The Sew Weekly Sewing Circle

Hi Eveyone,

 

I am quite excited about Mena's little post on using craft or quilting fabric.

 

I wanted to share the above link to my friend Kesenya's blog.  She has used this craft fabric to make a vintage inspired skirt -  I think it looks fantastic! 

 

Honestly I find it so frustrating that vintage fabric is becoming so scarce in Australia, or was never available in such plentiful as it seems to be in the US - I will now just buy curtain/upholstry fabric if it looks close enough!  Oh and quiting fabric too!

 

Sorry for the rant

Ho ho, not so plentiful here in the US either, in fact you really have to look pretty hard to find good vintage. I love Rebecka's fabric choices!

I'm wondering if there is a stash of vintage fabric in peoples basements and attics and all of a sudden there will be a wave of goodness out there. Actually I think it's all in San Francisco and Mena is finding it!
I'm like Rebecka - I use quite a lot of "juvenile" prints in craft cottons as well.  Cartoon elephants, bugs, flowers, polka dots, little Hello Kitty prints, you name it, I'll use it.  So much fun!  (Although I do find they work best with 1950's style dresses.  The busy-ness of the prints can easily obscure the details of 1940's style outfits, sadly....)
 Me too Kat.. Just love all the little  cartoon bugs,flowers,hearts dots,etc.. Makes for Happy Sewing..
