This past weekend I was visiting my in-laws and my mother-in-law surprised me with an amazing gift.
The second I saw this gorgeous vintage suitcase I was jumping for joy….seriously, how could one NOT be? This suitcase has many a story to tell to be sure….
It’s beautifully worn and rusted…and do you see that beautiful stitching? I mean…just gorgeous!
But the best was yet to come….take a look at the treasures inside….
Oh yes…fabric! But not just any old fabric. Old fabric, curtains and sheets which have been hidden away for many years.
Let’s take a closer look, shall we?
And this nautical print, at least a yard, with such detail to be found within every inch. The colors still bright throughout the print even though the yellow edges give a hint to its age.
And if that isn’t enough, take a look at this fun winter print. There are at least two yards of this fabric…it is just screaming to be made into something for the upcoming holidays!
And check this out…wagons, plows and eagles…red, white and blue taking front and center in this print.
Can you stand it? I sure can’t. I know, typically you will not find these types of prints featured on my blog…I’m more of a bright color, modern type of girl, but how can one not just go crazy over a score like this.
So onto the big question…what do I make out of this? It needs to be something that does this fabric the justice it so deserves and has been waiting oh so long for!
