Fabric Friday Flowers

23 comments
April sent me this beautiful package this week from April's 30's Sewing Shop. April sells Singer Featherweight machines, accessories and lovely fabrics.Look how great she wrapped my parcel. I love the brown paper wrapping, just like if I'd gone back in time and shopped at a vintage mercantile store.
I've been looking high and low for these specific fabrics. They are kind of the "lost" fabrics from Lecien's New Old fabric line. By lost I mean next to impossible to find.
I did have a piece of this particular piece but I have loved working with it so much that I was happy to get more. I have been using it and have plans for designing more with it.Isn't it so pretty in pink, too? It really is a lovely weight of fabric and very closely resembles authentic feedsack.
This piece from the line I have really not seen anywhere in the US. I really love bows and this fabric is so vintage and sweet.
This print has been MIA as well. How can you not smile and enjoy these fabrics? I think they are really some of my all time favorites.

Love the vintage look fabrics! I wish I could design fabrics as I'd draw inspiration from the old quilts that I have. And then what fun to create new ones from those fabrics!

There is just very little that makes me as happy as getting fabric in the mail. (Got some today! Yippee!)

They really are beautiful. I love the one you said you can't really find in the U.S. Gorgeous! And I must say the package wrapping is fabulous. Love the old-fashioned look.

I love this fabric. The Lecien Old New Collection 30's just disappeared off the retail planet, didn't it? I am making a baby quilt with it for my soon to be born granddaughter. I love the fabric and wish I had more for a pillow and some accessories.
