More Fun 70's Fabrics

After bringing home the cute 70's fabrics a few weeks ago, I couldn't stop thinking of the stacks I had left behind. So, I went back and got some more!

Most are novelty children's prints and so fun!

The red is a heavy weight canvas with calico print toadstools and turtles and the other has jade green and yellow ladybugs and butterflies and is a lovely rayon or rayon/cotton blend by J.Manes co.
And then we have some bright neon pink.

The tulip and daisy fabric is a semi-sheer dimity? And my favorite of the bunch...Fairy Tale barkcloth!

It is a light weight cotton barkcloth by THC Hawaiian Textiles. It has the cutest scenes of every fairytale and nursery rhyme I've ever heard of, plus some. Look at that adorable Alice in Wonderland square above!...and the GingerBread Man! Too cute.  :)
Look for these and other great vintage fabrics on the website. 
I'm tackling a painting project in the basement, today, so hopefully I'll have some before and after pics soon.  Have a great week, everyone!

I'm so glad you went back. Love the toadstools and turtles and that bark cloth is sweet. Painting, ugh! I'm sure it'll be worthwhile though.

Aren't they a hoot! The saying that you don't regret what you buy, but what you leave behind is SO true! Good for you for going back for those terrific fabrics!
