You know I’m a fan of sewing your own home decor because the projects are so darn easy – like literally sewing a straight line in most cases, but getting your hands on the right fabric is what makes or breaks your project right?
Buying fabric online is definitely the way to go.

5 more awesome places to buy fabric online!
If you’ve ever looked for wall art online you’ve probably stumbled upon Minted — or maybe you know them from their holiday card printing shop but did you know that you can buy fabric by the yard on minted.com too?
And not just any fabric.
Really cool prints designed by artists! Which means when you buy from them you’re supporting artists. You can even see where they’re from which I think is really fun cause it often means I’m supporting a local artist. –Win!
I also need to point out that the search filters on Minted are the best. You can narrow your search for fabric by color, pattern style, AND scale which I know is really helpful in your quest to mix fabric patterns like a pro.
I first discovered that you could buy fabric by the yard on Etsy when I needed one more yard of a certain fabric but the place I originally bought it didn’t carry it anymore. A little googling led me to Etsy and I was able to find it!
They’ve got a mix of fabrics. Both mass produced and fabrics designed and printed by artists. My favorites are definitely the watercolor fabrics.
Searching for the perfect fabric here is a little more difficult but something I’ve found helps is to use the search bar and search “fabric by the yard + color, pattern, or style” to narrow your search.
This is one of those hidden gems that I didn’t know about for a really long time. And I’ll admit that at first I was overwhelmed with the fabric feed but then I discovered the filter called designer store and looked at each one, one at a time. My favorites are Origami Prints, and Fine and Dandy Paperie.
Zazzle is also a great resource for plaid fabrics, which I love to use when making pillow covers in the fall or winter.
I know! Who knew you could buy fabric on eBay? Crazy right?
There’s a lot of fabric here so you’ll definitely want to use the filters, which there are lots of, to narrow your search.
You can narrow it down by color, use, type of fabric/ weight of fabric, and pattern so it’s easy to get to what you are looking for.
Definitely check out the ratings of the seller since buying though eBay means you are often dealing with a private seller but I’ve never had an issue.
I might have saved the best for last 🙂
My absolute favorite source for buying fabric online, Fabric.com is actually owned by Amazon so you can guess that Amazon has a wide variety of fabrics to chose from for any kind of sewing project you have in mind.
And of course Amazon has become one of my favorite sources for fabric by the yard because I buy so many things through them already. Bonus that if you’re a Prime member you can get your fabric darn quick in a lot of cases and not pay any shipping.
Like most other sites I’ve mentioned the filters are awesome, in fact there are even more specific filters to use here.
So that’s it, another short list of my favorite online fabric sources. — find another 5 of my favorite places to buy fabric online in this post.
Buying fabric online has saved me so much time which means I can spend more time actually creating beautiful things for my home.
Now that you know where to get your fabric, it’s time to pick a simple sewing project and get to creating!
