Pixie Dust Fabric
Thursday May 28, 2009see more by jen
So I am starting a fun little DIY project in baby’s nursery. I found these letters to spell baby’s name to hang on the wall at a baby store recently. They were custom, the letters backed on a square of fabric and hung with a ribbon. Very, very cute. Problem was, they were like $31 each, plus tax and shipping. We have chosen a 6-letter name. Eek! The husband thought that was a bit excessive, so I had to get creative.
I thought, hmmmm, how about I buy the plain white letters that are $5 / each (and they were 20% this past weekend – even better!) and make something myself? The plan is to mount the fabric on square pieces of wood and they have have hubby find a way to attach the letters and hang with a cute ribbon. So, I got the letters and then I went on the search for fabric.
It is surprising how hard it is to find REALLY cute fabric out there! I went to several major fabric stores and couldn’t find anything I loved.
I was very excited when I found the most darling fabrics on Pixie Dust Decor! They match my bedding perfectly. If I didn’t have the bedding already, I would have totally looked at their crib bedding sets. So adorable! So, those are my swatches I got above. I will do another post when I (hopefully) finish the project!
