Funny Little Prints for Sasha, Gregor and the gang!!

My name is Marti and I am a fabric addict.....  

Anyone who sews can relate as we all have too much fabric!  Although I sew with vintage fabrics a lot, it doesn't stop me from shopping for new fabrics, too.  One type is can't resist is called "novelties" in the quilting community.  

Finding novelties for Sasha is a bit trickier than you might think.  There are 2 issues to think about: 
1. the design is the right size (often they are just a tad too big)
2. the design is close enough together (otherwise, you are going to have one car on the front of the shirt, lol!)

I took pictures of all my novelty prints I had at the time (2013) I have acquired (ahem) a 'few' more, since!

I am posting this so you can see what is available in case your kids NEED a new shirt, dress, etc. in a fun print!! 



#4 the dogs are a tiny bit bigger than I'd like but they are so cute!!
The bottom print is black with generic
Native American designs. 

#5  designs on the left are sewing motifs and a bit too big...not sure why I photographed it!  The design on the left is fine!

#6 the bear fabric is 100% cotton flannel

#7 the one on the right is dragonflies in case it isn't clear!

#8 ladybugs are a tiny bit bigger but will work ok

  1. Hi There is some designs of your fabric I like....how do I get in contact to speak to you...do you have an email address please....

  2. Wow Marti! That is about all I can say at the moment... I especially love the music prints, but they are all fabulous prints and will make some great fun outfits.

  3. You've got an eye for fabric! My grandmother adored fabric. When she went in a fabric shop, she was like a kid in a candy store.

  4. I know the feeling - every opportunity to find fabric even if we already have a stash of it is irresistible. You've got quite an impressive collection of novelty prints but I'm sure there is room for me!

  5. Wow, Marti, brilliant fabrics. Some of them are just so delightful! I must have another look later!!! Makes one want to be able to sew, ha ha! xxx

  6. Oh my Marty, what a great stash of prints with wonderful variety! I have a huge stash of fabric, too, although a bit more on the conservative side. It is impossible for me to resist buying fabric even when I know I have more than I'll ever use!

  7. Love your stash !!! It's really hard to find small prints here in the USA. I walked through a Fabric/Quilt shop last week and only had one bolt of a fall print calling "SASHA". But knowing what I all ready have,I said "no".

  8. I like flower prints mostly, but I bought some with a Russian doll print on a navy background that I have yet to decide what to make with it. I've only been doing my Sasha blog since March :)

  9. Awesome post ! There is a large collection of dresses.
