I spent part of my afternoon at this fabric store. A friend had told my mom about this FOUR STORY fabric store, located in the heart of San Francisco. Since I have recently decided it is time to get my sewing adventures in gear again I was excited to go visit this store.
Every floor contains a different fabric, silk, lace, cotton, gingham….you name it you can probably find it. They also have a whole floor of buttons and appliqués, and misc. sewing items any person could probably imagine.
The fourth floor is filled with remnants – the “leftovers” off of bolts of fabric. This was what I had my eyes set out to find. I can’t afford to pay “normal” Britex prices. Seriously, some fabrics were $65.00 per yard of fabric. But I could not leave this crazy cool fabric store without purchasing something. So I set out in the remnant section to find some cotton flannel material to make burp cloths and changing pads with. I was actually a little disappointed with the selection, but I did find a good deal on some pink patterned material and blue patterned material. So I have the makings for both a boy and girl set of burp cloths. I still have to get terry cloth for the back, but I can get that locally for a good price.
Here are some pics of the fabric I bought. It was hard to get a good photograph of them so I am posting a few in hopes you can get the idea out of one of them!
