For the Love of Fabric

I have a little folder in the column on the side labeled 'Fabrics' and I was looking through it tonight for some inspiration for Christmas dresses for the girls, when I stumbled on the link for this fabric store. I could stare at these fabrics for hours. I love the design, the colors, the simplicity of it all. I'm not sure if they ship to the States, but even if I don't think I could afford it (those prices are for a 1/4 meter, yikes!). They are sure fun to look at though. I think these are my favorites, but really I could buy any of their patterns, in any color and be happy. Check them out!
What would you make with them? The top one I think would make some lovely pillows for our living room. The middle one I could see as a dress with clean lines. The bottom one I'm not sure, but I just love it.

Poodle Skirts

Nothing like using your brain to figure something out sans pattern. These skirts made me do just that. They are complete circles and I had to figure out how big to make the holes in middle. I ended up doing Sophia's with a waistband and button closure. Clara's is just gathered with elastic. Really not much sewing at all since they were really just one big circle, just finishing the waist and then I zig zagged the hem. Hobby Lobby sells the iron on poodles (only in pink) if you ever need them in the future.

The Curtains

The curtains for the girl's room are finally finished. I used the lovely handkerchiefs that I inherited and had fun picking out which ones to use.
