Lushing and Gushing over Fabrics


One thing I barely DIY is anything using fabric and/or sewing.  Even if I were to make a simple envelope style pillow cover I’d be patting myself on the back more than had I just built a new deck or something.

However, a recent project I’m working on DID have me searching for a new fabric and one of my favorite websites for fabrics is SpoonFlower.com.  They have such a variety of fabrics, anything for any project.  While I browsing I came across a few patterns and color schemes I would LOVEEEE to be able to use someday, but I never would.  They’re too bold, too exciting, and too wonderful for my style.  Instead I’ll just pin them onto a I wish board and dream that someday I’ll do more in my home than neutrals and solids.

I love the colors, the patterns, the patterns within patterns.  It’s all so exciting and would so great in a young girls room or a tween I think!

I think this one appeals to me because my recent obsession with the organic leggings that are popular for kids.  I’d totally buy a pair of leggings made of these for her!

This one screams to me…calls my name…pulls my heart…turns me into a puddle.  I picture this one as a big accent piece in a fancy living room with bold accent colors and gold trimmed furniture.

Again, not sure why this one appeals to me.  Again, I can picture them as leggings.  But I still wouldn’t be able to wear them… too bold.  But I know many fashionable ladies that could ROCK this as leggings.

I am not sure even how or where I’d use this fabric, but I do love it.  Perhaps as a headband for baby girl, or maybe as the top part of the current trending moccasins.

Do you like any of these??? Am I weird?  Sometimes I really wish my d├ęcor style was bold enough to use colors and patterns like these.  Then sometimes I like the calming nature of neutrals and solids…feels comfortable, homey, calming.

I asked the other day which fabric you’d pick for an accent piece of furniture: 1, 2, 3 or 4 top to bottom:

Hands down 3 and 4 were chosen.  And this time I did it – I went with something a little more “fun” for my piece of furniture, I brought home #3  ….. I’m still waiting on a few more items to finish the piece so no reveals yet! But soon!!

  1. The one titled The Doctor is because it's T.A.R.D.I.S's and sonic screwdrivers in the background.

    Don't ask me how I know this....*adjusts fez and bow tie*
