Thank you Zazzle for providing a complimentary yard of fabric for review. All opinions are my own.
I have this weird thing about fabric. I love it. I mean, truly love it. I love new patterns, colors, textures. I think it stems back from when I was in design school, learning all about fibers and different kinds of wool and how nylon and polyester works for certain applications and not others. I studied fabric like a mathematician would study numbers or a chef studies sauces. It was my thing. Fabric.
There was a point where I actually considered myself pretty crafty. I made pillows and tote bags and poured over the bolt options from fabric stores and craft stores. I even made my own slipcovers once. Boy, that was quite the project. When I was young, I was all about Laura Ashley and the incredible floral patterns patterns she created. As I got older, I switched to being enamored by Rachel Ashwell… I’m a Shabby Chic girl at heart. I thought it would be so much fun to design my own fabric. Who on earth does that? Well, I DO THAT!
You might have heard of Zazzle.com – they are this amazing website where you can not only purchase products such as business cards and mugs and t-shirts and iPhone cases and notebooks and now… FABRIC!
But not only can you purchase all of this, you can DESIGN all of this. Yep… even the FABRIC!
Zazzle makes it almost too easy to design anything you could ask for on fabric. The best part is you only have to order what you need. None of this set up fee and minimum 100 yard order business. There is NO set-up fee (really!!!!) and your order can be as small as a swatch… or as much as multiple yards. You can order a fat square (if you quilt, this is awesome news) and I decided I just needed about a yard.
Not creative? That’s okay, there are tons of patterns to choose from.
So… here’s what makes it super easy. You choose your design, your background color, your size, your quantity, and you even have a choice of the type of fabric: combed cotton, pima cotton, cotton twill, polyester poplin, polyester weave, ivory linen, and natural linen. Need some help? That’s okay… Zazzle gives you that too.
I knew exactly what I wanted… my business logo on the combed cotton fabric. I wanted to make some pillows for my new office and this was so perfect for me.
I couldn’t wait to see the finished product and it did NOT disappoint.
Shipping was super fast and the fabric was neatly packaged in plastic to protect it from the elements.
The colors were bright and well saturated. There was no fading or discoloration of any kind and I can’t wait to get my pillows made. This is what they’ll look like when finished.
Pretty cool, don’t you think? This is what our logo looks like…
I’m so excited to see our logo on fabric. Now I want to put our logo on EVERYTHING! Good thing we can with Zazzle.com.
