Maybe Tomorrow?

Last week I shared the fabric I planned on using for new living room, but I couldn't find my camera cord and to share how the fabric looked on our sofa. Here's how the fabric looks on our sofa. I'm in love with the dark Indigo color.


So yesterday I got up and around early with the baby and tween ( BTW: loving the age gap so far in our boys ) and went to Joann's I decided to up my sewing game and use invisible zippers for my pillow covers. This will be a first for me, I usually skip projects that require zippers.


I got home and cut out the fabric for the pillows and realized I'm short fabric. There's only enough for the design to be on the front of the pillow. I guess I bought the fabric so long ago I forget how much I ordered! So now we'll be making another trip to Joann's looking for Indigo fabric so I can finish this project. In the meantime, I looked though my fabric stash and can across this fabric fabric I used a while back recovering a vintage chair I refinished. I've decided to make a pillow from this fabric too - just need to pick up a zipper. I think this fabric may be fun on the sofa. We shall see.


Has this happened to you, started a project only to stop because you don't have all the needed supplies? So like the title of the post, maybe tomorrow?

  1. That happens to me ALL the time haha. I get inspired by something I find and then realize I'm missing this or that, and say to myself "I'll run out and get it tomorrow"... unfortunately, sometimes that tomorrow doesn't come right away! ;)

    Love your fabrics though - that indigo one is so pretty! Good luck with the pillows!

  2. Story of my life! I had my first try at zippers a few months ago (and STILL haven't blogged about it, darn!) and they are tricky little buggers! Good luck, your pillows will be gorgeous. :)

  3. All.the.time. Like, almost every time I take on a project, cook a meal, I have to run to the store. Just the other night, I was putting together a picnic blanket for a friend and realized I didn't have enough batting. Annoying.

    Love the fabric you chose!

  5. I have a formal dining room table that has been my "tomorrow" project for about about a year now. I am determined to get the table and dresser I thrifted for the formal dining space sanded, primed and painted before I deliver in August. I really love the floral pattern, I am sure the indigo will be a fabulous touch in your living room.

  6. Yep all the time. It is very frustrating to finally think you are going to finish something and then have to stop. And kudos for you for the invisible zipper. I love the fabrics and I think they are going to turn out fab!

  7. I can tell you all about starting and stopping a project! I got a whole list of to-dos that still need to become ta-done's! Cute fabrixs!

  8. Love both fabrics. The second one reminds me of a Thomas Paul pillow that I won-that pillow retails for $125 and your fabric is so similar, I know it will make a gorgeous pillow.
