Oh My Fabric!!!

Natalie here.
I went to JoAnn’s yesterday to buy some fabric for a tablecloth, and I found this lovely Gem! It was on a sale rack for $5 a yard, and there was only 2 yds. Not enough for my table cloth (need 3 yds), but can’t you just imagine how awesome a table setting you could have with a decorative base like this???? This color combination is so IN for me right now, and the sequins!!!! It makes me smile to look at it! (The second one I took with a flash, so you could see the sheen in it.)
Maybe I need to do what Teri did and make some cards using this as my inspiration. Oh, and obviously I did buy it, but I don’t yet know what I’m going to make with it. I don’t have a room in my house with orange and turquoise. Plenty of brown…. but I don’t think I could incorporate this. If I could, wouldn’t it make a cute curtain for a small window, or a few throw pillows for a bed???

Maybe a skirt???? I’m going to hang onto it until I’m positive I have the right idea. I’ll keep any scraps to stitch onto some cards. The colors are a bit Fall, so maybe by then I’ll have scraps for cards.

Ooooooooh Fun!!

The fabric I settled on for the tablecloth…. Well, I had to buy two because I couldn’t decide and it was on sale for $3 a yard. They are both brown, one is kind of an olive brown, and one is a warm caramel brown, they are both a fun-to-touch type of faux suede. Strange for a table cloth I know, but it has this sheen to it, and it will be beautiful.
Since the room with the table has lots of olive tones, I think I’ll use that one and use the other for some pillows.

This is fun fabric! I love to change my table cover all of the time...holidays, seasons, and just for fun. When I don't have enough for the entire tablecloth, I make an "overlay" type of cloth. My table is a slight rectangle, so I make a 54" x 54" or 60" x 60" square and lay it over my off white tablecloth at an angle.
