My first foray into vintage fabric was via this little number... a tunic for Emma. She had just turned 2 in this picture - it seems so long ago!
This doona cover was something I picked up at an Op Shop / Thrift Store just near me, and it's completely gorgeous. Turning it inside out I could tell it had been lovingly turned into the cover by someone and I just love it in Emma's room. The yellow floral is so lovely and I was so surprised to find it in perfect condition - the things people throw away!!
I don't have a big stash, but the one on the top is my absolute favourite! I haven't decided what I will do with it, at the moment it just sits on my desk looking pretty ;)
I've also saved a few tea towels from Op Shops / Thrift Stores and made them into cushions for a bit of retro kitsch. I think the colours are just gorgeous!
If you're in the market for some vintage fabric I recently met Skye, the lovely person behind Sorry Grandma. This girl has a fabric stash to die for; it was quite literally like something from Pinterest, all beautifully folded and colour sorted, just beautiful. She has regular sales on Facebook and it's definitely worth a look!
So tell me, what have you found this week?
