Happy Friday everyone! I cannot believe it is Friday already. I am putting the final touches on my patio for the Patio Style Challenge this weekend.
I posted the other day about my favorite outdoor pillows. Today, I wanted to share with you my favorite sources for outdoor fabric. If you can sew, you can save a ton of money by making your own pillows. Sewing a basic pillow is very easy and there are a ton of easy tutorials on You Tube and Pinterest.
I used to think I could not learn to sew, but I am living proof that even a novice can learn. I had a really bad experience taking sewing lessons from this mean, Tiger mom instructor that totally turned me off. It was not until my sweet mother-in-law took me under her wing, that I realized how simple it can be.
So, without further ado, here are my favorite sources for outdoor fabric. Most of the selections are around $9 a yard, which is so affordable!!
My first go to is Fabric Guru. They have an amazing selection and you can sort by color. Their shipping is also only $4.99 for any size order. Here are some of my favorites:
Next up is Fabric.com. They also have a great selection and shipping is free on orders over $35. My sweet friend Tamara over at Provident Home Design, had a great tip for shopping with them. If her order is under $35, she will search on Amazon because Fabric.com also sells many of their fabrics there and the shipping is only $2.00. Here are some of my favorite picks from Fabric.com
Joann is one of my go-to sources. They have a really good selection both in store and online, but I really like the fact I can go into the store and see the fabric for myself. One of my tips for buying fabric online is to Google the fabric name. Often times you can find a product or photo where the fabric is used in a home, so you can get a better feel for the pattern and actual color. Here are my favorite picks from Joann (pretty nice for a craft store!)
Finally, here are my picks for outdoor fabric with orange incorporated. My sweet aunt is wanting to add some outdoor pillows to her lovely outdoor living space and she is a big fan of orange. All of these patterns are from Fabric Guru!
Do you have a go-to source for fabric or outdoor fabric? Do tell in the comments. I am always on the lookout for new sources. With a little DIY prowess you can really score big and make affordable pillows for your outdoor living areas.
