Have you ever been in the situation where you are trying to design a room and you know exactly the fabric you need to complete a certain project, but the fabric doesn't actually exist?
I have found myself in this situation with the Princess' bedroom. I knew exactly what I wanted. I searched high and low. I looked in multiple fabric stores, I searched all over the internet. I can't believe it doesn't exist somewhere, but it doesn't.
So I decided to try out this website that I heard about early on in my blogging experience, put on my must-try list, but never actually got around to trying. And at this point, I want to tell you all that I am not affiliated with this website nor are they compensating me in any way for this post. I just want to tell you all about a great little tool for DIY decorators. Spoonflower.com. Love it. At Spoonflower.com you can actually create and purchase your own fabric. And there's no minimum yardage requirement. Seriously.
So I set to work designing exactly the fabric I wanted for the Princess' bedroom. But then, I admit, I got a little bit carried away. It's so fun! I designed a bunch of different fabrics...in a bunch of different colorways. And then I had a dilemma, because I looooved them all. So I picked my favorite two patterns for her room and had samples printed. And I love them both. And she loves them both. And sheesh! I could have at least pressed them before I took the photos, huh?
We actually decided, however, to reverse the colorway on one of them and use it. But, because I'm a tease, I'm not going to tell you which one. You'll just have to wait and see. I just know you're all on pins and needles now, right? Oh, and that orange one? I have some fun plans for it as well!
The only problem is, now that I have discovered how easy it is to design fabric at Spoonflower, my mind is spinning with projects that I can design my own fabric for. My to-do list is growing by the second. Lol!
Have a great day, my lovelies~
