On previous posts, you have seen that I use this lovely fabric for making pillows. I have also used it in embellishing denim jackets that I sell as well. Mostly, I just covet this fabric. I just love looking at it. Having a good stash of vintage rose fabrics makes me happy. If loving barkcloth is wrong, I don't want to be right! ha ha
Here are just some of my favorites as well as some fairly recent finds.
One I got on ebay not too long ago.
I think I got this one on ebay too.
I've had this pattern a couple times. I've used it for both pillows and jackets. Would make pretty chair covers too.
This is one I found at a garage sale in my neighborhood. It was in mint/unused condition. After a good soak (boy was it dirty:), it came out soft and lovely.
I found two of these curtain panels at a shop in Vernonia several years ago. Still waiting for the perfect project for them.
This fabric is actually a valance that Isabel gave me.
This is a very small piece that I bought at Expo. (I think?) I just love the colors.
I got this fabric at Monticello from Debbie. It was actually a vintage garment bag that I cut up.
Normally I don't buy pillows as I can make them myself, but I just fell in love with the fabrics on this one and bought it from Kathy at the Coburg Antique Fair a few years ago.
I found this fabric at the Brownsville Antique Faire a few years ago and it was just the right size for a little pillow case. It is pretty fragile and I have had to patch a few holes, but I think it's lovely.
Another purchase from Debbie. This one I got at one of Monticello's Sales. It is a vintage bedspread. The fabric is a strong light weight canvas. I haven't had the heart to cut it up and have used it on my sewing room bed.
This is another bedspread. I think I've shown this one before. I found it at the Portland Antique Expo last year.
And finally, my most recent piece is one I bought on ebay and just got in the mail a few days ago. I just love the corally color of the background and the lovely roses.
I hope you have enjoyed my parade of vintage rose fabrics.
On another note, some of you have inquired about the name of the pattern on the aprons I made and showed on a recent post. The pattern name is Lilly Apron and it is put out by Busy Bee Quilt Designs. (http://www.busybeequiltdesigns.com/ ) You can probably find it at any good quilt shop. I saw it at a quilt shop in Milwaukie just this week.Hope you are all enjoying your week. I'll be back soon with more thrifted goodies.
