You may have seen companies that will print the fabric of your own design on various types of fabric. And they usually also have other's designs that you can simply choose from. Well, there is a new company out there called My Fabric Designs and they sent us one yard of basic cotton woven fabric. My Fabric Designs actually has 26 types of fabrics ranging from voile, to knits, pant weights! Just think of the coordinating outfits you could make using the same print on different fabric types. The price of these custom fabrics are not inexpensive but the designs are quite unique and you have so many options to make sure it is the perfect fabric for a special project.
I had my daughter search through the site and pick the print, since I would be sewing it for her. There were a TON to choose from! I would have had a horrible time picking one. There were all sorts of different styles so I am sure you all will something that appeals to you. (And, in case you are considering checking out My Fabric Designs' selection, make sure you get to the bottom of this post because we have a coupon code and a give away!)
She picked a print with many different nautical compasses with shades of greens and blues. When it arrived, I washed it up to see what it was like. It did shrink a little, but not bad for a cotton and I still had over 35 inches with 54 inches wide.
It had such a large bold design, I thought it would be good to not cut it up to much and find a pattern that would allow it to simply shine. After I looked a bit online, I realized I already owned the right pattern but had yet to sew it.
|yes, her eyes are closed ... and they were in EVERY picture. ugh.|
