Vintage Cut Velvet Fabric Collection


I have been collecting cut velvet fabrics for a number of years now. As I am quite taken with them, you probably have seen me gushing about them here, here, and here  or using them in projects here, here, here, here, here, here, and here.  whew...you get the idea.    (and no, I don't really expect you to visit all the linked posts, it was just to make a point)

Anyway, I have come to the realization that I have to start letting some of them go.  I did sell a few pieces on Etsy earlier this year, but I recently came across 2 more beauties, and it is just way more fabric than I can ever use myself.  One of this summer's finds was a vintage velvet bedspread. Gorgeous and unused, with the original paper label. There were a few storage stains in one corner, which allowed me to cut it up for projects without feeling too guilty.

And the other recent acquisition was several yards of an upholstery fabric in a pretty dusty blue cut velvet with a damask pattern.

So, I have reluctantly started to list many of my selfishly hoarded treasured cut velvets on Etsy.  Of course, a sizable amount will still remain mine...all mine.  lol
And the rest of this post will just be pretty photos of them because I just can't get enough.  :)






Have a great week, everyone!

Thanks girls!
Ah, Glenna, you're a real trooper. :)
I just love the texture! It is strange what we're drawn to collect sometimes, isn't it? lol

Those cut velvets are gorgeous, Kimberly! I've been thinking I need to let some of my barkcloth stash go as well. It's hard, because I love every piece.

I'm so happy to finally visit here today-I've missed seeing what you've been up too:) xx
