The Wonderful World of Fabric

Wednesday, January 2nd, 2013

Fabric is like an artist’s tool. It starts out as a sheet of color that can develop into innumerable creations. From clothing, to furniture coverings, to … baby bedding! The designs are endless!

At Carousel Designs, we offer more than 300 fabrics by for sale by the yard. Because we allow our customers the option of using any of our fabrics to customize their baby bedding, the fabrics by the yard can also be used in your custom bedding.

This provides a lot of room for creativity. You can use a fabric you love in your little one’s bedding and purchase fabric to create matching accents in the nursery. If you have sewing skills, or want to experiment with patterns, you could even make a matching outfit. Then you’ll see the fabric you love outside the home.

 

Some fabrics we could suggest are Anna’s Zoo, Juliet Damask, and Windy Day. These are all so playful, and they are all available in our designed collections. But these only scratch the surface of the variety of patterns and colors we offer.

Even if you’re not expecting or designing a nursery, you can take advantage of our wide selection of fabric by the yard for any of your sewing and design projects.

My mother absolutely loved the Windy Day fabric, so she ordered the fabric by the yard to use as a tablecloth. It looks really cute! I’ve had my eye on the Sightseeing Toile which has light-hearted drawings of famous places to see from all around the world. I thought this would be fun to use to recover the seat on the desk chair in my home office.

With hundreds of fabrics, you have plenty to choose from. Thinking of a project now? Why not purchase fabric swatches of a few to get the artistic juices flowing. Fabric swatches are an actual sample of the fabric, so you can touch and feel the texture and mix and match the patterns and colors. Let the fun begin!
