Fabulous Fabric Friday #5 [Chevrons & Calling All Fabric Lovers!]

Pin It
Welcome to this week's Fabulous Fabric Friday!
Chevrons, zigzag, whatever you want to call 'em... I'm seeing it everywhere and am totally hooked!
So fun and fresh, with great eye catching colors... you will see some Chevron love in the SoChick Shop in the near future!

If these colors don't make you happy, well, sorry.. I love them!! A prefect mix of sunshine poolside, no?!

Chevrons are such a happy, put-a-smile-on-your-face, bold print...  I think that's why I'm so drawn to it.  Even in darker colors, black/white, hunter/white, navy/white so fresh (yet classic and timeless), always fun:

Okay, here's the deal.  I want to try something new for Fab. Fab. Fridays, so let's see how it works...

When I started Fab. Fab. Friday a few posts back the idea was to post about my fabulous fabric finds, either fabrics I've used, would like to use, or just adore for their uniqueness, prettiness, etc.  Well, then it hit me... why not feature fabrics that other's love, too? I mean, if you're reading this blog you have some sort of appreciation for handmade, right? And, I'm willing to bet you either sew or craft for hobby or your own Handmade biz, riiiight?!

Well, here is my...

Official Call to Fabric Lovers!!

Do you know of some Fabulous Fabric?
This can be anything you have sewn/crafted with, would like to work with, or that you just love drooling over.   Try not to be too broad in saying 'I love all cotton'.  Most of us love cotton... heck, it's 'the fabric of our lives' and pretty much all I work with. *wink*.  I want to hear about a fabulous print, fabric line, designer. etc., that you think is Fabulous!

What makes this fabric Fabulous?
Tell me why you think this particular fabric is fabulous!  
Have you used it in a project? How and/or on what?  Is it out-of-print? Rare, unusual?

I'm always up for hearing creative uses, too! Did you frame it or showcase it somehow?  Are you hoarding it away for safekeeping because you can't bring yourself to get rid of it? Hey, it's totally okay if you have a prized piece of fabulous fabric stored for safekeeping, I do! (... confession of a fabricaholic.)

Send me an e-mail: 

Answer the above questions and include a picture or direct link to the Fabulous Fabric.  Please be sure to give proper photo credit if the pictures aren't your own.  Pinterest is great for this!
If you have a blog, include that in the e-mail as well... even better, do you have a blog post that features said Fab. Fabric? I want to see that, too!

The Plan:
Each week I will select a Fabulous Fabric from the e-mailed entries
 and feature it for Fabulous Fabric Friday!

I figure this is a great way to see and share fabrics I may have otherwise overlooked or not been exposed to... plus, I love seeing/hearing everyone else's thoughts on fabric, too!

I really think this will make for some awesome Fabulous Fabric Friday posts... so, get your Fabulous Fabric finds ready and e-mail away!

XxOo~ Melissa
