cool

This is pretty neat fabric. Wish I was close to a retailer! That would be fun to work with! Are you creating a project with any of it? Thanks for the link!

No, I'm not using this particular fabric but I found it searching for fabric for my Airstream kitchen window. Michael Miller fabric is usually more readily found at quilt shops and there are online retailers who have the fabric.. There is some listed on eBay.

I am doing some updating to our '87 Sovereign which you can see here: Straw Cottage

Love the fabric!

I think I need to make new drapes for the house so the six (6) months I am
winter bound I can dream of happy trails.

Thanks!

That would make a really cute vintage style apron for all your Airstream cooking needs

I got it!

I just found that fabric and will be making a set of curtains for our airstream. I love being able to switch out the look. When I get home I have a box full of the #3 swatch waiting for me at home

Also purchased the chair fabric in coral. Both are at Fabric.com

I see a totally fun, kitschy look. After all Airstreams have lots of personality!

On a side note to those who sew, I suggest using insul-bright inside your curtain panels (if you have the top/bottom rails). It really helps cut the temp loss/gain you get with the windows.

We're on the road during this 2-degree weather. Just the quick "slip in" insulation helped with heat loss from the panoramic windows. enough to be noticeable. All curtain sets going forward will have the stuff from top to bottom.

Stay warm, my friends!

Can't wait to see your photos!

I wish I had known about InsulBright before I made my curtains. I'm thinking I could open up a side seam and tack some inside...

Just found the fabric here. While camping, I like to wear a sweatshirt that has been modified and trimmed to resemble a cardigan. They are cozy and easily washed and dried. I think I will get some of this fabric to use for trim on a couple of those.
