I have deduced that red and purple must not have been popular colors for fabrics in the 30s, 40s, and 50s. I would have bought red and purple as readily as I did any other color, yet I don't have a lot of red and purple vintage fabrics. They occupy almost the shortest shelf of my vintage fabrics... but there are some goodies. (Note to my sister: time to yawn and switch to one of your foodie blogs. Fabric pictures coming.)
Here's the red/purple shelf before.
Here's the red/purple shelf after. Not much purple at all.
But still, there were some goodies.
Not much barkcloth,
but here's a nicely textured Oriental themed oldie from probably the 30s.
I get the feeling this juvenile print is really old.
I find the bunnies disturbing in a "Chuckie" sort of way.
Love this border print yardage... about 34" wide.
A beautiful damask.
Some fun tablecloths with red motifs.
Gotta love the lobster tablecloth!
Can't forget our purples.
This is a beautiful border print and judging from the ripped out stitching,
I think this was actually a feed sack.
I know this is just a sheet,
but take a look at those gorgeous medallions and that tatting.
Next week's shelf: black or yellow.
