I love This Fabric!

I love this fabric!  It has all of the colors of my decor.  When I was antiquing with Gretchen earlier this week, I saw this fabric under a pile of stuff.  It is about a yard and a half and cost $8.00.

I have searched online for more of it, but can not find anymore.

Such a shame because it looks great with this couch...



This cheetah chair...



This red chair in the living room...


And it even looks good in the master bedroom!




I have loved this green chair for 10 years....but it really didn't go with my yellow toile.  It is comfy and a PETITE recliner - that somehow doesn't look like a recliner.  Somehow with this new fabric added to the room (curtains?) it looks good.  The prints on the floor ready to hang seem to match and the vintage oil painting over the chest looks good with it too.

Since I can't find any more of this fabric, I will probably use it for throw pillows in the great room.  But now I am keeping my eye out for something like this to make curtains for our bedroom.
(edited to add:  A few of you have suggested looking on the salvage edge for the name and then looking on line.  The salvage edge does give the manufacturer - Bloomcraft, but not the pattern name or number.  When I search Bloomcraft I find all kinds of fabric stores, but after looking at all of their patterns, I can't find it.)
(edited again to add:  I didn't want to recover the chair with the fabric, but make curtains with it, which would make the chair look like it belongs in the room.)
And now the project list has one more item added....
Welcome Home,
Penny

Penny, what does the writing say on the selvage? I can keep an eye out for you if I know who makes this particular fabric.

Cathy said...

Don't you hate it when that happens? You find the perfect fabric and...

It really is perfect in your great room! I HOPE you can find some more!

Enjoy!
Cathy

Oh Penny! I LOVE it too!!!! It's so rich and vibrant!

Julie Harward said...

Yes, those project list just keep on growing don't they?! I LOVE this material and cannot wait to see it made into throw pillows! It is just perfect for every place too. How exciting for you! Come say hi :D

Penny, that is some gorgeous fabric. Have you searched on line, too. It is a shame you can't find more.

Mimi said...

Here I thought I was the only one to pick out a hard to find or discontinued print! Hope you are able to find a supplier.

Heidi said...

Hi Penny,
That is nice fabric. Why don't you use it with some others in coordinating prints to recover your chair. Is there enough to just cover the top of the cushion and the front side of the back of the chair? I think it would be nice with a check or other two-toned fabric. That would stretch it out a bit anyway, something to ponder. Or not!
Not that you asked for my idea, but still just had to share that thought.
Have a great long weekend,
XO

Lovely, lovely...been playing catch up with you since Ive been out in the garden and not at the computer...you've been very busy and the house is looking fantastic. I loved this material, too...such a shame you can't find more of it! Have you tried contacting any of the major furniture builders in North Carolina? They might be able to help you out as to suppliers and such.

Good luck with the curtain project. I'm sure that the inspiration from this remnant will help you find the perfect fabric for those windows!

I hope you can find some more of this fabric. I hate it when you find something you love and then can't get enough of it. Good luck with your search. It does look great with everything you already have. Love & blessings from NC!

Angie said...

That is a beautiful pattern! It does go so well with all your stuff. I bet you can find something similar you'll like too since you need more.

Vintage Sassy said...

Penny, what if you used the fabric as an accent border on plain curtains and then made a pillow out of it too for your chair or the bed. Just a thought.

The Decorating Diaries said...

I love that fabric, too!

Merrie said...

Oh Penny, that is lovely fabric. It looks so beautiful with the prints sitting on the floor next to the chair too. I hope you can find more of it!

Vee said...

I can see why you love it so. Very nice. Can you contact Bloomcraft directly? Go to the top...yes, the president of the company. It usually works quite well. Best of luck with it!

Oh how I would love my two wing chairs covered in that fabric! BEAUTIFUL, Penny!
I hope you can find more of it.
Hugs,

Bella said...

That fabric is beautiful. And it does go perfectly in your home. If you could find something similar to make curtains out of, that would really pull the bedroom together, along with those prints. Such a shame you can't locate more of it. Looks like you could use it everywhere.

Brenda Leyland said...

I can see why you'd be looking for more of that wonderful fabric. I LOVE the colours.

Here's wishing you success in your search for more!

Beverly said...

Do you have enough to make valances, and then choose another fabric as a companion to complete the window treatment?

dobco said...

Penny to get the most out of fabric, make the backs of your pillows with another fabric. You can get twice as many that way! Maybe you will come across it sometime. I see why you love it!

Lisa ~ A Cottage to Me said...

I'm not necessarily a sewer, but I was going to suggest what Beverly did. If you have enough to put as part of your curtain detail, that would look great. Either as a valance or the topper to a panel or something!

Damaris said...

That fabric is JUST BEAUTIFUL!! I hope you find more!! If not, PILLOWS!! XXOO

Pamela said...

That is super pretty fabric Penny! I will keep my eye out for it.

Kathleen Grace said...

It's beautiful Penny. Without a pattern name or number I am afraid finding more would be a needle in a haystack! You got a great deal though and it will make lovely pillows:>)

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Beautiful fabric, Penny! I was going to say pillows ~ this way you can move it around to the different rooms and pieces of furniture you like it on!

Rhondi said...

I had our 2 wing chairs covered in fabric very similar to that years ago and seeing it brought back memories of when I used all those rich colors in our home. Sure hope you can find some more of it.

It is gorgeous fabric! I think it'll look great in your bedroom (cute chair btw had no idea it was a recliner)!
