Design Love: Barkcloth

As part of the grand scheme for my front porch summer makeover, I would really like to freshen up the pair of pillows on my metal glider. So, I rationalized, what a perfect reason to surf ebay for more barkcloth fabric!

Here's some finds from current auctions, a little Friday eye candy.

The atomic patterns aren't usually my favorites, but I think this is a cool geometric/atomic one:

There are several chinoiserie-style patterns in different colorways available right now:

There are some of the more typical tropical patterns. This first one is a huge amount of yardage.

In addition to the usual cowboy theme, here's one with just horses:

And one of the coolest patterns I've ever seen, this tropical pattern with ZEBRAS!! The seller has a fascinating background story about meeting the designer of this fabric HERE. I think this one is amazing, but at a Buy It Now price of $195 for one yard of fabric, it's well beyond my budget!
