Gone fabric shopping....at home!

So, I decided to dig through my box of fabric that is at the bottom of the pile and see if I even remembered what was in it and if I could find some inspiring fabrics inside of that box! Low and behold, I probably forgot more than half of what was in there!! I pulled out a few pieces that I thought I could find a project for..... This first one is probably my favorite, fanciest fabric. It is a white background with pink designs and it is a border print. It is brocade-ish, silkish, and I don't remember the exact fabric type, but it looks and feels expensive. I had always imagined a really pretty fitted dress for my dd's. The orange one is a cotton lawn and the green one is a cotton batik. Both would make great lightweight skirts or sundresses, or summer tops.....
Here are a couple of cotton batiks that I thought could possibly go for another "redondo" skirt, I don't have a whole lot left maybe only 1/2 yard of each.
Again, I thought these could go together for a layered ruffly skirt for my dd's....
And yet, one more option for a skirt.
So, I guess I had better stop scouring the internet for fabric to purchase and start digging into my own fabric storage!! It seems that I have many options for many things! This is only a few things out of that big box......then there are 4 more big boxes of fabric. I must stop buying fabric!!!!!! I know....it is an addiction. I am sure I will be posting soon my new fabric purchases!!! I just purchased a new pattern for another skirt for my dd's. :) Happy sewing (and fabric and pattern collecting)!

I love those fabrics! I remember that orange-pink paisley lawn, I had it in my hand but put it back. Can't wait to see that made up. But I am totally jealous about that first border print! That is gorgeous!

I also went through my stash and was amazed at what I found. There was a piece or two... OMG what was I thinking!!??? I can't wait to see what you create with your new found treasures.

Great fabrics to choose from. Are you going to make yourself anything, or just your dds.

good question....I have been trying to lose weight lately, and don't feel like making a whole lot for myself (I would like to make something in a smaller size.....), so for now, I am sticking to my dd's!
