Fabric Sources Uno

I absolutely love fabrics, they have such an amazing impact in rooms. Here are some of my beloved fabric sources online and in store. I should warn you this might end up being a long post, but get ready for some pretty prints.  


As you know I love buying fabric from Calico Corners, I made lumbar pillows, recovered a bench and more with their fabric. I also love that they ship all their fabric for free and and also sell and small quality of fabric in store.

High Heeled Foot in the Door, recently posted about them on her blog and gave us a peek inside their store.

Silly me got tired last night putting all these pretty samples together from their store (hence they are unnumbered) It was so hard to choose just four fabrics so showcase! I would love to sew some large pillows for a settee with the bird cage print or sew some drapes for French doors! Maybe one day.Just check out their site to view more fabrics. 


Fabric Tips


Material type: Always read the information about the fabric: Is it light weight? Good for drapes and pillows? Or better suited for a craft project? or upholstery? 


Prices: To find the best price on fabric, always try and find out who the manufacturer of the fabric is. For instance, is the Fabric made by Waverly or Duralee. That way you can Google the name of the manufacturer along with the fabric name and hopefully find the lowest price. I recently scored Thomas Paul fabric for $ 10.00 for 3/4 or a yard at Calico Corners, I saw the same fabric online for $ 50.00 per yard. 


I'll be writing another post regarding 'Fabric Sources Dos' soon. Where are your go to fabric shopping sources? Scored any pretty prints recently? I'd love to hear!
