We are nearing the end of my "Shelf of the Week" series with the brown shelf. I've already blogged about the reorganization of my pink, blue, yellow, red & purple, black, green, and cream vintage fabrics. The only remaining groups are gray and white, but today I will highlight some of the fabrics on my brown shelf.
My browns were getting mixed in with the nearby grays and greens. I actually got rid of a couple old and decrepit pieces - which proves I can part with my fabric... some of it, anyway.
Ahh, take a breath -- so much better!
There were still some interesting pieces like this old narrow yardage with bursts of turquoise and pink roses over larger silver shadowy outlines of flowers.
A heavy chintz.
A 50s cowboy print cotton.
This is an unusual eyelet with 2" amoeba shapes.
A fun 50s barkcloth with touches of gold and turquoise.
A crisp, heavy cotton featuring a Jacobean style print rounds out some of the fabrics on my brown shelf. Two weeks left of "Shelf of the Week." After that I have drawers, bins and boxes full of hankies, laces, trims, ribbons and buttons - but don't worry, I won't go on and on. It's time to start showing you what I'm makin' with this stuff! Happy sewing!
