Lookie what I got!
I was super lucky to get my hands on a whole bunch of the yet to be released Far Far Away III Heather Ross fabric! The photos I'm posting today were taken with my iPhone but I will take better, more detailed photos over the weekend and add them soon. I won't be selling these but have more than enough for myself and I want to get some samples in the mail this week to my fabric friends. There are a few ways for me to send you some.
#1 Comment here. I will send samples of both weights to the first 3 people to comment. Then I'll draw 3 more people from the remaining comments on Wednesday 5/11 to send more samples too. Be sure to tell me your favorite print in your comment so I can send it to you if you win!
#2 Swap with me on Flickr. I have an ISO list in my profile. For all my swaps this week (including the ones I already have pending) I will send you some samples in addition to our even swap.
#3 Buy something from my Etsy shop. Every purchase between yesterday 5/5 and Monday 5/9 (hadn't to shorten time as I'm running low) will come with some samples of these new Heather Ross fabrics.
Now for a brief review. The lighter weight is my favorite! It's nice and thin with wonderful drape. The thicker weight is comparable to Rabbits & Racecars but not exactly the same feel. It is less scratchy than FFA2. Upon first look, the girls with horses in the yellow colorway appear to have gray hair. The closer I look at it there is a little warmth to the "gray" giving it a somewhat sandy look. That's how I see it, unless my eyes are playing tricks on me. I'll get some close up photos asap.
