Oh joy... I got some gorgeous fabric

What a great trip to Fabricland! I went yesterday with my sewing buddy Thelma - she's my sewing guru whose helped me actually develop some sewing skills... Well enough to make a few easy breasy projects!

Fabricland had a sale for members only which totally worked in my favour! I needed a bunch of outdoor fabric for my 4 metal chairs that I'm updating. The latest issue of Style at Home had a photo that totally gave me a vision for this update. I'll post a photo later of my update inspiration.

Some of the outdoor fabric was on a better sale than others but still pretty darn cheap considering. They either had buy 1 metre and get 1 metre for free or buy 1 metre and get 2 metres for free. And they had so many great fabric options available!

I liked these fabrics but I wanted something more graphic and only a 2 colour design with no gradients...

I loved these especially the turquoise version of this design...

More funky fabric! The yellow was a bit too busy...

The green Damask-type design was super intriguing...

I ended up getting the black with the geometric pattern. I think this fabric would work well with the metal chairs - the colour would make the chairs look very sophisticated and I like the idea of using a design with straight lines to balance out the curves in the metal chair.

Now I need to transport the 3 other chairs from Gibsons to North Vancouver. I wish I had space for these because they're going to look beautiful when I'm done!
