Yellow Fabric

Some of you may remember that a while ago I enlisted help in finding a yellow fabric.  At the time, I couldn't tell you why I was looking for such a gender- neutral yellow fabric, but by now, you may have a good guess. 

Just over a year ago, my sister moved away and left me with her nursery set.  It is a light maple wood, which probably wouldn't be my first choice in bedroom furniture, so I started scouring the internet for room options that would work with said furniture.

It didn't take long before I spotted this room at Ohdeedoh and fell in love with the color scheme and thus my newly inherited furniture.

The room is from the blog Me and Wee and was done for a baby girl. Since we are not finding out the sex of our little one before the arrival (and there's a whole story there, more later),  and I was already in love with this room, I figured it was the perfect inspiration for our gender-neutral baby room.

Since it's more than difficult to find bright yellow and white crib bedding, I decided it might be easier to just find some fabric to make a crib bumper and possibly skirt to bring the yellow bedding in (the other bedding would just be white, easy-peasy, right?).  Turns out a modern yellow and white fabric is hard to find.  This is what I had in mind (but in yellow and white instead of orange and white, obviously):

Here's what I've purchased so far:

But I'm still not completely settled on it. I think it will get the job done, but I'm not sure it was exactly what I was looking for.  So if you happen to be out and about and notice some fantastically modern yellow and white fabric, let me know :-)

PS...yesterday Steven A posted an interview with me for 'Project Ten'. See more on his blog and stay tuned for the next designers! 

Recruiting Back-up

There's a little project I want to get started on but I'm stuck before I've begun.  If there's one thing I've learned in the past 7 months of blogging it's that if I have a question, I now have a wealth of knowledge- my wonderful readers!  Again, I need help finding something which should be right up your alley.

I know many of you are very 'crafty' and have experience in many different craft venues, and today I want to know where you buy fabric.  I know there are a wealth of online fabric sources these days and I'm interested to hear which ones are the best.

More specifically, I would love some help finding a yellow and white fabric.  I like the modern lines of the imperial trellis pattern (see above) and the color to white ratio.

I like the Sunbrella fabric above, but am looking for more of a cotton quilting fabric. I like the colors in the swatch above, but would prefer the yellow being a little more vibrant.  I also want to steer clear of flowers and anything else too feminine.
This is more the colors I am looking for, but I would like to see more yellow than white.

Hopefully you have an idea of what I'm looking for, and maybe you fabric enthusiasts have seen something similar out there.  I won't limit it to just fabric.  If you are out shopping and notice some curtains or sheets that look like they might work, let me know where you find them.  So, this is your mission, if you choose to accept it.

Once the project is done there will of course be a fun reveal- but you'll just have to wait on that :)
