Here is a small taste. And this is just the fabric bag. Most of the pieces below are barkcloth, so with that lovely grainy texture. I did not get near the tablecloths, tea towels and bed sheets. Enjoy!
Unfortunately this piece is not very big, but divine nonetheless.
So fresh, so flowery.
This is a corker, the grey shadow behind solid colour was a popular motif in the fifties.
There were lots of designs that incorporated food in the sixties, I remember wallpaper a bit like this.
How can I ever cut this, I mean really.
Another wonderful fifties abstract piece, currently curtains.
I'm a bit over this as I have had it up as a pair of curtains, but is now back in the bag.
Illustrative designs were popular for kids' curtains in days gone by, seemed to be lots for boys!
This is one of my all-time faves, printed on linen. I did use some for covering my recipe book.
I suspect I'll never stop collecting vintage fabric. If the house ever burnt down I'd certainly be running for it: kids, dogs, photos, fabric, in that order.
