Old Fabric!


In an apparant move to lighten the amount of accumulated stuff that we have in our house, my wife was about to throw away a bag of fabric. But, before she did, she made the fatal mistake of askin me if I wanted it. She said it was old, and not very "purty". I didn't say anything, but the thought went through my head, "I'm old and not very pretty either, how long will it be before I'm thrown out"? Well, I kept it. Now what should I do with it? There are several yards of it.

If you don't want to use it yourself, you could sell it on ebay under vintage fabric. Or maybe there's a better place to sell it? Or have a giveaway on your blog.

Ahh apron's would look great made from it... Or like the lady said above you could have another giveaway on your blog, I'm sure there's others like me who would love to have it...

If all else fails you can send it my way and I will come up with something to do with it! It would be fun to come up with ways to use it!

I think it's very purty, but of course I grew up with that fabric.

If a few yards of that fabric would have come to our foster home, every kid in the house would have been wearing a skirt or shorts from it!

I agree that an apron (or other kitchen things, like napkins or placemats) would look cute. You could also fussy-cut it and and use them in a quilt.

And as far as another place to sell vintage fabric, Etsy is great for that.

Never mind Esty, if you decide to sell it, put a price on it and I'll buy it.

I am with Holee on this!! My entire kitchen is done in the 40s and 50s red and whites. I have vintage tableclothes on a quilt rack in there too. I also have a red enamel topped hoosier cabinet and an old Kitchenaid red and white gas stove that is apartment sized. I also have vintage napkins hung up on an old clothes line. It looks like a pencil sharpener and you pulled the string out of it and stretched it across the room to a hook. That is above my window and looks like a curtain. SOOOOO I would say the best thing to do is send them to me for my kitchen!!

But don`t throw it away!!
