Vintage Trailer Upholstery Fabric: Organic and Cute! Thank You Sew Fine Fabrics!

Who said organic fabric had to mean neutral tones of hempy linen? I was bummed out about what I was finding online for organic fabrics options for the COMET upholstery, until I stumbled upon the Etsy shop, Sew Fine Fabrics. I wanted something bright, fun, and retro - not pea-green and scratchy. I was also looking for something affordable (everything else I came across was about $40/yard - yikes!) and Sew Fine Fabrics delivered everything I wanted at an affordable price. Sew Fine Fabrics offers organic lightweight and home decor weight fabrics in bright colors, amazing prints, and retro styling. Jodi Walter Jones, the owner of this lovely shop, says, "I'm seriously obsessed with finding fabrics I love. I spend way too much time tracking them down. I love that organic now means colors and textures and modern designs rather them the plain oatmeal color of the recent past." I could not agree more. I used the Pinstripe organic home-decor weight fabric for the rear bench in the COMET (also my bed!). I also used the Starburst Orange fabric for accent pillows. I was so excited to find an organic fabric in a pattern that I loved in the exact color scheme of the COMET - teal and orange! It's a perfect match. And all the fabrics are SUPER soft and sturdy. Just recently I ordered some more teal + orange fabrics from Sew Fine that I haven't used yet, but plan on incorporating into the trailer soon. So if your looking for some eco-friendly fabrics to use in your tiny house, vintage trailer, or other project, please do check out Sew Fine Fabrics on Etsy. Jodi is super sweet, and is happy to make up custom listings. I wholeheartedly recommend Sew Fine Fabrics.

Here are some pictures of the couch and pillows, all done with fabric selected from Sew Fine Fabrics.

Marmoleum Click flooring SketchUp model

Hello!

Yesterday I received my pallet full of goodies from the wonderful Green Building Supply. I got the UltraTouch denim insulation (which is so soft and squishy I want to make a bed out of it), lots of no-VOC paint for the interior and exterior, and my Marmoleum Click flooring! I'm really excited about the Marmoleum flooring - it's antimicrobial, all natural, and really nice to step on. I know the flooring doesn't go down until everything else is done, but I made up these models in SketchUp so I would know exactly how to lay out each panel (the Marmoleum I got comes in 12" x 36" planks).

I chose the black ("Lava") and white ("Arabian Pearl") because I felt like it would go with whatever color scheme (or lack there of, haha - I like to mix and match whatever I can find) I choose for the interior. I also think it's a nice nod to the past, as many vintage campers had the classic 50's-style black and white checkered linoleum floors. This design is a modern, updated version of those classic black and white tiles!
