Being Creative with Fabric by the Yard

Every so often, I spot the perfect fabric for a project around the house, and I’m glad my mother taught me to sew. Nowhere is this more true than when I’m looking through the custom fabrics by the yard that are offered on Rosenberry Rooms. There are some great deals to be had, and since you can control what you use your designer fabric by the yard for, you can be sure that your final product will be exactly what you’re looking for!

An easy project to start with is making pillows, since you can sew the straight edges easily on a sewing machine or by hand. Aside from the simplicity of the project, the next best thing is all of the options of custom fabric you can choose -from  maybe the All American Doodlefish Fabric for a playroom, or the Alligator Corduroy Doodlefish Fabric for a girl’s nursery. Thinking bigger and bolder? Then create large floor pillows for your children to use as playroom seating, just be sure to pick a sturdy fabric that will hold up to all the wear and tear your child will inevitably put it through.

Any room with a window will benefit from beautiful window treatments, including curtains made from simple patterns like the Apple Dot Doodlefish Fabric or the fresh Aspen Cream Upholstry Fabric. Unlike premade curtains, you may find that sewing your own curtains from fabric by the yard allows you to tailor the window dressings to your exact specifications, rather than settling for curtain panels that are too long, too short, or of the wrong width.

Of course, not all uses of fabrics by the yard need to be practical; one thing that I’ve always enjoyed is pairing similar or identical patterns together for quilts and blankets made not only for a small child’s cradle or bed, but also for the cradle or bed of their most beloved doll. Sweet fabrics like Asparagus Simone Fabric by the Yard give a feminine feeling without going over the top, and would be the perfect complement for a dolly’s cradle. Little girls just love to play mommy, and adding some custom bedding made especially for their “baby” will make them enjoy play time that much more.

If you and your partner want to bring more understanding of the needs of the earth to your children’s everyday lives, sewing bags made from custom fabric by the yard and using them as toy holders or even grocery bags can be a surefire way to raise your family’s daily awareness of the needs of the planet.

Take a few moments to browse the custom fabrics that Rosenberry Rooms has made available for these and many more exciting home craft projects. Not only will you enjoy looking at the numerous, brightly-colored patterns and fabrics that have been selected, but you may also be inspired to take on your own home décor project! If this happens, then just remember who it was who gave you the idea…and order your fabrics from Rosenberry Rooms!
