Get in the Mood to Create: Daisy Janie Organic Fabrics

daisyjanie1

I have realized something in my for interior decor perfection: There is no such thing. I am not exaggerating when I say I have been searching for the perfect pillows for our sofa for months. I have an idea of what I want them to look like, but I’ve been unable to find pillows that fit my vision AND are green. So I started thinking I may just have to make them myself. That line of thinking led me to revisit the drop-dead gorgeous organic fabrics from Daisy Janie, designed by Jan DiCintio.

I found Daisy Janie a long, long time ago, and for some reason neglected to share them with you. Most of these patterns debuted last spring, so I guess I’m just in time for the changing of seasons this year. If this is your first time seeing these fabrics, I’m sure you won’t be disappointed. I’m becoming quite the do-it-yourselfer when it comes to textiles and soft furnishings for our home, and I have to stop myself from stockpiling beautiful fabrics like these when I come across them.

If you’ve never wanted to pick up a needle and thread or use a sewing machine, these are just the fabrics to make you think about trying it. They make me want to pull out the staple gun (and my patience) and find a chair to reupholster. I couldn’t decide which pattern or colorway to feature because they are all so beautiful. So instead of trying to force feed you my opinion, I’ll just let you admire the entire collection in all it’s bold, colorful glory.

Why It’s Green:

  • Printed on organic cotton canvas and organic cotton sateen. Certified organic by GOTS and the Texas Department of Agriculture
  • Made in the U.S.

Price: Fat Quarters: $14-16; Yardage: $56-64/yard. Also sold in the Daisy Janie Etsy shop.

      Well, technically, Daisy Janie isn’t new, but she’s new to you and I, so I guess that’s just as good 🙂

    Definitely a good find. In my whole life, I have never fancied boldly colored fabrics. This indeed is an exception to my taste.
    I have long been a fan of plains and textured fabrics. I think I am just too OC about my pillows and upholstery. Thanks to this post, I have finally opened my eyes to the world of prints!
    A great collection — truly eye candy. I guess now I’m ready for next season. I have lots of great ideas on how to play with these intricately printed fabrics.

    I bought samples of her entire collection last year. I love, love, love them. They are super soft! And Jan DiCintio is super sweet.

    Amazing fabrics. I have had something similar. I am not sure what it was, but these are not it. Shopping trips….I have an idea in mind but finding something you think should not be that hard to find sometimes is! These are amazing fabrics.
