Glorious Butterfly Tote – Constance


Constance lives in the beauteous Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina, and made a charming tote from fabric purchased from Britex Fabrics. We love the stunning over-sized butterfly printed linen, and the way she picked up the papillon wing color in the muted green of the straps and trim. This mid-weight home decorating linen is found on Britex Fabrics 2nd floor.

Pop Art-Inspired Home Decorating Fabric


I have decided to throw a little September potluck and invite Eva Perón, John Lennon, Ann Frank, and Jack Kerouac. Seriously, I love this pop art-inspired fabric with a montage of 4” squares depicting international luminaries. One of our regular customers just bought some for a vest, but it would also be fabulous as floor cushions or mounted on stretcher strips as wall art. This home decorating fabric is on Britex Fabric’s 2nd floor, is 57” wide, and $39.99/yard.

I want to make a window seat, and cover it with this amazing kelim-inspired home decorating fabric. I love the diamond-shaped serrated medallions and the bold colors.

This gorgeous home decorating fabric is 54” wide, $95.00 a yard, and found on Britex Fabric’s 2nd floor.

Vintage Paper Doll Linen


Some of us do not feel the need to grow out of playing with paper dolls (you know who you are!) Here is a new linen home decorating fabric at Britex scattered with vintage paper dolls and their outfits. From officious nurses, to playful ocean swimmers, to be-smocked artists…..these paper dolls are handsomely clothed. This print is oversized, and the children are 18” and 12” tall. I can picture this as lovely sweeping bed canopy curtains! This fabric is printed on natural 100% linen, is 55” wide, $59.99 a yard, and can be found on Britex Fabric’s 2nd floor.

Cotton Boll Home Decorating Cotton

We love this taupe, cream, pink and maroon cotton home decorating fabric. Its giant wine-colored puffs remind me of cotton bolls. I want to cover wicker loveseat cushions with this, and then kick back with a glass of lemonade and an Agatha Christie novel, while listening to “Ol’ Man River” from the classic musical, Showboat.
“Ol’ man river,
Dat ol’ man river
He mus’ know sumpin’
But don’t say nuthin’,
He jes’ keeps rollin’
He keeps on rollin’ along.”
(By K. Kern and O. Hammerstein)

Leaf Green Tree Silhouette Home Decorating Fabric

Springtime in March was just a teaser; pink-blossomed trees and warm sunshine as I eat my lunch sitting at a café table, and then spitting rain and chilliness. This home decorating fabric with leaf green tree silhouettes helps me make it through the tag end of winter. I want to build a tree-house out of tag ends of lumber, and then invite my special friends up for ginger tea and Persian cardamom biscuits. This 54” wide cotton is available on Britex Fabric’s 2nd floor for $29.99/yard.
