Where do you go for an outdoor fabric? I want to make new lounger cushions and pillows for my patio. I am wondering if there is a good variety (means great color and patter variety) of outdoor (means synthetic, weather- and fade-resistant) fabric?

I know. I wish I could buy them, but it is a not very common size. And I want some great new colors too.

Go to High Fashion Home on Elgin in midtown. It is the four story building. There is a nearby High Fashion but it not the one that carries the upholstery fabrics. They have a lot of those fabrics designed for outdoor use.

And I also agree with modster. HighfashionHome has tons of fab but don't be fooled by the link. It certainly is not what I would call affordable. Guess it all depends on what ya are looking for.

I have noticed a lot of sunbrella or sunbrella-like (which is a good outdoor fabric brand) fabrics on eBay. Compared to $20-30 a yard (!) prices at some stores above, they sell (probably leftovers) for $2-5. I think it is a good deal if the size is right.

That is a great idea. Sometimes I only need about a yard to make an accent pillow for a client.
