Gratuitous fabric purchase

Couldn't resist I've been trying not to buy any fabric unless I have a specific purpose for it...but I knew I was going to break that goal once I saw the new Happy Drawing line by Ed Emberley. See, I have fond memories of this book from my childhood, so the fabric has a nostalgic feel for me.

The line has a really fun panel.

And the squiggles are just cool.

I know I have some baby gifts to make in the near future, and Luke is eying the dragon print, so I'm sure I'll put it to good use. Have I sufficiently justified my purchase?

(I got mine from Hawthorne Threads, but it looks like some prints are out of stock already. The Fabricworm newsletter said they're taking preorders.)

Those squiggles are perfect! I've been good about resisting this line so far, but I can feel that starting to crumble. Way too much fun! Can't wait to see what you do with it!

I bought almost every print I could at Hawthorne Threads, too! I also generally don't buy entire fabric lines, but I couldn't resist. :D

Love it! I am trying not to buy more fabric, too. But I may have to cave with these. I also spent a lot of time with those drawing books when I was little!

I absolutely heart those squiggles!! I love that Luke is eyeing that dragon print, it looks awesome...I might just need some of that one too!

Totally cute, unique and justifiable :)

i told my husband this was the year of obscene fabric purchasing. i feel i have been on the mild side so far. i should try harder, although, i bought a fq pack of summersville this morning. maybe you should come to the dark side with me... keep up the spending!
