Back to my shopping trip, I was on the look out for fabric that would make excellent outdoor pillows and possibly a cute table runner for our outdoor dining set. We have a pretty good size patio, so I really want to layer in many shades of color to make the space feel inviting and us.
I came home with three yards of fabric. I've always loved the classic look of Pottery Barn's classic stripe fabric. The thought of spending $29 bucks for one outdoor pillow, is something that I could never do!
Instead I bought a yard of striped green fabric for only $ 9.99 a yard. I can easily make two pillows with a yard of fabric. The fabric I bought it from Premier Prints, you can buy it online at fabric.com for a dollar less a yard. I was OK with spending a buck more, since the fabric came home with me that day. I didn't see any other fabric I just had to have for pillows, so I popped into the clearance section.
They had a huge selection of clearance fabric crammed into a room all starting at $4 bucks and below. I was going to take a picture, but the space was very badly lit! I was able to unearth some pretty fabric with an interesting print. I knew instantly it would make the perfect table runner since it a color scheme of browns, blues and greens. I only paid $ 3.99 per yard! The fabric is also from Premier Prints and is called Elizabeth you can buy it here online for $ 11.99 a yard. The fabric is super heavy duty, I'm shocked its not outdoor fabric. I really like the colors and the print!
Now that I shared what I bought, its time to share all the other pretty fabric I saw. I loved all this pretty floral fabrics!
I love all the pink fabric! Do you recognize the pretty modern pink on pink floral print? If memory serves me correctly, its Thomas Paul / Duralee Fabric. Its pretty pricey and was a bargain at Home Fabrics. I think they were selling it for $ 6.99 per yard.
Lastly, my heart skipped a beat, when I saw Serena & Lily fabric!! I was speechless they had a whole bolt of fabric. The fabric is called Coral Diamond and its so pretty. Guess how much S&L sells this fabric? $ 50 bucks yard! Home Fabrics was selling the fabric for only $ 6.99 a yard, unbelievable!
Here's a link for the Serena & Lily fabric. Pretty huh!
I'm still trying to figure a way to incorporate some pink in my home, which three boys at home four if you count Mojo it can be hard to add a little pink, lol :)
I'm going to head back to the fabric store this weekend and look around some more. I got there late and only had a 20 mins to look around. Maybe I'll discover some more Serena and Lily fabric.....insert evil laugh!
