Here’s the vintage fabric I found. I’m so excited about it! I love the colors and of course the cool 60s design – the striped houses and spotted chickens. It’s a heavyweight cotton, the printing along the edge is hard to read but I think it says "shrunketized a color tested fabric". There are 9 yards of it! I was thinking I’d keep a couple yards for myself and offer up the rest for swap? Anyone interested? If so email me what you’re thinking at hillarylang at gmail dot com. I could cut 1, 1/2 or 1/4 yard pieces. It’s kinda grungy though. I’m going to throw it in the washer now. Hopefully it will come out good as new.
UPDATE: the wash is done and it did come out good as new. yay! I’ve received some emails and I still need to go through them all – we’re on the go today – but I think there is still plenty left to go around so shoot me an email if you’re interested. One thing I should have mentioned is that I’m hoping to swap for raw materials this time around – fabric, buttons, trim, etc. vintage and unique materials. I know everyone makes really cool things and I’d love to get my greedy hands on all of it but right now I need to reinvigorate my crafting supplies!
Another Update: All gone! thanks everyone who emailed! I’m trying to do math and email everyone back now.
