More goodies from the Textile Center Garage Sale:
Do you remember the gown I made for Z? I had more of that style fabric, but with a lot of dark blue in it, but when one of her teachers at school seemed so disappointed that there was nowhere for her to buy it, I felt compelled to give away the blue. But this was a five dollar find at the first table at the sale! The same fabric, but in pink!
That wasn't the only vintage find:
Vintage terry cloth:
There's more of the blue/green than the blue/pink. I was thinking swimsuit coverups for the girls? My friend suggested that I do the hood out of one and the body out of the other. They aren't really matchy-matchy, but I think it could work.
These were in the bin labeled "Vintage Japanese." I liked the orange one on the right and some of the others are fun, but some are stained and/or not so cute.
There's very little of the bright floral on the left, but it was just so pretty. The shag fabric on the end is just a roll of scraps, but I know there's something that I need to make with it. I love that shaggy fabric...the roll has black, purple, and orange. It is my assumption that someone made a Halloween project out of it.
Velvets...and some mermaid tail fabric:
That's more of a rose than a red. There's a decent amount of the purple, though the person who packaged it up did so with masking tape, so I was left with some purple blackheads:
Grrrr...it just pulled all the little velvet bits out. It didn't ruin the fabric and I was just going to use it for dress-up clothes anyway, but still...bummer.
I love shimmer and shine. (Speaking of...have you seen that show? It's got a pretty catchy theme song.)
Okay...It turns out, there will be a Part Three post for the last batch of my haul.
