I found this large piece of folded fabric a few weeks ago at a garage sale. I payed the full $5 that the lady asked for, although I was still feeling guilty for buying it - I'm used to paying small amounts for small amounts of fabric. Then, I got back to the car, and I really looked at how much fabric was actually there... at least 5 yards! So, for $1/yard, I'm definitely not feeling guilty any more!
Any ideas on how to date it?
It's such a great old print - it feels different than the cotton you can buy now-a-days. But perhaps I'm wrong and it's just a reproduction print?
Anyways, I cut right into it! I couldn't wait to use it! I made a tote bag first (tutorial here - although I did line it with the same fabric since it is a cotton instead of the bag material I used in the tutorial). I've also cut out an apron pattern, so as soon as I get done with a few necessary projects, I'll have a matching apron, haha!
