Vintage Fabric

Anyone who knows me (even the tiniest bit) knows of my love for fabric.  Now some fabrics I have developed an appreciation for but the fabric that really makes me swoon is of the vintage variety.  Many designers have produced reproduction vintage fabric--of which I own yards and yards.  I count it a real treasure however to actually find a truly vintage piece of fabric.  There is just something about the sweet softness of vintage fabric that makes me smile.  Over the past several weeks I have had the opportunity to "treasure hunt" at a few estate sales and flea markets.  I was doing a bit straightening and reorganizing in my sewing room today ---mainly because I almost couldn't find my sewing machine due to the mess :)  I realized that because of my "treasure hunting"  I now have quite a nice collection of vintage fabric.  I thought I would take a minute to share some of my favorites with you. 

I really am excited to create something fun with this sweet fabric.  Perhaps a little doll or something using a new pattern I just purchased.  I will keep it a secret so you will have to come back and visit with me again soon :)
