Fabric Friday #9: Novelty Bathroom Print


Happy #FabricFriday folks! You snapped up almost all of my Wayne Hemingway fabrics from last week, but I have just two prints left if you're still interested!   

Today I'm warning against the perils of being incapable of walking away from vintage fabric. What happens is that you end up with a novelty bathroom print! I know, right!?!


It's so ugly it's almost cute, but what the heck am I going to do with it you guys? I think that once upon a time it was actually a pair of drapey curtains, but you've seen our bathroom and this print really wouldn't work in there. I don't really fancy a bathroom print dress, but look at all the details...





The other thing is that the fabric is fairly damaged in places, so cutting around it could be tricky.


So, erm...yeah! Should I have walked away from this vintage find or was I remotely sane to bring it home? What shall I do with it please?

  1. What about wash bags or travel laundry bags?

    Like the idea of framing it!

  3. Maybe get some plain white towels and put an accent stripe on using this material?

  4. I think that bags are a good suggestion, or maybe using to line something. I like bizarre prints for linings.

  5. Wash bags definitely my first thought.

  6. I would make a cute apron, or maybe the pocket on an apron. But I like the idea of wash bags too!

  7. I think you were sane to bring it home - I'd probably have done the same, but then would probably also have been left wondering what to do with it! I like the idea of wash bags!

  8. Why not sit on it for a while, sometimes the right project is just around the corner

  9. A bathrobe would be good - or I like the suggestion above of a make up/toiletry bag.

  10. I think a simple Roman blind for your bathroom window (like the one in GBSB book 1) would be fab and quirky. Failing that, a lining for a laundry basket? :-)
