My friend Alicia and I went on a fabric adventure last week. We mistakenly disregarded Mapquest's directions and got a bit creative. Miles and miles later we ended up at a ginormous fabric paradise. I wish I took more pictures, I was just so overwhelmed with all they had in there. I think at one point the building housed a large grocery store. Now it just holds thousands upon thousands bolts of fabric. Some unique, some surprisingly affordable, some... well... I have a thing with clowns. Super creepy, not fun, not cute, not entertaining. Ronald McDonald... creepy to the billionth power. So when I walked by this McD flannel I thought to myself "who would hate a child enough to make them a blanket out of this?" Here sweet kind innocent little baby, goodnight, sleep tight, don't let Ronald attack you in your sleep.
We went on our adventure because we are tired of the fabric shops near us. I buy 99% of my fabric online, but once in a while I want to see it in person. Alicia needed some more fabric for her newest venture in extravagant blanket making. Just a single look at her cozy, gorgeous blankets makes you instantly want a newborn baby to cuddle them in. The fabrics, the hand stitching on the edges, the fabulous ribbon tags. All too good to be true. I promise you, this is beyond a blanket that dreams are made of. (Not the Ronald McDonald kind either!)
You can find these yummies on a brand new site called Cupcream.com. It is named after what her sweet niece calls ice cream. Her sister in law also is one of my sewing heroes and makes the most delicious vintage inspired dresses for little girls. Pop in and take a peek. You will be glad you did. If you don't I just might send Ronald after you.
