Happy Patterns: Cloud 9 Fabrics’ Organic Collections

Lately, I’ve been a little sewing and fabric obsessed. I’m not the best seamstress, but I’m capable of simple projects, like making pillows, curtains and cushion covers that are presentable. I had to do all of these in my daughter’s room, and I’ve been working on some other projects around the house that I will reveal soon. To fuel my newfound obsession, I’ve been hunting for more gorgeous, and affordable, eco-friendly fabrics. While I’m not above paying $60-90 a yard for a really special project or a pattern I can’t live without, that kind of pricing isn’t practical for most of my everyday needs. These quilting-weight fabrics from Cloud 9 are just $16.50/yard.

The whimsical patterns and soft colors of their Beyond the Sea collection (shown above) would be appropriate in kid-friendly and adult spaces, and I can already think of a couple ways I’d like to use them. And while their previous collection, My Happy Garden, does feature some sophisticated stripes, overall, it is probably best reserved for a nursery or other child’s space. Of course, there’s no rule against using toadstools and tiny polka dots in grown up spaces, so use them where you see fit :)

Why It’s Green:

  • Made of organic cotton
  • Use environmentally responsible, solvent-free inks and dyes for printing
  • GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified

Price: $16.50/yard. Available from a variety of online and brick & mortar retailers.

    It is not easy to find good patterns. These are great. They are similar to those I have bought one time.
