Sunday Stash #23 - Ikea fun!

I've wanted this fabric since I first spotted this tutorial for a dry erase coloring place mat.  I have a a few littles in my life that I like to make fun presents for, and this seemed like a good one.  There are a lot of different "scenes" to keep it interesting.

Ikea TIDNY fabric
The problem was, I live in Louisville, KY and the closest Ikea to me is in Cincinnati, OH.  It's only about an hour and forty-five minutes away, but that's a little too far to just drive up and buy some fabric (because of course, it's only available in store).  However, a couple weekends ago my brother- and sister-in-law were headed to Ikea anyway, so I asked them to pick me up two yards.  (I also asked about the Britten Nummer line, but they didn't have any in-store.)

Super cute scenes for coloring!

In hind site, two yards was probably too much, as this is home decor weight and extra-wide width.  I see a LOT of place mats in my future - maybe one for home and one for travel for each kid?  :)

Penny for size comparison.
Linking up with Sunday Stash!


  1. I love that print! We don't have an Ikea very close either and last time I went I resisted buying any. Enjoy yours!

  2. IKEA mail orders! We are lucky to have three Ikeas in the greater DC area but each one takes about 45 min to an hour to get to. I love their stuff.

    You have lots of fabric now! LeeAnna at not afraid of color

  3. I love so many fabrics IKEA offers, too bad most of them are home decor weight. Sounds like you will make good use of it, thought =)
