I just spent the last 2 hours browsing for fabric online. Generally I start at Fat Quarter Shop and then see if I can beat the price elsewhere. I like their pictures of the collections.
What was I shopping for? I'm doing a totally wonderful trade with a knitting friend of mine, Maiya.
She blogs at Maiya knits. Mayhem ensues.
I'm making her an advent calendar and she's knitting a few gifts for me.
I hate picking fabric for other people! What if they don't like it?
I've decided to use a charm pack, I figured that would give me the most variety at the least cost.
She asked for something fun and funky - she's got two little boys.
Not a lot of options out there.
I looked at Santa's Little Helpers
but her kids are afraid of sock monkeys. don't laugh, mine are too.
After searching more I've narrowed it down....
which I love, but I'm not sure it's "fun" enough...
which I can't find in charm packs - I'd have to buy a layer cake... (oh darn)
What do you think?
Are there other fun and funky collections I've missed?
