I trace some simple patterns that I know I'm going to use over and over onto poster board and cut it out.   I've made the same baby pants many times and it is great to just lay the carboard down and trace it onto the fabric, rather than pinning a pattern down.

Have you looked for "grommet" tools?  I think that is what you call them when you're using fabric.

I don't have a favorite line perse, but I do love anyone who stocks faux fur in colors other than black and white.. (especially the long shaggy dready stuff) and garment quality pvc (ooooh especially the really shiney stuff, and the stuff with the glitter in it.)

Hmmm.  I'm not familiar with the glittery pvc!  I've been selling this stuff called minkee poodle, which is wonderfully plush, very think fur-like poly. People mostly buy it for quilts and toys, I think, but I wish I had the skills/courage to make a coat our of it.

I second marimekko, and alexander henry.  I love amy butler prints, too!  Hoffman batiks are usually good.

I'll definitley look into the Hoffman batiks.  There are many suppliers out there, but Hoffman is pretty accessible.  I plan to carry all the Amy Butler fabrics and patterns. 

Thanks!

Did you mean designer by "line"?

My ultimate favorite: Marimekko (and of course it's hella expensive... what can i say? I've got expensive taste I guess!!!) 

And there are also the fabulous fabrics & prints by: Alexander Henry, Micheal Miller, Lonni Rossi, Munki Munki, hmmm... I always forget to look at the designer before I cut up the fabric, so it's hard to think of anymore....



Oh, I love these too!  I plan to have a few styles of Marimekko and some other pricey lines.  One thing I'm insistent about with my new site is that people should be able to order fractions of a yard (most sites I've seen require you to buy at least a yard.)  Even if you can't afford a whole yard of Marimekko, a quarter or a yard can go a long way in a purse, quilt, or other project, right?

I love the decorator fabric by that lady from Trading Spaces, but it SOOO EXPENSIVE!  The colors are great though!

I'm not familiar with this fabric.  Do you know which person it is?

Thanks!

It will be an online store.  I have been selling some fabric through a clothing site I own, and have been more successful with the fabric than with the clothes, so I'm going to focus on that.  It is one of those things where you just have to follow what you love for once in your life and there is nothing I love more than fabric!
