{Fabric Friday} a punch of vintage color...

I've been on another vintage textile search again lately. It's the first of the year & I need to stock up my studio with some new finds to use for ideas that I have. I'm craving the bright, bold colors of the '50's, '60's, &'70's to brighten up these dreary weather days. On one of my late night searches, I ran across Jane Foster's website and I instantly became a fan of her work with textiles.

Jane is a designer from the UK who has combined her love of drawing, screen printing & vintage fabrics from the '50'- 70's to create gorgeous cushions, totes, dolls, tea towels, & more. I love her use of cheerful designs and her vintage fabric collection is amazing!

Oh, what I would give to get a peek into her fabric stash! It must be pretty terrific. I admit, I  bought a cool vintage cushion so I could have some of her happy vintage textiles in our home. If you are a vintage fabric junkie like me, you might want to check out her blog and her shops here & here. They will definitely give you a punch of cheerful color!  Happy Fabric Friday!  {all photos property of Jane Foster


  1. Have you seen her recent work on her 'scandinavian-style' donna cover!

    I'm liking it ... I'm trying to replicate with some Moomin fabric ... I'm not being too successful.

    Ms Foster is extremely talented!

  2. Yep, I did see her quilt she is working on. It's beautiful! I know, her work makes me happy. :) I was glad to have stumbled on it. Have a nice weekend Carmel!

  3. What a brilliant post! I adore the bright colors. So wonderful to brighten up a modern home with just a couple of these... could base a room around them. xo

  4. These remind me of my early childhood! Especially that orange floral fabric. Wow, now all I need to see are those avocado coloured kitchen appliances. hehe! Loving those bunny plushies.. so which one did you get?
