Let's Go Shopping & A Giveaway-Schumacher's Chiang Mai Dragon


I love how some of my favorite designers and blogs mix all kinds of fabrics together.  It definitely is an art and one that I need to per-fect.  Fabric and color make such a dramatic change to a room and it totally fascinates me.  I love all kinds of color schemes and I love mixing fabrics.

A fellow blogger told me about a fabulous $2 Designer Fabric store at 19th Ave. and Thunderbird in Phx. if you live here.  Their regular store is called Home Fabrics and most of their fabrics are only $6.95 yd, and their selection is unreal, however finding the same fabric at $2yd is even better.   Before we get to the giveaway, let's take a tour.  This place is totally amazing. 

This place goes on for aisle after aisle - -











 I loved a lot of their fabulous black and white fabrics.


 I'm also into brown right now - -


 and they had some great patterns to choose from.


 I love animal prints and these were all well done.

Now if you stop in at their regular store - Home Fabrics at 32nd st. and Cactus, Phx - this greets you at the door.  They do custom work and this is just a tiny bit of what all they will make.  You choose your fabric and they will make it for you.  They have 25 stores across the country, so check your area and see if you have one.


 They also have rugs that are fabulous.  See that hexagon beige and cream rug down at the end.  That was on sale for $199 and it would look fabulous when my new floors are installed.  I may need to go buy it.


 Here are some more rugs in the background that are on sale for $99 and they show slipcovers and cushions that they will make.


 This shows all the different kind of headings they will do for custom drapes, bedding and cushions.

More samples of slipcovers for chairs and look at all those fabulous rugs that are only $99.

So what did I buy?  I'm working on some browns now, so I added these three to the mix.

I also couldn't resist this gorgeous black and white print.  

I had a great day shopping, and I spent $12.  Now that is what I call cheap fun.  I have not been compensated in any way, I just wanted to pass along a great deal.

NOW ONTO THE GIVEAWAY

I have coveted this fabric for a very long time.  It is Chiang Mai Dragon by Schumacher and it has the most fabulous colors in it.  (See that little dragon face at the bottom)  For some reason this is reading a little orange on my computer, however it is really red.  This is the Alabaster colorway and sells for $165 yd with a 2 yd minimum.  


I am offering enough pre-cut panels of the Chiang Mai Dragon to make 2 20x20 pillows and enough of the red scroll for 2 20x20 pillow

Here's a pic I found on Etsy of the Chiang Mai pillow without the dragon. This is for sale for $85 each.  


I am also including a floral piece to make 1 20x20 pillow and more red scroll.

If you are interested in these fabrics, just let me know in the comment section and I will announce a winner Friday the 17th.  Be sure there is an email so I can reach you.

Be sure to get all of your projects lined up for Inspire Me Tuesday.  Party goes live this afternoon at 3 PM CMT.  Can't wait to see you there.


I am joining the following parties:

  6. I soooo love reading your blog; there is always something so motivating that even if I have no projects going, I find one, lol. I love all those fabrics and would drool over having any of them. That red scroll with the floral (poppy?) piece would so fit into my color scheme in my family room! I know whoever the lucky recipient is will enjoy all these wonderful selections. What a wonderful store to have close by with such great selections. Thanks for sharing some sunshine this morning!

  8. I just love fabrics! So much potential! I grew up in a home where my mother and grandmother ran a draper and slipcover business. There were fabric samples everywhere. As a little girl, I would sit on the floor and play with the scraps, trying to make clothes for my dolls. I lost my mom when I was 37 and with it most of my desire to sew. Lately, I have been so inspired by fabrics again and recently bought a sewing machine. I would love to make pillows out of these fabrics to complement my Christmas decor! Thanks for the offer.

  9. I love the way certain designers mix fabrics when they are putting together a room. It looks so cohesive and not "matchy-matchy". In my opinion, Sarah Richardson is the master!!! My personal goal is to learn how to sew in the next few months. I hope I can find a place where excellent fabrics are sold at a discount. Then, I've got to get myself to a few classes. It would be great to be able to make my on covers for throw pillows!

  24. Great post--love fabric and fabric stores. My car is in the shop for repairs, but today I took the city bus and walked16 blocks in order to visit Hancock Fabrics. Big sale there--zippers 50% off, plus a coupon for an additional 10 percent off total! Perfect time to pick up some zippers for some new pillows I'm sewing. Very interested in the giveaway. Judy

  27. Hi Marty I have long coveted this fabric. I am actually thinking that it might look fabulous in the man cave that is currently undergoing the one room transformation challenge. As Mr. Decor was stationed in Japan for a few years this would fit well into the theme. Fingers crossed. :) Also, great news....they have a Home Fabrics fairly close to my home here in DFW. :)
