Another New Pillow.

It's becoming apparent that I am a bit of a pillow addict. I find it hard to pass up a beautiful pillow when out shopping or a beautiful fabric with pillow potential even more so! Needless to say, I'm that girl who has to have baskets to put your bed pillows in a at night and baskets to hide the pillows from Beaufort while I'm at work (He's a pillow sucker). There are pillows everywhere.

My newest pillow is a beautiful coral pink one that sits with the grey striped ones on the bed. I ordered the fabric from Spoonflower and had it custom made with piping. I love the color and how it ties with the "For Like Ever" print in the room.

A while ago I discovered, a website that allows you to design your own fabric, upload it, and have it screenprinted onto fabric. I'm not much of a designer myself but you can spend hours pouring through the designs of others until you find one that you like! Believe me, I found several. One artist I like in particular is Domesticate. I emailed her with a few questions and she was more than helpful and very kind.

I bit the bullet and ordered a few meters to try it out. All in all, I'm happy with my order. For $1 you can order a sample of their fabric weights, which I recommend doing first. Shipping cost were reasonable but it  took a few weeks. However, they were upfront about that in their shipping information. I'd order from them again!

A side note.. Barbara of Hodgepodge commented on my Lusting post. Apparently, Rugs USA is now shipping free to Canada! This is new this week and I'm certain is only because they heard me lamenting:) Thanks Barbara!
