Vintage Fabrics!

My sweet, salesman husband has sold all the remaining unsold hand bags I made for the Etsy Shop to men who needed Valentine's Day gifts! So, I wanted to show you some of my plans for new hand bags and purses.

The top piece is a vintage fabric called "Rose Cliff". The other fabrics I purchased to coordinate with it. I have quite a bit of the Rose Cliff fabric and plan to use one or two of each of the other fabrics with it on handbags. I have been learning how to make the Shabby Chic Rag Quilt Handbags and the Rose Cliff fabric would be perfect for this kind of project because it "fringes" very easily. I think the type of fabric would be called Bark Cloth.

These two are two more of the vintage bark cloth fabrics I have. These flowers are carnations. I'm still planning how to use them, but I think they would make beautiful bags!!!

This one is a small piece of "tea cup" fabric I found in my stash and a piece of coordinating dark blue I purchased to go with it. There's just enough for one hand bag and I have a plan in mind for it.

Happy Valentine's Day again!

Lovely fabrics... I love vintage fabrics. Can't wait to see your new pocketbooks. My brother told me he bought one with pink flamingos from a lady in his office, who is also making bags. I'm happy that you are so successful with your sales!

That is so wonderful that your dear hubby sold the rest of your bags, how exciting! said...

I also love the vintage material, actually anything vintage for that matter.

Sounds like your husband is a great salesman! See's an opportunity and goes with it! I'm sure there are some very happy wife's with a wonderful valentines day gift!
