fabric heaven


thanks to finnish d*s reader reka i found the carrie bradshaw fabric! now i need to find a place that has my color and enough yardage for bedroom curtains. it's vintage and pricey so this should be a task. anyway, while assuming it might be an ikea pattern as most people suggested i was browing ikea's fabrics and was LOVING them (the linen diamonds- so cool). so many great designs. check out above and below for some fantastic options. they're not available online so you'll have to snag them at a store near you (check for availability first) but some of them are fantastic and really worth a trip to what i like to call the swedish version of hell. tip: don't spend more than an hour in there, it starts to suck away your will to live. ac can testify, i go into ikea mode and am one comment away from a breakdown at any given point. enjoy!

i'm always happily surprised by how mice the ikea fabric is, both in patterns and the material itself. even better, it's so ridiculously affordable

i needed 12 yards of plain beige linen to make some slipcovers. here at the fabric store in park slope it was $18 a yard. in ikea paramus it was $6 a yard.

good stuff. and you get to eat the meatballs
