Elsie's New Duds!
The feeling of making a little headway made we want to get going on some of the more fun decorating elements of this reconstruction, aka FABRIC SHOPPING!!!
I had found a couple of prints I was interested in on Fabric.com but hadn't been able to find what I wanted in a heavy enough fabric to hold up as the covers for all the cushions.... until today!
I truly think the Lord was at work here. Sounds insane to say that God was providing fabric... but he totally was.
First I found this beauty in a cotton duck cloth for only $6/yard. "Oxygen Lipstick Dots" will be covering all the "bottom" cushions (or the ones you sit on.)
In the "You May Also Like" sidebar I found "Dandi Dot Lipstick" and yes... I did like. This one will be the back cushions (or the ones you sit against.)
Next came the curtain dilemma. "Pop Garden Daisy" was one of the first fabrics I liked for the camper as it incorporated all three main colours (teal, red, yellow) that I was using in one fabric. Initially I wanted it for the cushions but figured maybe it could work with the polka dots as the the curtains... I ran to the neighbours with my laptop and she gave me the stamp of approval.
However, when I went to order it I realized there were no yards in stock. Bummer. So then I checked at least 10 different websites including Heather Bailey's (the designer) own shop site - no. such. luck. Grrr. Back to searching I went, now determined to find another fabric that had all three colours in it. On Heather Bailey's website I found this beauty...
"Rose Bouquet Cream" Love it! I went back to the neighbour and she said it was even better than pop garden. She knows what to say... she's good like that :) Rose bouquet went in the basket!
While I was in the fabric mode I decided to treat myself to another favourite designer's fabric - Amy Butler. I've been in love with "Love: Teal Bliss" for a while now and so I added a few yards to my virtual shopping cart and hit "complete order"! I think I'll make Hanny a little dress from it and maybe something for myself :)
