Welcome to the Fab Attic!

Have you all seen the mounds I call my fabric stash?  Of course you haven't unless you are my mother. or mother in law. or bff.  There's good reason. It's not normal for one person to have so. much. fabric.

With that said, I have made a big decision. This is coming from the girl who cried every time we had a yard sale. I'm going to sell some of my stash.  gasp! Yes, it's official. I have a shop to prove how serious I am about this.

Introducing the Fab Attic.  (full story here) I have been thinking about this for a while, and decided it's finally time to do something with all of those "someday" projects whose someday has already come and gone. You have those too, right?  I'm constantly moving from one project to the next, and unfortunately some get left behind.

I have to admit that I'm somewhat impressed with myself for doing this. I've been thinking about it and saying I would do it for a long time. That time has finally come. I have some great fat quarters (including some beautiful vintage linens) along with some half yard and full yard cuts and a brand new (and cheap!) copy of Amy Butler's Little Stitches.

The fabric and patterns in the shop are in great condition. Most have been prewashed  but haven't been cut into. A few have been cut into, and those are noted as such. I'm still getting a few items listed, but I've already made a sale so I figured it's time to let you all know!

Welcome to my attic!



  1. Hi Kelly,
    I have prints in my shop, I am putting them up today.

  2. p.s actually check in a couple of days as I will be scanning it to get better results

  3. Hey! Great job! I'm proud of you. :)

  4. Good job! I did the same thing a couple years ago. I had two 50-gallon tubs filled with fabric that I never had time to sew with because I had my two little babies that needed me much of the time. Now that I only have about 20 yards of fabric on me, I have time to sew nonstop with my 3 hours each evening after they are asleep. :-) I sold most of those old lovelies to someone that I still talk to on Facebook, so I know they are in good hands. I can't wait to see what else you list, lol!
