HGTV HOME Fabric Review

Earlier this month I was sent two yards of the new HGTV Home fabric carried exclusively 
by Jo-Ann Fabrics.
They are on sale right now at Jo-Ann's plus you'll get an extra 10% if you print and use the coupon 
at the end of this post. 
I loved the pattern they sent me. This print also comes in a few other color stories too.
The fabric is 100% cotton and is of a very substantial weight.
It sewed up very nicely and was easy to work with.
There are several other prints I'm anxious to use also.

I walked around my house for quite awhile trying to decide exactly what I was going to do with it.
Finally, I decided upon my guest room.
I haven't shown it since I brought in this vintage rattan headboard.
I'd bought the comforter at Ross a couple of months ago.

The HGTV fabric complimented it well.
I love fabric covered shades and this seemed like a perfect opportunity to make one.
Just a little hot glue and some gimp on the inside to cover the raw edge and my shade was done!
I never liked the original shade that was on this lamp.
Next, I wanted a pillow for the bed. The obvious choice was to use the coordinating houndstooth 
fabric on the backside...but I wasn't feeling it.  
Instead I made a pleated ruffle using the fabric left with a rough edge. I unravelled the edge a little.
I really love how this turned out. 

This is just a fabulous new line of fabric.
I have to say I hadn't been in a Jo-Ann's in a couple of years. 
I'd given up on their upholstery fabric. They never had anything I liked.
But it's totally revamped now...there were many upholstery fabrics I loved.

And the HGTV fabrics were stand outs!

Just print the coupon to get 10% off!

There is also a HGTV Fabric @ Jo-Ann's Pinterest page that shows many of the projects fellow bloggers have made from their same samples of fabric.

I think you'll enjoy seeing all the creative projects other bloggers whipped up.

Great job nita!
The lamp looks like it came from
Neiman Marcus! I thought for sure you grabbed that image off of a magazine cover. To think it's all yours! Beautiful!
