Dream Fabric

I did it.
I caved.
I went overboard.....
but I feel so excited.

After weeks of debate, long Saturdays in many, many Houston fabric stores (with Cristina, she's so great), hours on the internet and lots of free swatches sent to my house....

I found the designer (Annette Tatum, just take one look at her nursery catalog!) that made the fabric from this picture & had a free swatch sent to me just to see if I loved it as much in person..

I should have known that I would love it.
I should have never had it sent to me because as soon as I got it, I knew I wouldn't find anything else that compared... the only thing that held me back was the price. It was a little outrageous.

I have been holding onto this fabric for weeks now trying to talk myself out of it or find it somewhere online for cheaper...nothing.

I only needed 2 yards of the fabric, since it is going to be just the front of the bumper and found the cutest dot to accompany it on the back.

(swatch, dot fabric for back of bumper and paint color)

I did all the math to include 2 yards of dream/overpriced fabric, 2 yards of dot fabric and all materials needed to make this bed skirt..

and brought the subject up to Nick last night. I promised him I could keep all the bedding under $100, which is a good deal if you ask me. It just isn't so great that 1/2 of the bumper takes up most of the budget. But regardless he just rolled his eyes,
which translates to, "Do whatever you want". YES! I get the eye roll lots.

I ordered it today and just can't wait to get it.
