Textile Love

I had to zip over to IKEA this afternoon because I needed a special bulb for my desk lamp. While I was there, I had a walk through and poked around in the fabric department. I came across this fabulous fabric and had to have some!

I love how only parts of it are highlighted with olive green.

I love all the seed pods...



the birds...


the pomegranates.

It was a mere $2.99/yd so I got two yards worth. Now the question is what I'm going to make with it? A pillow case? A journal bag? A cover for a new ROD journal? Or all of the above? The possibilities are endless!

OMG: That fabric is super nummy! I can see another ROD journal cover plus many other projects. I don't think our local Ikea has a fabric department. I am so envious!

Love this fabric. I, too, want to go to Ikea now - although I'm not sure if the one here actually has a fabric department. I hope it does.
