Fab Fabric Friday - Week 7

This week I selected a few bundles because I missed last week due to not feeling well.  These are ready to ship at  Kim is constantly getting in new fabrics and I like to showcase some of those new fabrics as well as others that I just like in general.  These fabrics can be bought by the yard or by the fat quarter bundle.  So sit back and enjoy this week's mix of bright colors of summery as well as holiday patterns & something to really take you back to your younger cartoon days.  Let the creative juices flow! 

CLICK ON THE IMAGES TO ORDER OR BROWSE KIMBERLY'S SHOP.  If you place an order, please let her know you saw her at KoolBeenz.  Thanks.

Okay, this week has a great mix of designs!  I definately see stockings, tree skirts, oven mitts, aprons, wall hangings & blankets.  Holiday table runners, pillows, little girls' holiday dresses for the big day.  Bullwinkle is great for any age child, young and old.  I see pillowcases, quilts/blankets, some floor cushions, matching curtains, etc.  I am really diggin' the Samba collections!  I see lots of stuff: quilts, purses, dresses, headbands, pillows, shower curtains, floor cloth, screened patio cushions/pillows, table cloths, car organizers, fabric boxes for STUFF, tote bags, ALL KINDS OF STUFF!

This was a fun give-away in that I got to read lots of great funny stories, some were some real doozies!.  If you missed reading them, you can click here

There were 121 comments.  Thank you to everyone that entered.  Give-aways wouldn't be possible without sponsors & fabric addicts like yall!  I didn't realize that so many people love other people's fabric scraps/de-stashes!  I will definately do this again in the future.  If anyone wants to sponsor a fabric stash give-away, by all means let me know.

One of the funniest moments I have had was when I was walking around Walmart with one of my bras hanging out the bottom of my jeans. Talk about static cling!
