Annie Sloan Fabric...

It's here! Annie Sloan has introduced her fabric to America. To make things a little easier, I've included what Chalk Paint™ colors I think go best with each pattern. Annie also has suggestions on HER website. All of the fabrics are factory direct from either France or Belgium.

First up is "Faded Roses":

Beautiful. It's 100% cotton and 55" wide. Repeat is approximately 25 inches. I'm going to also tea stain this one and maybe even try bleaching it in the wash to make it look vintage! $41.00 per yard.

Next, "French Hens":

Love it. It's 80% cotton, 20% Polyester. 63" wide. Repeat is approximately 24 1/2 inches. $48.00 per yard. Looks great with "Panama Rouge"!

On to "Normandie":

This beautiful lilac toile is DOUBLE WIDE. Wow! That's 110 inches. Repeat is 24 1/2 inches.  Perfect for drapery panels. 100% cotton. $84.00 per yard.

And now for "Charcoal Pastorale":

A timeless black and white toile. Again, a DOUBLE WIDE 110 inches! 28 1/2 repeat. 100% cotton. $91.00 per yard.

Here's "Panama Rouge":

This great striped fabric is an amazing 108 inches wide and 100% cotton. 6 1/2 inch vertical repeat. Who doesn't love practically ready made drapery panels?! I just made over a footstool with this using Coco. Turned out fab. $56.00 per yard. This is a limited edition fabric! Use with "French Hens"!

Introducing "Monaco":

Super fun! It's 55" wide, no repeat, and 100% cotton. $ 59.00 per yard.

Make way for "Gigi":

Sassy. Gigi is 56" wide. Horizontal repeat of 18 1/2 inches and 100% cotton. It just makes you smile when you look at it. $59.00 per yard.

Drum roll please...

The final pattern is "Nuits Et Rouge":

This ticking is described as "saucy" by Annie(love that!).  Has a great nautical feeling to me. 55" wide,  no repeat. 100% cotton. $62.00 per yard. This is also a limited edition fabric!

All of Annie's fabrics are available to purchase by the yard. I will have my samples in Country Roads tomorrow for all to see in person!
