This Week’s Thrifting Finds – Thrifted Fabric & Linens

Vintage Tablecloth Close-upNot much to report this week on the thrifting front!  I have been hunkered down in my house for most of the week, working on my novel and posting for you lovely readers, so I haven’t had much time to scrounge.  However, I did have time to take a quick peek into the thrift stores on Monday, and I found the following:

Vintage FabricI found a few yards of this great vintage cotton fabric. It is interesting because has a lot of different vertical patterns that alternate. This is just a sample of a few of them. This is another great candidate for pillows.

Vintage TableclothI also found a great rectangular tablecloth. I love the daisy pattern, and it is going to look great on the three season porch in the summer.

And I got both for under $2!

Thrifted Fabric

70's Fabric

Here is some of the great vintage fabric that I got from Goodwill last week.  This is upholstery fabric, and it is a little scratchy, so it is out for pillows.  I wonder what I can do with it?  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Also, I picked up some great blue linen fabric, which is incredibly soft and a wonderful robin’s egg blue.  It was a super deal at $.49!  I just couldn’t pass it up.  I am going to start a quilt soon made of vintage bedsheets, and I thought that would be a great extra fabric to throw in.
