Fabric

Pin It Now!

I recently found a great online fabric store! It's called Fabric Guru. Some of their fabrics are sold by the yard but the great deals seem to be on the buy it "by the piece" items. I got 9 yards of this fabric for $45. I'm either going to use it for drapes or to cover two tufted slipper chairs I found on the side of the road.

You and my sister would get along wonderfully. She too finds things on the side of the road, and loves fabric and can actually sew and sew really well.

That's a great price ! It would cost twice that at Jo~Ann's

DEAR CINDY,
THAT IS SUCH BEAUTIFUL, SOFT MATERIAL.
SO VERY PRETTY....IT WOULD MAKE BEAUTIFUL DRAPES AND MAYBE IT COULD HAVE ENOUGH LEFT OVER TO MAKE SOME THROW PILLOWS FOR YOUR COUCH.
THE CHAIRS WOULD ALSO LOOK BEAUTIFULLY COVERED IN IT......MAYBE YOU COULD DO CURTAINS, THROW PILLOWS AND AN OTTAMAN WITH BEAUTIFUL FRINGE
HUGS

Love the fabric and thanks for the tip. I love fabric too. I am tea dying some this morning.
Also found a desk on the side of the road today. I'm going to paint it and sell it on Craigslist. Any way you go with it will be beautiful.
Smiles,

This fabric looks like it was made especially for you! It is beautful and will look so good in your house. I think drapes would be gorgeous and throw pillows for your new couch. I'm sure that whatever you decide to do with it will be perfect!

Hi Cindy!
The fabric is very pretty and feminine.
I stopped by an out-of-town petshop today and saw they had society finches (brown and white markings, like yours). The only thing that stopped me from getting them was the fact that I don't have a cage yet:)

That is so good to know. We just don't have any fabric bargains around here. I'm always wondering where to find it.

Cindy, The fabric has a very soft rich look to it. I think it is going to look beautiful whatever you decide to do with it. You can't beat the price either!
