Ikea Fabric – Who Knew?!

ikeafabric

My daughter is turning 3 this week (I can’t believe it!). We went to Ikea yesterday to look around for decorations for her fairy party. Naturally I found a lot of things not related to the party, but just *had* to have. “It’s only $1.99″ I told myself. While I was looking at their adorable children’s section, I noticed they actually sold fabric! Am I the only person that didn’t know this? I only had time to look at the kid’s section – the natives were getting restless – but I noticed they had regular fabric as well. I couldn’t believe the deal. Two yards of fabric for $8! I’m thinking this would make the most adorable children’s quilt, fussy cutting out the little animals. Another project to add to my list!

    Who knew eh? I adore all of Ikea’s fabric and I have to hold myself back everytime I walk in there! The home dec fabric is my favorite! Makes great handbags and curtians too! The fabric you chose will make a wondeful child’s quilt :-)

    LOL — I only recently found out that IKEA has fabric (probably learned about it on a blog or Flickr). Do you think the quality is good? I haven’t actually seen any in person and I was wondering if it’s cheap for a reason….

    That’s the theme that Eliza has in her room. She has the green duvet cover with those figures on it–she calls it her froggie blanket. I am hoping once I feel better I’ll make her a new valance of triangular flag shapes to put up and match the rest of the room. I figured that might be easy given my limited sewing skills.

    Even I knew that! :-) I remember going in there before (a long time ago) and thinking that was strange (I mean, what do people do with just FABRIC – lol! now I would have a field day!). I was wondering the same thing about if the quality would be worth it. You might want to try first on something that wouldn’t be washed over and over. I’ve read a couple of blogs about people spending so much time on a quilt that has some cheaper fabrics in it and being heartbroken when it wears out after a couple of washes.

    Well if KARA knew, then I know I’m in trouble! LOL I’ll let you know how it holds up. It feels good…I mean, it’s not as soft as MoMo Wonderland, but that stuff is great!

    I’ve got to stop at the fabric section – usually forego it. Anyway I need a kitchen island for my cutting table. My back is already aching with all the bending down.
