Fabric fun

My mother came up this weekend for Logan's birthday, and brought me up some fabric that she had appropriated from her quilt club's yard sale. The quilters didn't want it, since it is all apparel fabric and these pieces were too small (or too odd) for Mom to use so she brought them to me.Pretty awesome, hey?
This one is my favorite! Isn't it cute?! It is a baby cord. I love all the cute little vintage-y animals prancing all over it!! Myra will be getting a jumper out of this. I'll be on the search for some knit in one of those colors to make her a shirt to wear under it. So fun!!

All of the fabrics have that old attic smell. Although I suspect that they come by it honestly, it doesn't appeal, so they are headed for the wash now.

Use some oxi-clean or even a bit of baking soda for the smell if it lingers.

Yes, very awesome fabric. Love the baby cord print. Have fun sewing it.

What a great gift! I love baby cord. I found some cute stuff at Hobby Lobby last week. I can't wait to see what you do with it. Myra is too cute.
