Let’s hear from the owner, Heather, on what makes her shop so unique:

Girl Charlee Fabrics carries high quality, unique knit fabrics at the lowest prices.  We specialize in hard to find knit prints and solids, along with our famous collection of jersey chevron prints in new color offerings seasonal, and other Girl Charlee Signature designed knits.  Girl Charlee also carries e-sewing patterns from select indie designers suitable for use with knit fabrics.

My favorite thing about Girl Charlee are the prints–a few of my favorites are pictured below. Of course they carry a lovely range of solid knit fabric too,  but good knit prints are hard to find.

I am usually pretty nervous about ordering fabric online. So I was happy to discover that Girl Charlee not only gives you the fiber content and width of a fabric, but also includes the amount the fabric stretches and how much it weighs. If you are newer to sewing knits, I would start with medium weight knits. Their lightweight fabrics are lovely and tissue-y, but can be tricky to sew.

    Oooh – I love the brown and red floral on orange. I’m so glad to read about this shop. I want to sew more with knits but finding good quality fabric with nice prints has been a struggle. Definitely bookmarking this one… xo

    The wildlife collection is by far my favorite GirlCharlee fabric. I’ve made a dress and a cowl neck sweater from the bunnies, and the christmas reindeer fabric…so many complements! Love, love, Love!

    Ugh – the thing about Girl Charlee is that everytime I go to their site, I can never decide what to buy because there is SO MUCH GOOD STUFF.  So then I end up never pulling the trigger.  I like that red vines fabric – I’d never seen that before.  But the Black Foil Dots on Mauve Ponte de Roma Fabric sounds fascinating and I’ve heard good things about that kind of fabric.  Thanks for the giveaway!

    I don’t think I can choose just one! I do like the fox family, but then I like the fairisle reindeer and then there’s the red dragonflies. Which one’s best, only one way to find out….. FIGHT!!!! (Harry Hill reference – possibly meaningless to most people)

    Awhile back I bought this great mustard tonal stripe that reminds me of Matilda Jane fabric that I have been hoarding. I think I just need to cut into it and make some ruffle pants for my daughter before she gets too big to want to wear mama-made stuff.

    I used the Heather Charcoal Gray Solid Cotton Spandex Knit to make my daughter a raglan shirt. She wears it for days on end. Even takes it out of the dirty laundry to sneak it on. It’s super soft. I need to get more. That shirt is the most worn item of clothing I’ve ever made for her. If I win, I will be ordering a few more yards. Thanks!

    There was a charcoal fabric with white (or cream – I can’t remember exactly) lace butterflies that was available in the fall but was out of stock when I finally was able to place my order. 🙁 That one has been my favorite so far.

  8. Jane

    I’ve always been a little intimidated by knit fabrics, but I am SO inspired by these gorgeous patterns, how to ever choose!
    I have two gorgeous nieces who love bright colours, particularly ‘coral’ and ‘teal’ although the younger ones choices are very influenced by her older sister’s preferences! It would be fun to make them something for their upcoming birthdays!

    I’ve purchased several times from Girl Charlee and LOVE the super soft super cute fabrics!  I love knits and they have wonderful prints!  There is one in particular that is gray with these adorable silver glittery dots that make the cutest skirts.   They have great bargain bags as well, if you can snag one before they sell out!

    I don’t know the actual name of the fabric, but I bought a yard a couple months ago of a grey with brown deer on it, and it is my absolute FAV! And I’m out of it (booooo ), so I hope you reprint it again in the future (yeaaaah! )

    Thank you for always having such lovely designs to choose from <3
