Girl Charlee Fabrics
Last month I discovered Girl Charlee KnitFix. It happens on the second Tuesday of each month. You can buy a surprise bag of knit fabrics that come packaged in a canvas bag. The surprise is you don't know what you are getting and the fabrics are not available anywhere else on their site. You get 6 different 2 yard pieces of various knit fabrics.
This is the first KnitFix I received and I love all the fabrics except the middle one on the right. It is a Rainbow Tie Dye Ethnic Jersey Rayon Spandex Knit. It is kind of thin and very stretchy. I am determined to make something cute out of it. I have plans for all the others though. When I get some better pictures I will show you what I made with two of the knits already. The coral and white knit on the top right is one I have never dealt with before. It is a Boucle Hacci Sweater Knit and it is very stretchy and loopy and light weight.
So just a week or so after I got my first KnitFix I decided to order another one. It was so much fun receiving a surprise and deciding what i could make with the 2 yard pieces. I really like the small floral on a white background in this bag. I will probably make some kind of top with it. It is very light weight and flowy. I also like the grey and white stripe a lot. The one I wasn't to fond of is on the far left a Brown and Pink Stamped Floral Cotton Spandex Knit. It is a pretty bold large print and because it is a stamped fabric is is a bit stiff. I washed and dried it and it did soften up a bit but I am still not so sure about the print. As I said before I am determined to make something cute out of it too.
I am liking this KnitFix and I have already received my June bag too.
