Fabric Mayhem

Dorothy Draper Dropped In…

A little less than 3 yards of vintage Dorothy Draper fabric fell into my life the other day.

Don’t you love that kind of rain?

The thought of taking a pair of scissors to this is…paralyzing. I think I’ll make some high res. scans of it and maybe make some stationery items for myself. One day it may become a headboard cover (I can pin & tuck the fabric…no scissors!) but I’ll have to wait till the kittens are older and have stopped sharpening their nails on anything & everything.

Tucker isn’t impressed. He was all “Dorothy who?”.

He’s such a little ham…loves to have his picture taken.

I picked up the stuff to turn those clip on earrings into posts…lunch time project for tomorrow! Sure hope the crazy glue doesn’t leak in my purse…

    Oh. Tucker + Dorothy Draper Fabric = me almost turning kitty lover.

    Maybe you should have squares of the fabric matted & framed?

    Of course I’d cut into it in a heartbeat and make a mint! If people around here knew who Dorothy Draper was.

    I don’t know if the pattern is still protected by copyright or public domain or what the rules are, but there is a company that will custom print fabric for you. It is called Spoonflower and I hope to order some someday.
