Fabrics On Etsy

I was bitten by the designer fabrics bugs recently. For the past few months, I’ve been browsing and buying fabrics by Amy Butler, Heather Bailey, Eric McMorris… There are lot of of them on Etsy but it’s not easy to find shops that ship them with decent shipping cost to Europe. I’m not willing to pay $12 shopping cost (without registration/insurance) for a fat quarter set (4 fat quarters) that costs $6.50 and for each additional bundle, it will be $6.50 extra. That’s $18.50 in total to ship $13 worth of fabrics!

There are, however, some Etsy sellers who stock a good collection of designer fabrics and offer reasonable shipping rate. I’ve had great buying experiences from some of them.

Fabric Closet stocks a great variety of fabrics from Alexander Henry to Michael Miller. She also has sample packs, you can choose any 6 designs from her store.

MyHeartandSew carries fabrics by Amy Butler, Robert Kaufman, Erin McMorris, Heather Bailey and more. I have ordered some by Erin McMorris and Sandi Henderson last week and am still waiting for them to arrive.

starlitnest has a large collection of fabrics. I have never bought from this seller before but she has a lot of designs and reasonable shipping to overseas.

Sew Love Fabrics offers many designer fabrics in the store. I haven’t ordered anything from her yet but definitely will. Sandi Henderson is my second favourite after Amy Butler.

Sweet Flavor is my favourite Japanese fabrics seller on Etsy. Besides fabrics, she also carries sewing notions, patterns, kits and other accessories from Japan. If you’re looking for some real kawaii Japanese fabrics, that’s the place you should check out! My first shipment arrived within 3 days and it was sent via normal mail.
