Fabric of the Day: IKEA Fabrics

Yep, the dorm/modular furniture store from Sweden carries fabric. Right in their stores! Not many home sewers or crafters think IKEA when they are looking for fabrics. I always forget myself. But IKEA always has a wonderful selection of beautiful prints reminiscent of Kokka Fabrics, Japan. And for very affordable prices! They range from $2.99 – $9.99 per yard. They do design right and their side collection of fabrics is no exception. If you love Kokka, then you know. It’s Kokka quality (and style) designs for about half the price!

It’s a stylish and economical option for all those homemade holiday gifts you’ll be making from now until Christmas! Here’s a sampling of my picks from their Fall Collection for North America.

To me, the designs are always fresh and fashionable and for some can appeal to their hipster side too. These fabrics are especially great for making accessories like totes, wallets, aprons and home deco like drapes, tablecloths, napkins, handkerchiefs, pillow cases, and of course quilts! They even sell some cheapie thread, fabric scissors, and sewing notions. So check out what IKEA has to offer in the lines of fabric in your country! It’s a gem!

See here for my first sewing project, I used a Kokka Fabrics print! True Up, the fabric blog from the heavens, also has many blog posts about Kokka Fabrics. Purl Soho right here in NYC also carries alot of Kokka Fabrics along with a wide selection of other fine fabric prints.
