French vintage ....

 March has arrived, the days are longer, the sun is shining again, and it feels like spring could be  just around the corner!

This is my French vintage cushion cover .....

using a graphic from The Graphics Fairy.  I ironed some freezer paper to a piece of  ivory Kona , trimmed it to 8½x11, and printed the graphic directly onto the fabric.  After removing the freezer paper I soaked the printed fabric in some vinegar for a few minutes (and no ink ran), dried it, pressed it, and began sewing with dropcloth.  How easy is that!?!?!?!

And speaking of vintage ........ hmm, looks like it was wash day.  ^^



Do you remember the bouquet of fabric that I  posted about here - well, here it is in all it's beauty pressed and folded for you to see  ....

Lovely pillow Kate.
And congrats on your win - I saw it on the blog you won it from - they're great prints - seems to me they are not your usual style?
Enjoy them all!x
