Okay I was planning on making the crib bedding but I can't find the fabric I want in stores anywhere!! I am afraid to order it online though because I'm afraid the shade will be off.. and well I'm running out of time.. I have found some online that I love and was going to kinda copy it. She does custom orders and I could have it done exactly like I was planning on doing. However her customs take 4-7wks so it will probably be a bit late, which would be okay ish. But that being said if I was going to order it I need to do it now! But do i spend the extra money on a custom order, or continue shopping around wasting time and gas looking for the fabric I want? Not to mention I'm running out of stores to look at
Have you looked at fabric.com? They do free returns. I had to return fabric to them for the exact reason when I madw our bedding. It wasn't an issue at all. Plus if you spend over $35it you get free shipping to you as well (and there are always coupon codes out there for 10-15%me off as well).
I say go ahead and order it. I am the type that likes to be ready and prepared; so your situation would probably bug the heck outta me! That wasted time and gas would probably be equal to the extra money you will be spending to have it custom made. Another plus is it will save you the stress of continuing to search!
Do you have a Hancock Fabrics nearby? I think the damask is by Premier Prints and is called "traditions" in black/white, and they carry it. It'll be in the home decor/54" section. There are a lot of places that carry it online too for less than you'll get it at Hancock's.
Make sure you call and check it's in stock before you drive! They sell it on their website, but it's not always in all the stores.
Re the minky- it's called a dot fleece or something like that at hobby lobby, and at joanns its in the same area as terry cloth and chenille. We just had a new joanns open too and it toom a while for them to get everything stocked up after they liquidated it from the two smaller stores they combined. They will surely be able to tell you when they'll get it though bc they really carry a decent selection of it.
