Knit Fabrics

There is a serious shortage of knit jersey and interlock fabrics at major fabric stores.  I really don't understand it, since most shirts for adults and almost all the shirts, skirts and pants for little kids are made out of it.  WHAT GIVES?! So I posted a comment on Make It and Love It (yes, I'm obsessed with her blog), asking where she got her cute knit fabrics and she told me mostly from repurposing knit clothes.  That's a great idea, and I definitely do that, but when I want to make something extra cute for the kids, a plain colored knit shirt of mine just ain't gonna cut it. 

I did luck out though and another lady commented on my question and referred me to Chez Ami fabrics online.  I went there and about fell out of my chair.  The price for their sale items is unbeatable and I was told their quality is super high.  Plus their fabrics are 60" width.  I had to resist buying a yard of every fabric they had and in the end settled on about 8 (for now). :)

If you're trying to find cute knits (and woven and swimwear fabric too), then check out this store.  You won't regret it!  A big thank you to Katie (whoever you are) for passing along this great secret!

Hello Anissa and friends! We are so pleased you found our fabric! You sound a lot like me when I was MUCH younger - and I, of course, eventually turned my sewing into a business, which is now 30 years old, and I cook to relax and clear my mind from the details of my 'day job'. Happy sewing and cooking, and crafting!

Thanks Patsy! Hopefully I will have some cute clothes made out of your fabric to post about very soon.
