Did I speak too soon in my post yesterday? I may have. I gave so much praise to fabric.com and then ended up stumbling across Hawthorne Threads. I spent many an hour last night - when I should have been sleeping - searching their extensive collection of pretty prints that I hadn't seen elsewhere. Here's a small sampling of some of their fun fabrics. Again, many of these come in colorways other than the ones I'm copying here:
First off, I had never heard of Alexander Henry fabrics before, but I loooooove the items in his new collection, which apparently is arriving in late March 2013. If you're a fan of this Scalamandre zebra wallpaper and fabric...
... but can't afford it because, like me, you're not massively wealthy, then Alexander Henry's new Africa collection is a pretty good facsimile:
I am developing a newfound love of zebras and really want to use one of these fabrics in my house. At first I was worried it would be overkill, but then I thought, who cares? Either that hot pink or that chartreuse zebra head fabric MUST be used somewhere. It is too awesome.
Generally I'm not a huge fan of Amy Butler, but I think she really hit it out of the park with her latest Alchemy Collections. Even better, these seem to run around $14/yard, so definitely within a budget. The other colorways are awesome, too, but this is just a little taste:
A few others that struck my fancy:
Joel Dewberry's Pristine Poppy in Midnight - $13.95/yard
Domestic Cat in Aqua - no price yet; arriving early April 2013
Matilda in Brandy - $6.99/yard
