Three Reasons Why I Love Vintage Fabrics?

New in my Etsy Shop - 5" vintage fabric squares
Why do so many of us never lose our love of vintage fabrics? The answer would probably be a little different for each of us. So I'll just give you three of mine and you can add to the list by dropping a comment below.

First, is because they're FUN! My favorite cotton fabrics come from the decades between 1930 and 1960. So many of these designs were colorful, cheerful, and soft.

Second, is because they tell a mysterious STORY of times before our own experience or remind us of treasured times in our own past.

Third, is the ROMANTIC appeal, especially if I'm using vintage apparel in my designs. I can't help but think about the person who might have worn the item. Why did they choose it for their wardrobe? Where did they wear it? Was it a gift from someone special in their life? A ticket of imagination comes with each vintage garment I use when designing new projects.
