Funky Fabrix!

This week I decided to try my hand at winning some auctions by Brisbane’s favourite fabric store, Funky Fabrix. I haven’t yet made it to the store in person, and there’s a very good reason for that — I’d spend WAY to much money! All of the fabrics up for auction were half metres — perfect to use as embellishments such as pockets or waistbands on skirts (or they could even make some small throw pillows). I ended up winning three of the pieces I was after — yay!

The first one is Woodland Delight designed by Paula Prass for Michael Miller Fabrics.

The second one is the very geometric Groove by Caleb Gray for Robert Kaufman Fabrics (I’m thinking of maybe using this as the front panel for a throw pillow with some plain red fabric on the back).

And the third one is an Amelia print by Timeless Treasures, featuring lots of cute flowers and birdies.

I got all three for under $25, plus postage — and I should have them before the weekend!


  1. Hey Kylie, did you know that Funky Fabrix are having a vintage fabric sale in a few weeks time. Sat 9th and Sat 10th Oct - I'm going for sure.

  2. Nope, I didn't know about that - argh!

    I'm busy on the Saturday and have a wedding to attend on the Sunday afternoon. Maybe I can convince my husband to take me there on Sunday morning? Highly unlikely, but I'll try!

  3. Oh nice! I love that red, black, and white geometric print you got.
    It's funny, I was just looking at their website last night. They have some GREAT stuff. In particular, I want this and this. Both would make excellent skirt prints in my opinion.

    Can't wait to see what you do with your winnings!
