Adoring all things vintage, retro and downright quirky

Tag Archives: childrens fabric

Every so often you come across a company whose products take your breath away – well, welcome to my recent breath thief, the Remakeables (thanks to my sister Shiv for sharing this one with me!)

I could barely contain my excitement when I clicked on the link and saw the swathe of beautiful kitsch fabrics and super-cute buttons that they stock, and the prices aren’t half bad – of course, it is a US company (sheesh!) but hey, I’m getting used to that!

Here is a selection of the fabrics that I have already ordered:

 

Origin: Japan
Length: 113cm
Prices start with 1 unit=25cm – £3.17

Oh so lovely Bambi-inspired orange (my fave colour) fabric – planning to make some cushions in this one…

I can’t get enough of text fabric, so these green and orange based images and newsprint on beige cotton fabric tick all the boxes…

Super summery, these lovely, bright and colourful flowers on medium-weight cotton blend fabric make me want to take off my shoes and run barefoot through a meadow – mind the thistles!

And how about these rather super robot buttons – and the good-enough-to-eat apple buttons at the top of this post – there is a remarkable range of buttons and other trimmings to choose from too! Now shoo! You’ve had a taster, go and see for yourself.

Shhhhh! I have stumbled across the most delicious fabric websites and can happily declare my love for Japanese prints! I found a website called reprodepot.com which is a really good resource for quirky prints and for bag makers like myself, will be a really good place to snap up textiles that others will coo and ah over but not be able to find! Don’t tell anyone, ok?

Just scroll down for more beautiful images…

 Flower power – with their retro influence, these will make the most beautiful and eye catching cushions. I plan to buy a few yards and get some summery influenced bags stitched together too.

Yet more flowers: these remind me of the wallpaper in my old Sindy house. Really kitsch.

And the baby blue cloud fabric would make the most fabulous pillow cases….dreamy.
