Get on the DIY bandwagon

Head over to the Design It Yourself website for project tips, a list of resources and links, and best of all, the downloads section. Here you can get printable PDFs for stuff, including my favorite, the Post Consumer T-shirt. Be sure to read the PDF's instructions, since you'll get some clever ideas for embellishing your shirt.

This is great!

Jessica, can you suggest a good online fabric store? I know there are a MILLION, but I have somthing specific in mind and I'm just lost. I could not think of who better to ask than you and your uber-stylish readers.

I am going to stretch it over a wood frame canvas for a large open white wall in my family room.

Colors: chocolate brown with robins egg blue.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the fantastic blog.

The book is fabulous if you don't already have it. I can't wait to work with Ellen next year when I start the design graduate program at MICA.

My daughter was two when she announced to the world that her favorite color is ornage, I spelled it the way she says it. So, when I stumbled upon this blog I was hooked. I have been loyal browser to your blog for a while, thanks for keeping me entertained.

Hey Green Chick,

If you scroll down my blog links, eventually you'll hit the "online fabric store" section. You could browse around in there. I'm sure there are some gorgeous high end designer fabrics out there for a billion dollars a yard, but I've only bookmarked the affordable ones. I've emailed Caroline at J. Caroline to see if she can think of something for you. You could also email Holly at because sometimes she features reader questions. And she's well-connected.

Good luck! Sounds like a cool project.
