Bobbie Lou's Fabric Factory, one wants to know where it all started!
From proprietress Chelsea Graham:
"My grandmother was an amazing seamstress who sewed clothes, dolls,
blankets and whatever else our imaginations could conjure up for her
three daughters and eight grandchildren. I still treasure every party
dress Bobbie Lou made me, which is why her spirit is the inspiration for
everything I do.
Since opening Bobbie Lou’s, I get to do what I
love most: find fun, bright fabrics for endless beautiful creations.
Having grown up all over the world—Africa, South America, Australia,
Europe, the Middle East—I tend to gravitate towards the vibrant and
eclectic. I only sell fabrics I truly love and would love to sew with
myself. Bobbie Lou would approve."
From the very first splash, Bobbie Lou's Fabric Factory exudes a upbeat, playful personality. But all the practical bits are there too: clean site design, shop by color, sale or new arrivals and free US shipping over $50 with discounts for international orders over $50 too!
So whether you're looking to stash some interesting low volume prints (Browse color/cream)...
Or crushing on Katarina Roccella's new Lavish collection, which couldn't be more right for spring, Bobbie Lou's Fabric Factory has lots of options, as eclectic and charming as promised!
Shop-owner Chelsea Graham got her start in the industry making blankets, burp cloths and onesies for her pregnant friends, which led to an Etsy shop, which led to an expansive fabric stash! True to her origins, her store is a great spot for fabrics to inspire your baby makes. You can find what you want quick if you shop by Style among loads of specific categories like "transportation" and "tribal" or check out the larger categories "little girl" and "little boy."
