inspirational fabrics from hawthorne threads

day 8 of project 365
one of my favorite people in the whole wide world has recently introduced me to a fantastic website: hawthorne threads. it's  been so helpful for me coming up with ideas for our new apartment. i've been browsing by theme and by color. so exciting! i can't fully explain how awesome this is, so let me just show you.
first you pick a fabric you like, and you'll find an enlarged picture and other important information.
then below this, you have all of these amazing options: coordinating prints (if there are any), the same print in alternate colorways (if there are any), and then--my personal favorite--a filter for finding coordinating prints by COLOR.
i chose the mustard color and came up with all these color choices (that actually continue for a really long time, but i can't get a screen shot like that):

so needless to say, i am having lots of fun looking at this overwhelming amount of awesome fabric choices, especially i am specifically trying to find prints for curtains, lampshades, cushions, but i keep getting distracted by prints i want to use for skirts, bags, aprons, etc. i am going to post below some of my personal favorites, and i'd love to hear your feedback on some of the choices!

 i have, obviously, found lots of prints that i really like, but i still feel as though i have a lot of looking to do. hopefully some sewing projects will be starting soon!

Pin It!
