All Fabric, All The Time - Just What I (Don't) Need!



A week or so ago someone blogged about True Up, a blog just about fabric. There is a swatch of the day and links to find it. On-line fabric shops are featured. The About section tells us that "it's about fabric for fabric's sake." I've really enjoyed it - enjoyed it enough so far that I made the purchases above. This Pink Buffet by Alexander Henry was featured, said to be on sale at jcaroline creative, and so I went over. I fell for the pink buffet right away and while looking around saw the "small flowers on gold." I thought the gold with turquoise will be a good addition to my studio office, pillows or something. At $6.00 a yard, both were a great deal.

Actually, I've been reading jcaroline's blog for a few weeks. She has very fun ideas, and her fabric designs are so bold and bright. Check out the $3.00 chair she reupholstered. I wish I had the courage to try reupholstering myself like she does- at least slip covering. I have a wing chair and matching ottoman just waiting to be covered, but I haven't been able to decide what to do. There is an affordable upholstery guy in my town whom my friends have used. Maybe I can get some of her fabrics and show the photos so he will know the look I'm going for.

You can upholster! Upholstering a sofa was my first real sewing project -- no joke. And you are so talented, you will have no problems. Love that pink buffet. :)
