DIY Lumbar Pillow
If there's one thing I really love seeing in a home, it's nice textiles. I'm a bit of a design nerd when it comes to beautiful vintage or designer fabric! As a designer, I'm certainly aware that quality fabric comes at a cost (with a higher price tag). Sometimes it's difficult to justify spending large amounts of your budget on fabric or convincing clients that it really will make a big difference. I totally 100% get it, so I thought it might be helpful to share tips for scoring nice fabric on a budget. I also threw in a lumbar pillow DIY to put that fabric to good use. That's another way to save money- make it yourself. Click through for the post...To start, I thought I'd share some of my favorite resources for designer and vintage fabric- along with some of my favorite textile designers.

Typically, the larger wholesale retailers offer fabric by the yard at a better price. When searching for vintage or 'used' pieces, you can often find great deals on remnants. Maybe someone needed seven yards and only ended up using five... that usually means they're going to let the remaining two yards go at a great price since their project is completed and the fabric is just sitting around.
