Lately, I’ve been getting the itch to do a DIY project, big or small. Making pillows is easy enough, but I think I want to do something different, but equally as simple — like making a piece of wall art by stretching fabric over a frame. When I found these fabrics by Home Sweet on Etsy, that desire sparked up inside of me again. After all, prints as beautiful as these deserve to be put on display — works of art in themselves.
Jennifer Nelson designs and makes the fabrics at her Delaware home. They are block printed by hand with eco-friendly inks, and the bold, retro-leaning patterns are right up my alley. They are incredibly simple, yet still intricate and attention-grabbing enough to make a great home decor statement. If you’re not inclined to try your hand at crafting, you can purchase a variety of products already made with these fabrics, including gorgeous pillow covers and table linens. I think I’ll start with a few small swatches of fabric and work my way up from there. I’ll let you know what I come up with.
Why It’s Green:
- Patterns are block-printed onto hemp/organic cotton blend fabrics using water-based inks
- Handmade in the U.S.
Price: $9-70 for fabrics swatches of varying sizes. Approx. $70/yard
