Fabrics for making with

Vintage scrap packs £4-50; vintage furnishing fabrics wad £10 by Penny Baker for Handmade Happiness.

My friend Penny Baker brought in lots of lovely vintage fabric packs yesterday. New to the shop are these wads of old furnishings fabrics from the 30s,40s and 50s. Ten pieces to a pack, all different; I particularly like the yellow fabric shown above.

When I used to sell at the Country Living magazine shows on a regular basis I found that these vintage fabric packs by Penny sold brilliantly. To people who make cushions, or for patchwork, or small sewing projects. Once a bride-to-be bought my entire stock because she wanted to make a heart to tie onto each of her guests chairs with them.
