This post should be dedicated to favourite fabrics,
those that have been used to within an inch of their lives.
are having a party to celebrate their love of fabric.
However me being a vintage lover,
I couldn't very well come up with a fabric I've loved and lost
(not yet anyway)
So I've spun this post
to favourite vintage finds that have yet to be cut...
...or special items that will remain just so.
Starting from the bottom.
A pair of barkcloth curtains that I wish would fit one of my windows.
An amazing handmade skirt.
A lovely feedsack from America.
A huge stash of Grandmas green floral fabric
(given to me after her death, I'd love to know what it was for,
I found a sticker on it that said 'alternative fabric',
I think it may have been for bridesmaid dresses!!)
The blue is a French overcoat I bought at a flea market,
which I modelled in one of my Brittany posts.
And the top is a lovely vintage floral, which I've used once,
but now I'm waiting for the perfect project,
as this one is a keeper.
barkcloth curtains I cannot cut up!
Awesome 70's skirt, that I've owned for years
but which I can't fit into,
yet can't bare to cut into it, look at the lining for heavens sake!
It even has amazing buttons.
These next two are my favourite scraps.
I really will miss them when they disappear.
At least I have my summer of love quilt to remember them with!
Do you have a loved and lost fabric?
