So, you liked that last post, did you? I never thought I would get all giddy about fabric and linens. I still don't like or understand a lot of it - but give me a bright happy tablecloth or a brightly colored feedsack and I am all OH YEA BABY.
On to the rest of the pile (except there is a big thick stack of vintage feedsack quilt pieces and a bag of millinery flowers to sort. To be continued.....:)
Very vintage tiny kid's baseball pants and a week little hat. I can picture this framed with an old ball and bat or glove, but will I ever do that? Oh, probably not. But, maybe someone will.
A vintage child's dress. I had hoped this would fit Hazel, but is it was too big. Love that fabric though.
Twenty one hankies. I had sworn off hankies - but when twenty-two hankies present themselves to you at once, you do not say NO.
My pickin' buddy found these and put them in my pile. Now I feel guilty - if you want them back say so OKAY? Aren't they just the cutest? "Nut Brown Maiden" isn't a song I know. Do you? These would also be darling framed for a kid's room. I think I will frame the "Auld Lang Syne" for my New Year's decorations. UNLESS YOU WANT THEM BACK.
Linen place mats.
A ticking pillow cover with a zipper.
Napkins. I wish I could sew (actually I have no desire to learn to sew) - I would make some pillows out of these.
Patchwork pillow cover.
Sweet tea towel.
Card table tablecloth with a napkin motif in the corners.
I think this is called a bolster? It is open on both ends to slide a long pillow through - or maybe even two pillows? I do love that fabric.
Heart shaped pin cushion.
Two pristine PINK rose pillowcases. These might crawl out of the TO SELL pile and onto my bed. But, I can't be certain.
And a feedsack apron destined to be repurposed as the bib has been cut off. I had to rescue that fabric though.
Lots of vintage goodness. I guess I didn't say so in the last post, but most of you guessed that the tablecloths are KEEPERS. About once a year I cull a few out when I add a few. But to add that many at one time was pure joy! But, I will TRY to cull out a few. Or at least get them all out and look at them and refold them and cram them back into the shelves. Yes, I think I can do that. ;D
