Ok peeps, I am OBSESSED  with navy and white fabric right now. I am searching for the right choice for some curtains, but I have found that it is hard to find this color without a HEFTY price tag. Plus, I am pretty picky about what I need it to look like. I can see the vision of what I want it to look like!!! So, check out my these pictures of inspiration fabrics so you can get a feel of what I am looking for. :)

Anyone have any fabric hook ups!?!? I have been trying to find dark blue and white for my curtains for awhile now, but paying $20+ a yard is NOT what I want to do {especially since I need about ten yards}. So, if you see a navy and white fabric in your area that is fabulous for a great price {I’m talking less than $10.00 a yard} take a picture and send it to me because I am on. the. hunt! {And I don’t have access to great fabric stores here in little ol’ St. George, Utah!}

I’m thinking I might have to go to Vegas for the search! But, I already called my favorite fabric store and they don’t have anything like this right now! DARN! But if you are looking for bold colors of velvet, they said they just got in some fun options.

Anyone run into fabric like this!?!? If so, where and how much!?!? :)

    i just made a cornice for my son's room (thanks in part to your tutorial! :) using Duralee's navy and loop de loop fabric. Normally around $50/yard, but http://www.fabric.com sells it for around $20 — but they sell out FAST! but i love, love, love it! great weight, bold colors and texture.

    I was just at Home Fabric and Rugs today and they had a few options similar to these. I'm also in the market for navy and white fabric to try to make a duvet cover so I was paying attention. They didn't have exactly what I was looking for but did have some good ones. Their prices are amazing. Most are $7.99/yd some as low as $3/yd. They have a website but it is not very good and hardly shows any of their fabrics. I'm in Northern California and I don't know if there are any near you. If I get back there soon I'll take some pictures for you.

    Hey Brooke. Love your blog! I've been a reader for a while, but this is my first comment here. :)
    I made some curtains out of a blue and white trellis print a few months ago. The fabric is called Waverly Parterre Porcelain and I got it for $12/yard because Joann price matched a price I found online for it (I can't remember where though, sorry!). Here is a post on my blog with pictures of my curtains, plus a chair I reupholstered, thanks to inspiration from your blog. Thanks! You're great!

    Maybe you could find some print sheets that you like and use them for fabric. You might get lucky- target has some trendier home decor stuff! Just an idea.

    I have used Online Fabric Store at http://www.onlinefabricstore.net/ they have 390 pages of fabrics in the blue colour hue alone, shipping is free if over $50 and their prices are better than reasonable. I'm from Canada and have ordered from them, still making it well worth my shopping there.
    Thanks Brooke for all your posts and hope you find something that suits what you are looking for, luv to check out your blog.

    Try Fabrics.com under outdoor fabric. They have several selections similar to the ones you have listed that might work at around $8.98 a yard. They also have a coupon code which would save you even more money. What I like about the outdoor fabric is that it is indoor/outdoor fabric which is washable, and that is a real plus in my book!

    Erin, SOOO CUTE, but that might be too much for me per yard. :(

    Melissa, someone else just told me about Premier on my facebook page too! :)

    BrinaBabe: I should do that! I love fabric and would LOVE LOVE LOVE to get wholesale prices!!

    April!! I LOVE Home Fabrics! It is my favorite fabric store! I go to the one in Henderson, NV {by Vegas} and they said they don't have anything that color right now. So, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let me know if you could about your store. :) You rock.

    Jill, thank you for that link. It isn't too shabby either. I knew my readers would come through for me!!

    I too have a navy and white fabric obsession. I found a shower curtain at Target that I am cuting in half to make curtains for my master. It's $23.99 and i figure that's way less than any of the fabrics I found at fabric.com. Which some of my choices are identical to yours above. I'm not sure how much yaradge a shower curtain is, but I know it will work for me. I have 5 windows in my bedroom and 2 weird frosted door windows in the bath. So let's say i buy 4 and cut them in half. That's still $100 for the cuirtains. Can't beat that! :)

    My little online fabric shop sells the Riley Blake chevron print. I only charge 8.50 a yard. :). Which is an amazing deal!!! I am currently sold out of all the chevrons at the moment but have more on order. The chevrons are on back order right now but should be in stock closer to the end of May.


    Just a thought!!! :)


  13. says

    Love the Blue prints! I am in St. George and have an Etsy Fabric Store (TheSewSweetShoppe). The Riley Blake Chevrons are on back order until the end of June, but I would for sure give you an awesome deal if you need any!

    I live in MO and have a local place called FM Stores that sells AMAZING fabric for $6.99/yard in canvas, duck, twill, and lightweight cotton. I will be happy to stop by and look for navy and white prints. I'll be back in town Monday and can run by if you can wait until then. You might want to price shipping from MO to UT, but the price per yard can't be beat.

  15. says

    oops, sorry – totally didn't read all the way to see the under $20 part. i've used premier prints before too, and was pleased. fabric.com also has 15-20% coupon codes online and free shipping over $35. can't wait to see the final product!

  16. says

    If you don't need a LOT I almost always (for some reason) find great shower curtains to use as fabric, especially in Target. I think they just had a run of navy and white stuff very similar to what you posted. Good luck – oh….and Goodwill stores (at least here in PA) get Target's "salvage" so I often find things there too!

    I also LOVE navy and white, and my house is showing it. These are great fabric choices. I'm wondering though if the Riley Blake fabric is heavy enough for curtains. I used this type of fabric (in gray and white) for my office and it looks really good and is the right weight. http://www.etsy.com/listing/98763308/premier-prints-zigzag-chevron-in-navy?ref=sr_gallery_9&ga;_search_query=navy+chevron+fabric&ga;_view_type=gallery&ga;_ship_to=ZZ&ga;_min=0&ga;_max=0&ga;_search_type=supplies. If you want to see it in action, here's another link http://prettydubs.blogspot.com/2012/05/welcome-to-our-office.html. When I was pricing curtains to fabric, making them myself was definitely cheaper. Good luck and have fun!

    I’m looking at the navy imperial trellis knockoff on fabric.com but it seems like the background is off-white and not a bright white…my walls, trim and other decor is bright white. Do you think you can mix white and off white fabrics in a bedroom?
