric to jazz up something plain.

This stripey cotton (£2.99) is going to be used with the wadding below to make a cushion for the girls seats.

and the ric rac and daisy trim is just because you can't have enough trims!

FYI - I have no links to this fabric retailer at all I was just very impressed with the prices and range and wanted to share with others. I ordered late on the Tuesday and it arrived by lunchtime on the Friday using their Budget delivery option 3-5 days, and there were more immediate option if you are really desperate for your goodies!

  1. I love those fabrics! I think the poly cotton floral one would make a lovely summer skirt.
