Etsy Shop Showcase Review & Giveaway: Fabric ala Carte

I recently stumbled upon another great fabric source on ETSY. Fabric ala Carte is the shop of Kris, an "empty nester" mom of three and new grandmother. What caught my attention with Kris' shop was her slogan, "Quality Fabric at Affordable Prices!" This is definitely what I'm looking for when I purchase fabric and I'm sure most of you are, too. Fabric ala Carte carries many high quality fabrics from top manufacturers at $5/yard or less.

Fabric ala Carte carries a wide range of fabric including fat quarters, 1/2 yard bundles, yard bundles, strips, squares, & tumblers for quilt projects, upcycled fabric, and much more. Kris can die-cut 5" charms, 2.5" wide strips, and 6.5" tall tumbler blocks from any fabric in the shop. She also prides herself on fair S&H and fast shipping times. I can definitely vouch for the quick shipping times as I received my fabric only 3 days after Kris sent it!

Kris lists her fabrics in 1/2 yard increments to give her buyers more flexibility. This is something I love, but haven't seen much when shopping online for fabric.

I was pleased to review this adorable fat quarter from Fabric ala Carte. It's "Owls on Green," a Hoffman Fabrics print from the "Camp Fun Time" series.

I can already see this fabric making its way into these future projects.



There are 3 other fabrics in the "Camp Fun Time" series. You can purchase all four in a fat quarter, half yard, or full yard set. Or you can purchase a half yard of any of them for only $3 (plus s&h).

Fabric ala Carte also has many more fabrics to choose from. Here are just a few of my favorite fabrics from the shop.




Go check out all of the wonderful fabrics for yourself at Fabric ala Carte. If you make a purchase, please let Kris know that you found out about the shop at A Heart For Home.

Also be sure to check out Kris' other Etsy shop, Bon Bons & More, for a variety of handmade items including many quilted items. Be sure to take a look at these adorable little wallets.

Hello, thanks for putting me onto this fabulous shop. They've made my job easier already by having a fat quarter set of 4 Amy Butler prints in rose colourway
"DAISY CHAIN - ROSE "
DESIGNED BY AMY BUTLER FOR ROWAN FABRICS
I have 4 prints of this group in the rose colorway.
And you know what? Even if I don't win, the set of 4 fat quarters is only $7.50. Is that a typo ? THAT IS CHEAP - here in Australia FQs are generally $4 each or so.
Thanks anyway - nice site.
