I love using vintage materials when I create, especially since some of my designs are vintage inspired. I love our little thrift store here in town, I am lucky enough to find awesome fabrics at least once a week. On Saturday, I walked out of there with an entire bag full for only $1.59! You just can’t beat that, and I have found some of my favorite prints there.
The floral print I used for this dress and a shirt.
This purple knit floral fabric is one of my favorite finds ever. I’ve made quite a few things with this remnant that I got for 50 cents.
I also love to browse ebay and etsy, and have found excellent deals on amazing fabrics on both sites. I was browsing etsy for vintage fabrics yesterday, and came across quite a few that made me giggle with delight. This very unusual print in particular though really caught my eye, and it’s stretch knit (my favorite material). It’s very unique, and I love the retro colors.
This fabric is listed at the etsy store historicallydestash, but not for long. 😉 This etsy seller has lots of amazing vintage fabrics that made me go ooo and ahhh.
Here’s another of the retro prints they have listed:
