....and now I know my abc's......Alphabet Love

This fancy new "script" or "document" fabric is really popular.  I decided I needed to find some and make something.  My favorite go-to place for fabric and craft supplies is Hobby Lobby.  It is hands down better than the other folks, Michael and JoAnn, at least around our neck of the woods.  Pretty this fabric is, cheap it isn't.  This was around $25 per yard.  However, it seems Hobby Lobby "always" has their upholstery fabric on sale for 30% off.

Since Pam brought me 2 antique ladder backs recently (that she no longer needed after some make-overs at her house), I thought this would be the perfect way to use this fabric.  Especially since I only bought 1 1/2 yards : )  This was how I spent my New Year's Eve.  Sewing seat covers.

And, it's matchy matchy with my old script bamboo rug.

While this project was somewhat fulfilling, my love affair with the alphabet isn't over yet.   There are several versions of this fabric on the market, and I'm dying to acquire some more!

  7. Your chairs turned out adorable! That fabric is very cool! Hobby Lobby is my favorite too! I always seem to find better stuff for better prices there! If you get a chance, stop over, I posted pics of our old store.

  8. I definitely live in the wrong part of the world because I cannot find any type of script fabric anywhere for the life of me! I am going to have to resort to ordering it online I guess. Love the chair and the fabric!

  9. I just bought some of this fabric last night for a friend of mine! Your chair cushion looks great!

  10. They also had it in grey, which was gorgeous!
