Recently one of my readers emailed and asked me how I found buying fabric online - and also from another country.
Well, I'm happy to purchase things online and often do. With anything I buy, I shop around to find exactly what I want, at the best price I can - and if that is in another country then that's fine!
A few weeks ago, I was looking to purchase some ruffle knit fabric. My daughters both have tops made with this gorgeous fabric that they almost worn out because they love them and wear them so much!
I looked here in my hometown of Cairns (the easy option), but couldn't find any, so then I looked online - and found the best place to get ruffled fabric to be The Fabric Fairy.
They have a great selection and all at a good price, so I went ahead and ordered some!
The website was really easy to use and very quickly I'd placed my order and received my confirmation.
Now The Fabric Fairy is in the USA and I'm in Australia, so I had to wait for international postage - but it only took 2 weeks (which is fast to get up to our small little town up here in Far North Queensland!) and I was so excited when my package arrived with my gorgeous ruffle knits!
My girls approve of the colours and can't wait for me to make them new tops! So I plan to get those done in the next week - and I'll post all about them and try to add a tutorial too!
There's enough fabric to make something for myself too! Yippee!!
So if you're looking for fabric - don't be afraid to buy online and buy from another country too!
I can highly recommend the fabulous Fabric Fairy.
They specialise in knit fabrics, but also stock plenty others together with patterns and notions.
Just look at this cute fabric which is set to arrive in store any day now..
The Fabric Fairy herself - Megan is also passionate about fabrics and super helpful if you need any guidance or advice about your fabric choice.
So what are you waiting for - head on over to The Fabric Fairy now and see what you can find!
Happy Fabric Shopping!
