How was your weekend? Did you do something fun, work on a project, or both?
HH and I took a quick trip to visit my parents over the weekend. It was so nice…and relaxing…and therapeutic. Isn’t that what time with family is all about? While we drove, I was able to hand-sew the closure for a new pillow I made for HH last week.
I’ll publish the tutorial tomorrow for sewing brush fringe into a pillow. For today, I’d like to share some recently discovered resources for your home decor projects.
In late July, I visited Brick House Fabrics* to check out their site. I found some beautiful fabrics to use for upcoming projects. (I contacted them about advertising on my site. You may have noticed their ad in my sidebar.)
My choice that day was a fabric I knew HH or any other pheasant hunter would like. Isn’t this toile print with pheasants and hunting dogs wonderful? 🙂
I received my fabric in three days. Three! There’s no extra charge for that quick delivery, either. That’s just their regular delivery process. An employee pulls the fabrics and ships them, usually the same day you order. I received emails confirming my order and when it shipped – along with an expected delivery date.
Get this: the email is from a real person. Your order processor clearly provides their name so you can contact them with any questions you have. Isn’t that level of customer service amazing – and pro-active?
When ordering, please note that some fabrics come in specified cut lengths. The toile I ordered is sold in one-yard blocks, which is perfect for pillows and chair cushions.
I was very pleased with the quality of the pheasant blue toile that I found under Brick House Fabrics’ lodge and cabin style in their sidebar.
Within days, I ordered a second choice (can hardly wait to do that project). Same fast delivery, same quality. Isn’t it nice when something is easy for a change? Click their ad to the right or here** if you’d like to check out their many choices of fabrics. Don’t forget to check out their discount fabrics, too.
Speaking of discount, Brick House Fabrics posts specials on their Facebook page, so “Like” their page and get those notifications. This is the fabric they posted yesterday.
I have a friend in Georgia who made kitchen curtains using this fabric. Her beautiful kitchen was featured in Southern Living Magazine that year, and her window treatments were a star!
Another discovery last week is this pillow filler at Wal-Mart. It is the best of all types I’ve used – and at a great price for making your own pillow inserts!
UPDATE August, 2015: I came back to show you my Pillowcubes review post. They are now my favorite inserts – even ranking over home-made.
Thank you for visiting. I hope these resources inspire you and help you with your home decor DIY projects! Please follow me through email or any other type of social media. Scroll to the top of my page for the links.
