If you're feeling the need to sew, here are a few sites worth checking out!
This is one of my favorites-- because they have everything! They also have great prices and super fast shipping-- I usually receive my order in 3 business days... right to my front door! The one drawback... paying for shipping and duty :) However, I can usually find a 20% off coupon online-- this usually makes up for the extra shipping costs. And, if you live where I do, you can always drive across the border for pick up :)
When both kids are napping (like they are right now... heaven!) I love to peruse this site to look at all the new arrivals. I thought I might as well share some of my favorites while I'm at it!
Here are a few of my favorite contemporary selections:
Love yellow. It's one of my favorite accent colors.
Those birds are adorable.
This fabric would make killer roman shades in a little boy's room.
This would make great throw pillows in a room that needs a pick me up.
Like this design-- I have a similar fabric in my kitchen at the moment. It makes me feel happy as I cook...
And here are a few more subdued/traditional choices...
This is my tree skirt fabric. Yes, I chose the traditional option. Thank you for all of your feedback!
It's on sale for 6.99 a yard. wow.
When I saw this one I thought it would make a really great shower curtain in a bathroom of any color.
The blues in this one are so pretty. I could design a whole room around the colors in this fabric.
Now, on to my next favorite site... Tonic Living
They have awesome retro inspired prints for great prices-- everything is around $10 a meter. Here's what I like about Tonic Living:
- they are a Canadian based company (everything's shipped out of Ontario)
- prices are amazing
- they have $1 samples-- not teeny tiny samples-- really big ones (I've even framed a couple of the samples for cheap inexpensive art for the kid's rooms-- they're that big!)
- I can always find a coupon code to use for at least 10% off by searching online.
Some drawbacks-- they don't ship as fast as fabric.com. They don't have a huge selection. Some of their fabrics have been more lightweight than I had anticipated... that's where pre-ordering the samples comes in handy!
And, here are some of my current favorites:
Again, love the yellow. So fun and bright!
Pretty dramatic, but pretty awesome.
I'm considering this one for Caleb's room. He would LOVE it.
Every room needs a bit of black. Throw pillows anyone?
This would be adorable in a little girl's room.
And, here are a few other sites that I'm gonna try one day. I've had friends/family order fabric from these sites and have had positive experiences.
If you're interested in making baby blankets, check this site out! They've got anything and everything you could imagine.
Great source for inexpensive home decor fabrics. I like that you can shop by style/print or color. You'll notice that some of the other online stores carry certain lines of Premier's fabric. Shop around!
Well... that all I have for you today. Anyone else know of a really great place to shop for fabric? Please share!
Happy shopping everyone!
