Last weekend, I had to go to my local fabric store to pick up embroidery thread for some pillows I’m having made. Since that wasn’t very exciting, I also wandered up and down the fabric aisles and snapped some pictures of a few that caught my eye. . .
I love this bold ikat. It came in several colors and was just $12.98/yard. In fact, I have a sample of the yellow currently hanging in our kitchen that’s under serious consideration.
I thought this map fabric could be really cool covering a big bulletin board . . .
Or, used on a ready-made shade. . . (Like the ones I blogged about here.)
I also saw a couple of fabrics that could make great artwork. Like this architectural one:

More ikat. . .

I also spotted some great outdoor fabrics. I’m already plotting new pillows for our patio next summer:
And, for those who are wondering, I went shopping for fabrics here. It’s not my absolute favorite place to go, but the prices lure me in. If you’re looking for some online sources for fabrics, Kate at Centsational Girl recently put together a great list here.
What about you? Any great fabric finds lately?
