Friday Funday - Vintage Fabric Giveaway

Hello Ladies!  We are gonna stir things up a bit and offer some beautiful vintage fabric today that also includes matching vintage trim and a matching vintage 24 inch zipper.

Another difference is that our giveaway is going to start running a full 7 days to enter.  So next Friday, October 17th, I will announce the winner and put up the next contest.  I was getting emails asking why I was only running the contests for a short time, so I hope this will please you!

Now, back to this fabric.  I purchased this fabric from an elderly lady last Summer.  I would call it a textured ponte knit, but I am no fabric expert.  It seems to be a blend, but I didn't do a burn test because I don't want to waste even a tiny bit.  The fabric is medium to heavy weight.

There are so many cute things you could make with this lot.  The fabric is a deep turquoise blue and bright white with a funky diamond pattern.  According to the lady I bought it from (she had the trim and zipper folded inside the fabric), she had planned to make herself a sleeveless dress way back in the 1960s out of this fabric.  You wouldn't believe all the great fabric she had from various decades.

So here is what we are working with...the fabric is 55 inches wide and there is 2 yards of it.






So, if you want to put your name in the hat for this great giveaway, just leave a comment below letting me know what you would make if this was to end up in your mailbox.

  5. I love this color! I would cover a set of pillow forms for my daughter's new couch in her new apartment! She wants to be able to switch out the colors to keep things "interesting". What a kid!
