I’m channeling my inner game show host tonight to present my first episode (and hopefully first of many) of:
~Name That Fabric! ~* Anyone wanting to make a cute blog button or neat graphic is welcome to! *
I am pretty good about my fabric organization and labeling. But there have been times when I have purchased fabric where there are no identifying logos or names. Usually these mystery fabrics are from fat quarters of precut bundles of some sort. But there have been a few times where I *may have* thrown the label away. So now I have a good number of mystery fabrics. Some I have used, others are still nicely folded, but all needing names!
Now I know I’m not the only one like this. Do you have a fabric you love but either forgot the name or didn’t write it down? Or maybe you know the designer, but not the line or if it’s even in production anymore? With all the bloggers out there and the number of them involved with fabric, we’re bound to get some clues to solve our mystery!
Here’s what I’d like to do. Every week or so, identify a mystery fabric and help that person identify and/or locate their fabric. A picture showing a scrap (if you have one) would be great, as well as any information you recall. If we share it on our blogs and other social media, maybe we can get the information we need. I’m still ironing out details, but for now if you are interested in participating just leave a comment and we’ll go from there. Feel free to link this post as well. The more help we can get the better!
I will start out the mystery fabric search tonight. Here it is:
This is a mid-weight home decor print I purchased earlier this year at Hancock Fabrics. It was precut – about 1 1/2 yds and I don’t remember the width. Maybe 50″ wide. This main color is what I’d call dirty white with grey vertical stripes. I bought a yard of pale yellow/dark yellow stripe that looked like it could be from the same maker….no identification either. I love this fabric. Goes with everything and washes well. I’d love a whole bolt if I could! Here is what I made with it:
I’m almost done, so when the monsoon passes and I can get
better any sort of good lighting I’ll share more pictures. I looked at my receipts from Hancock Fabrics and found no name or code (which is typical for a lot of their rolls or precuts). Premier Prints was the first name that popped in my head, but after a Google hunt and some online searches I hit a dead end.
If you know the whereabouts of the above fabric and can provide any information you can contact me below or send an e-mail. Anonymous tips are welcome, but your name would be appreciated so credit for the discovery can be yours. Interested in sharing your mystery fabric hunt? Please let me know in the comment section and I’ll start a list.
Ready, Set, Go!
