Last week I shared about that beautiful vintage linen tea towel that was my Nana’s. Today I am sharing more of her beautiful fabric.
This is a heavy weight cotton fabric that would be great for making cushions and bags and hats. Nana bought this fabric and used the motifs to appliqué on children’s items like pillow cases. It would be 25-30+ years old.
I love the bright colours of this fabric design and I really love the beautiful vintage style illustrations. These days I feel like everything is marketed iconic characters from popular children’s films and tv shows, and fabrics like this are refreshing and sweet and authentic.
Right now, being on summer holidays, my desire to craft is very high. Unfortunately my inspiration is also very low. I have ideas of things to sew and knit and crochet but I don’t feel inspired to do it. It is very strange. I know I *want* to be crafting but I can’t find the motivation/energy/time. Maybe next week will be different!
I put a banana next to one of the motifs so you can see how big they are. Very cute!
