Gift Certificate giveaway from Bobbie Lou’s Fabric Factory

I’m so excited to introduce a new fabric shop today, Bobbie Lou’s Fabric Factory. This etsy shop is run by Chelsea and inspired by and named after her grandmother Bobbie Lou who loved to sew.
Chelsea has a great eye for unique, colorful fabric and her shop is stocked with a great variety, including lots of fabrics that are rare finds. 
Some recent collections include Sweet as Honey by Bonnie Christine for Art Gallery Fabrics. I’m so in love with those Beehives and the Honeycomb especially.
Another recent Art Gallery collection in stock is Leah Duncan’s Meadow. Fabric is available not only in yardage, but Fat Quarter cuts as well.
Chelsea also has a fun variety of nautical themed fabrics including collections from Michael Miller and Riley Blake. 

But I think the thing I love most about Bobbi Lou’s is the huge variety of whimsical prints that are “off the beaten path”. For example a large selection of Alexander Henry prints including bright dia de los muertos themed prints, as well as unique prints from Camelot fabrics and Cloud 9 fabrics.

Seriously, if your style is loud, whimsical, and full of saturated color, or if you’re just trying to get out of a creative funk, you will love Bobbie Lou’s selection! Also a great resource if you’re looking for I-spy prints (including in the Clearance selection.) I think it’s one of a kind shop.

And today Chelsea is generously giving away a $50 Gift Certificate towards anything in her shop to one of you! To enter take a quick trip to Bobbie Lou Fabric Factory and leave a comment here sharing something that you love. For a second entry, follow @BobbieLouFabrics on Instagram, and leave a comment letting me know. GIVEAWAY CLOSED.

    What a great shop. I love the mix and match bundles. It's not often that you can choose your own fat quarters. Plus I seriously love the pink sewing machine logo. 😉

  2. says

    I especially like the way the fabric is sorted. If I'm making a quilt for a boy, I can go directly to the "boy" type fabrics rather than looking through tons of fabrics I'm really not interested in. Ease of selection is wonderful. Thanks for a chance to win.

  3. says

    As a Spanish teacher I love that she carries the dia de Los Muertos line. It is easier to teach about this lovely artifact when I have fun artifacts to show the kids.

  4. says

    Love her huge selection of geometrics. I sew blocks for a charity group, and having geometrics on hand allows me to make blocks that are less gender specific since we never know who will receive the quilts.

  5. says

    I would get some chevrons and nautical themed yardage to go with the quilt I'm making for my grandpa. He grew up in the inner harbor so anything nautical is right up his alley :)

  6. says

    Yes- she has TONS of great Alexander Henry prints, many of which I've never seen before. I love those! I'm definitely a fan! Thanks for the chance to win. (

  7. says

    She has so many great fabrics! Love that Meadow fabric line (amazing!) though I just told my son I'd make him a new tractor quilt for his 3rd birthday and I see she has tractor fabric. I'm going to favorite her on my etsy account!

  8. says

    Michael Miller Man Flakes in aqua! I'm hooked on snowmen (and snowflakes) for decorating, over the winter season! Thanks for the giveaway!

  9. says

    Not sure I could narrow it down to one but those Alexander Henry dia de los muertos skulls are the bomb, especially the one with the goats. My girl loves that whole thing and I have a plan for a birthday quilt for her using them. Right of to Instagram then.

  10. says

    I love the selection! There are so many fabrics to choose from. The clearance section has 250 fabrics! I could spend a few hours browsing this store. So hard to choose when you have this many options.

  11. says

    I must be in a Michael Miller mood because the fabrics that caught my eye today are all his: Mod Fish in blue, Treelights in Twilight, and Norwegian Woods Too!

  12. says

    OMG: you weren't kidding. I love her collections and the way she has her store organized. I think I already picked out over $30 of stuff!!! But I love, love, love the elephants from Ed Emberley. I may have to go find that book. :)

  13. says

    Love the unique mix of fabrics. I'm especially crazy about Valori Wells Karavan marrakech with the elephant. Beautiful!

  14. says

    Really nice site, loved the Sommerville Study, thinking of coming up with some bookends for my grandbaby and this would be a nice place to start!

  15. says

    I LOVE the Valori Wells Karavan Marrakech in Artisan & Alexander Henry Flower Fairies in Light Tea / Bright , but there are so many great fabrics, I am sure the $50 gc would be spent in a moment!

  27. says

    Cloud 9 Picture Pie – both raccoon and fox prints are favorites. I&#39;m going to be a grandmother for the first time and am looking at potential baby projects!

  28. says

    There are elephants and owls along with a few fox, VW&#39;s and skinny legged birds. There are vibrant colors and all sorts of shapes with all sorts of florals. What is most special???? How she named her shop! What a touching memory and tribute. I love paisley fabrics in bright colors.

  29. says

    How to choose!! I love the Alexander Henry Cartas Marcadas for the vignettes and I adore the Alexander Henry Gotas De Amor because I see Frida in it!! What a cool shop!
