{How To} Find Amazing Fabric

All posts may contain affiliate links.

Ever wonder where some designers find such amazing fabrics?

I do! I am in love with fabric.  My collection is sometimes considered a borderline hoarding addiction.  And don’t laugh but it has also been said that “at times I am in need of an intervention”.

I like to look to the past for fabric.  Many of my most prized fabrics have been found during the wee hours of estate sale shopping.

Something about that thrill of the find, that get’s me every time.

Some of my favorite fabrics to use are:
  • table linens
  • drapes
  • handkerchief
  • bed sheets
  • chenille bedspreads
The following is a collections of fun fabrics I found while getting caught up on Etsy.  It’s amazing how I can just get “lost” on there.
  1. Three Plush Hearts Chenille Bedspread by ShabbyCottageGarden on Etsy
  2. Vera Neumann Napkins by AZCindy on Etsy
  3. Assortment of Chenille Bedspreads by CherryBlossomQuilts on Etsy
  4. Assortment of bed sheets by Fiftieshousewivessew on Etsy
  5. Bundle of bed sheets by Shabby Sheets on Etsy
  6.  Napkins by A Farm House In France on Etsy
  7. Rare Rose Pink Pops Chenilee Bedspread ShabbyCottageGarden on Etsy
Honestly, there are so many options out on the market – the possibilities are endless!
Where do you find your stash?

Happy Crafting!

    Hi Heather, I love Vintage Linens and Chenille and have such fun designing with them. My Chenille addiction started over 12 years ago and that’s how I got started sharing chenille fabric cuts from my collection to designers on EBAy and Etsy. I love the end result of Chenille Patchwork Quilts and Pillows. “Heirloom Eye Candy” Thanks for featuring a few of my Chenille Quilting Cuts on your blog. Sincerely, Cheryl
