Favorite Sources for Affordable Pillows

Wednesday, March 6th, 2013

This week is pretty crazy, we’ve got several projects in the works and we’re celebrating a birthday, so I’ve been away from the computer a lot but I got a great question the other day and I had to smack my head because I can’t believe I haven’t answered it yet.

“Dear Kate. How can I get to the information from February where you were describing how to combine patterns of throw pillows? And where can you find a variety of reasonably priced pillows?” ~ Loretta in Kentucky

Loretta that post you mention on pillow styling is here and I have a lot of places I like to shop for pillows. I’m a frequent pillow changer by season so if I don’t make them myself, I hunt for ready made ones that are affordable and by that I mean under $50.  I’ve kept a master list of retailers in a document on my computer and was reminded to post it here when Loretta prompted me.

Here are my favorite sources for affordable pillows (under $50):

1) Etsy.  I like to support small businesses so I shop around on Etsy for pillow covers made with designer fabrics, some of my favorites include Festive Home Decor, NenaVon, Pop O Color, Pillow Mood, Kassapanola, and WillaSkyeHome.

Fabulous Online Fabric Sources!

Thursday, June 28th, 2012

I’m up to my ears in fabric right now stitching up outdoor pillows, curtains for my daughter, and pillows for the new window seat too, and all of the fabrics I’m working with were purchased online.  This week, my sewing machine is certainly earning its keep! 

Fabric possesses that magical power to transform a space, and brings beautiful pattern, interesting texture, soft comfort, and always great style.  Visiting a fabric store with a beverage in hand is my idea of a perfect afternoon!

Textiles instantly establish the mood of a space, and I’m a huge fan of using bold bright colors or patterns and also layers of subtle colors that play well together.  I just love when designers mix various fabrics with abandon.

I was working on a giant list of favorite fabric sources to save on my computer for future use but then thought I’m sure many of you could use a great list of online fabric sources too!  Here are some of the best online sources for modern designer fabrics for decorating around the home (that ship to or are available the USA).
