Magpie Monday - Sew Retro


Look what I found at the charity shop this week....


Loads of retro 70's fabric for £2!
But wait...
There's more...

Original bark cloth curtains,
I reckon from the 50's judging by the design.

Aren't they gorgeous?

  6. Oooh LOVE the curtains!

    I got some barkcloth curtains a few weeks back. Unpicked them and took the lining off as I wanted to make a skirt from them and it revealed the selvedge edge with the designer's name and pattern on, which I was able to look up. Maybe yours will too? x
