    Help Finding Fabric

    I'm wondering if any of you wonderful quilters can help. I'm looking for Fashionista Fabric by SPX Fabric. There are several variations but I'm looking for a specific one. I made a purse for myself and for my DD and GD several years ago. I would like to make another but I can't find this pattern. Here's a pic of the purse I made. Well, I didn't find the one I made but this is one someone on QB made and I saved the picture. This is the fabric I'm looking for. Thanks for your help.

    Don't give up. I have been looking for the panel used in the 2017 Minnesota quilt of the year and was told by many shops that those are gone and you would not find it. Hubby and I went on a road trip the last couple of days and stopped at 6 different shops. I asked at each one if they had the panel. Answer - those are gone, won't find it. I persisted and found it in two different shops in Northern Minnesota. Oh happy day!

    I have gone on-line to Fabric Warehouse,{ Portland, Oregon} (?) I believe and they have been successful for me. Only con is you have to promise to order 5 yards when they find it and call you. My fabric was 5 years old, but they found the two pieces that I needed. I still get email news from them, but financially not able to order anything for awhile. Loved buying by the bolts of 14 to 16 yards and getting a 40% discount on it, to use up as background colors. The Snow white in Kona and Black I have used a lot; also have their Cream, Butter, and light beige. So glad to have them now that the budget is tight.

    I believe this fabric is from the line called "Little Black dress", sorry I don't know who makes it.

    I had a small amount of this fabric at one time I made a purse too. I Purchased it at Hancock fabrics before they went out of business. Good luck I hope you find it.

    I just did a search on Google and there are many images of it but someone on Etsy has it available. Good luck!

    I get a comment nearly every time I go out. Someone will stop me and want to know where I got my purse.
