For those of you that don't know I have another addiction besides shoes--- Japanese Fabric! I love the quarky prints and making unexpected items with the fabric. The problem is the designs are seasonal, just like fashion, and most are printed in a limited run. So if you see something you like you must purchase it immediately, or suffer without it.
When Melody Miller released her Fall 2011 line, I wasn't sure about most of it; however, there was one print that I adored.... Love Letters.
|Love Letters by Melody Miller for Kokka Fabrics|
Unfortunately I was unable to find the fabric. Most of my regular suppliers only carried a couple of the prints from the line and this was not one of them. When I did finally locate some on-line retailers that carried this print, they were already sold out! I even searched e-Bay and Etsy, two sites I resort to when all else fails.
Today, determined to find this fabric, I decided to not search by the designer or manufacturer, I just simply typed 'typewriter' into the search function of Etsy, then I waited....... And there it was!!!!! Overjoyed, I purchased all that I needed, because as usual, I already have plans for this funky fabric. I am very excited and cannot wait for it to arrive. I will post photos of the metamorphosis, once it has occurred!
