This is ... My Favourite Craft shop

This is like asking me to choose my favourite child, I don’t know if I can do it. I have had to break it down, Australian online I love Duckcloth and the new Kelani, both have free postage and sell as little as fat quarters. For my love of Japanese Sonatine and Karaku on Etsy are fabulous. American Patchwork it has to be Crafters Vision, they have a great range and are usually 20% cheaper than everywhere else $7.70/ metre and $12 up to 7 or 8 yards delivery that takes about 5 days. I have to say though the one that started it all was the beloved Aunty Cookie – It was her gorgeous fabrics that made me think I will get out the sewing machine, my long lost friend, and get into some creating, and I haven’t stopped since. Ooohhh I am just so excited thinking about all that great stuff.
Hip Hip for HandMaiden and a Hooray for Three Buttons.

And just to finish it off - More pants using Echino Swallows from Duckcloth and Sprout's Giraffe from Kelani. One more pair of pants to finish tonight and I promise something different next week for those of you that are sick of seeing pants, pants, pants.

I'm not tired of the pants - I love the pants - they are fab. I love seeing your different combinations - they look great, bet they're comfy too.

I love Duckcloth too, I bought some Echino fabric from them heavily discounted - now you've reminded me to go.

Lots of great tips here - thanks for sharing.

I love Duckcloth and Kelani too. Its so much fun ordering and then receiving that special parcel in the mail.

I love your latest pants. Show us more, I say ... more! And the little dress with the Cookie fabric and amazing buttons is fabulous.

Pants, pants and more pants... I love seeing your lovely handmade pants. Clothes sewing is slightly limited when you're only sewing for boys (like me..still waiting for a niece).
Great fabric shopping links..it's really hard to resist the temptation to shop online today.
