Stella examining a black and white distressed fabric while showing some subtle enthusiasm over a black rayon/lycra knit.
Normally my children would rather clean their room than accompany me on a fabric shopping trip. I think I must have damaged them at an early age! But my eldest wants to make a tulle dress and we needed some black stretch lining for that so I was able to lure her with me to a local fabric fair on Sunday. And you know what - she enjoyed it. She was especially intrigued by the high end distressed and "punctured" fabrics that seems to be all the rage right now in the fabric stores around here.
We ended up shopping knits for her and her stripe loving little sister and if there is one thing that Swedish fabric vendors do well it's catering for children. I saw so many fun and colorful fabrics with great prints. Didn't go all in though since there is just too little time to make all the stuff I want.
Edit: For all you locals, the fair is called Symässan and is now located at Kviberg near Gamlestaden in Göteborg. But the next one is not until spring unfortunatly. The fair has gone through a huge improvement since last year, with much more sellers and a bigger venue.
Three fair sellers with on-line stores that I can personally recommend (ie I am a happy customer).
