Always Check Twice .. Fabric Finds Again

Hello my dear friends,

always check twice and some times even three time because you never know. That is a little advice I would like to share with you lovely bloggers today.

I did so yesterday ... checked for the third time and was lucky!
With what you ask?! ... With finding more of the Valentine's and Easter fabric panels that I have sold in my Etsy shop and as I was told and as I told you ...they were all gone! Well, that wasn't true.

I had to head out to take a look at a furniture store for some new pieces for our house which wasn't too far away from the fabric store I go to so I couldn't resist going there again ~ you never know! 
 I had a little more time to look around this time (don't forget this store must have over 1000 bolts of fabric) so I started to look in places I hadn't looked before and you won't believe what I found! The apparently 'sold out' Valentine's tag and Easter/Spring tag fabric. Was I happy? ..Oh, yes I was!
I was able to buy the last (?) two panels of  Valentine's tags and the last (?) three panels of the Easter/Spring fabric.
All of the Valentine's and Easter/Spring fabric panels will be listed in my Etsy shop for sale and hopefully some of you that unfortunately missed out last times will now be able to purchase some of this neat fabric after all.

The panels will be in my Etsy shop on Thursday morming, March 27th at 8 am EST.

The same rules apply as they did the last two times. One piece per theme per customer and no reserving of the fabric.  
 In my search I also found St. Patrick's Day tags panels but I decided not to buy any of them at this moment in time but I did take a few photos for you to see what it looked like.

Very lovely tags again.
And last but not least ...
... I found such another neat fabric and it is so just me because of what is on it ... namely antique sewing machines. Take a look!

Aren't they just lovely?!
I actually have several antique sewing machines, most of them are antique children's sewing machines ~ maybe that is why I like this fabric so much.
I haven't decided if I am going to buy any of it or not just yet since I am still working on an idea of what I could create it. I have one little thing in mind but it's only my first idea. I will just have to put a little more thought into it first and then make my mind up but I will keep you up to date on it one I know myself.
It was so nice of you to stop by today and visit me here again here at Todolwen and I would love to see you here some time soon again.
I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.
Have a peaceful and creative day,


  1. i would love to purchase the St. Pat's day panel, if you decide to get it in would you let me know?

  2. Was für ein Schnäppchen! Und der Stoff mit den Nähmaschinen ist zauberhaft!

  3. I have some of that sewing machine fabric! When I got it, there were several other coordinating fabrics available too. I made a sewing machine cover (along with a needlecase and a thread catcher) for a friend at Christmas out of it.

  4. That sewing machine fabric is extraordinary! Maybe you could make a quilted hanging for the wall? Hugs! deb

  5. I love that sewing machine fabric!! I collect antique toy machines and the bigger singer's too with the wood cases.

  6. What lucky finds. I adore that sewing machine fabric. Don't have any antique machines of my own...but love the look of them all.

  7. SO glad you looked again! I would love to get some of the Valentine fabric, I better get to bed so I don't miss the opening tomorrow...oh, a few hours! you are three hours ahead of me. that means I need to get up in 4 hours! Yikes!

  8. All those vintage tag fabrics are so lovely, Karen! Easy to imagine all the things you could do with them. And I love the St. Patrick's Day tags. Wishing you a lovely day.

  9. These fabrics are all very lovely and I am sure you could create a lot of beautiful projects with it, when there is time enough to do so.

    Hugs Ines♥
