    I love the animal fabric! It is completely adorable. I’ve had a thing lately about buying fabric (not using yet, just buying) that has animals on it, and that one is super cute.

    OMG. Those first two are killing me! Okay. All three of them are wonderful. Sigh. I need to make getting to Salvation Army more of a priority.

    ooooh, that last fabric! that was my childhood blanket. I think it was a sheet … on one side was that and the other had the cutest print of dogs and cats with the best piece of another blanket inside. I still have it even though it’s mostly in shreds. I will do something with it someday … the weight of that blanket was perfect but I’m afraid to use just any fabric because it won’t be as worn and soft. Lucky you …

    Gorgeous! I can’t wait to see what you make with them. And how I love to hear you say thrifted. I started my blog, Thriftygoodness, inspired waaay back in the day by Thriftcraft. Many years and wonderful friends later, I’m still here. Cheers!

    My grandma made me a blanket with the third floral print sheet with a pink sheet for the backing when I was a little girl. She hand sewed it, with the neatest and tiniest stitches. I saved it and am going to use it as the backing for the duvet cover I am making for my daughter’s bed.

    I was delighted to see the animal print fabric. My Mom made me a pillow case (I think she made it) out of that fabric when I was very little. So almost 40 years ago. I still have it.

    Ooo, ooo, ooo! That last sheet was what my mom made my nursery curtains out of! They must have made a lot of that pattern 🙂 and they must be sturdy, too. I still have them and saw a cute dress online made out of them. I used them for my youngest’s nursery. She’s now five and will use them for a dress for her and her older sister this summer, I hope. I have a LOT of them but my big boys are probably not too interested. 😉 Perhaps something for my niece, too? Oh, and yes, that’s 40 this year. Definitely vintage. What will you be making?

    I thrifted that same last sheet with the diamond pattern. It was just so cheerful. I plan on making some pillow shams with it for a bedroom decorated in shades of white, pink and green.
