Fab Fabric

In getting ready for the arrival of our baby girl I have been looking for just the right fabrics and finishes for our nursery. Over the weekend BF and i went to Dallas and did a little fabric shopping.

We started at Joann Fabrics because they have a wonderful selection of designer fabrics and they are currently on sale for 50% off! I came up with four different color schemes in the hopes of trying to find a gender neutral one. Even though we are having a sweet little girl I thought it would be nice to be able to reuse the bedding for future babies regardless of the sex.

Here are the four options that I came up with:

Option 1-

Option 2 -

Option 3 -

Option 4 -

Option 5 -

I loved all of the options. No really, I stared unblinking at these options for way too long. Then I picked them all up and carried them around for way too long. After wandering around, we found some incredible steals that all complimented Option 5 perfectly. Isn't it funny that with all of the gender neutral options I picked the one that is not? Bloop bloop.

Here is a larger photo of the bold print. It will be used for floor length curtains and a couple of floor pillows. The gray T fabric will be used on the bumpers and for a lumbar pillow to throw on the chair.

Here are all the fabulous fabrics that we found to coordinate. It looks like a lot of busy patterns but you have to remember that the bumpers and bed skirt are fairly small and don't show all that much, so have fun with pattern. We found the coordinating magenta cotton fabric on clearance for $4.50! We are going to use it for the reverse sides of the bumpers, all of the pillows and piping on the bumpers and pillows.

We can't wait to get this nursery rolling and I will share every step with you.

Stay tuned.
