Wonderful March finds

2 Apr

Another good month of hunting.

First up are these pieces of fabric, not the usual polycotton sheets and pillowcases but pieces of cotton that were all together at the car boot, the usual place, I guess someone had a little stash of fabric for some project or other. They are not huge pieces but big enough for some smaller projects:

Blue/pink floral

Pink and orange floral cotton

This orange gingham is in 2 pieces and had some basting stitches in, someone was planning to make a top but never got any further with it:

My only charity shop find this month a green floral pillowcase:

Look at this next gorgeous item:

Vintage nightdress

Yes a nightdress!  Polycotton, I’d say vintage and in a size 20/22 (UK), and there were 2 of them.  A close up of the print:

I’ve now taken them apart and am remaking them into a Tova top.

This sheet is lovely and unlike any I’ve seen so far:

Floral duvet case

This faux patchwork fabric was given to me by my friend Jo, she found it in a charity shop in Totnes, a pair of Habitat curtains with Grannies Patchwork on the selvedge.  Anyone seen it before?  Any idea of date?

Floral pillowcases:

Yippee, hurrah, can’t quite believe I found this, actually Tobit pulled it out of the pile at the car boot:

Yellow floral vintage sheet

St Michael’s (Marks and Spencer) sheet and pillowcase. I’ve had this print in pink and purple and knew that yellow existed but had never seen it for myself and now I have my very own. A real bonus is that the sheet is in fantastic condition!

How cool is this piece?  A Sanderson curtain, selvedge says ‘Spot and friends’, it’ lovely, there were 2 pieces of this but one was quite damaged so I just got this one:

Some sheets with a lattice print:

Comes in pink too:

So there you go, a whole pile of lovely fabrics all freshly washed and line dried (I love this sunny weather!) ready for sewing with and I have a little plan that involves some of this:

  1. What a fantastic haul. I esp love the white with dark blue flowers (any my funky curtain find of course!)

  2. Wow! You scored a ton of great fabric. I love that sheet with the large sunflowers. I have one just like it, I’ve even made myself a market bag out of it. 🙂
