Vintage Thursday Thingie: Vintage Fabrics from the 1960s

These are some fabrics I've collected from the 1960s. Check out the hot pink and lime green! Aren't they in style now?












Here's an art book from 1965. Even the colors used to decorate the cover, shout 1960s.



Two weeks ago, I showed some vintage embroidery transfers. Here are two potholders I made using the transfers.

On the back, I used one of the 60s fabrics, even though the transfer designs are earlier.

These are too cute! love the vintage fabric, and I was thinking the same thing, that the color combinations are back in today! Your potholders are so cute! You did a great job. Have a great week, and Happy VTT.

Love your vintage fabrics - Back then they were considered so MODERN - today, 'Retro'! COOL!

Bea said...

Oh my, I guess I'm still to close to the 60s. I remember wearing A-line dresses that I made out of fabric like that. I thought I was just to cool.lol

I think I had a dress with that paisley material. And it is so back in vogue. Cute potholders and nice way to use the cloth.

I LOVE lime! I have a favorite scarf in the color and am almost sad that it is warming up too much to wear it!

LV said...

Since I have a love for quilts, I can just see some this fabric used for one.

Colorful fabric..., so 1960's mid century modern.
I like the potholders best. I love embroidery. Take care.

Miri, I love your fabric. The paisley is my favorite. Cute pot holders. I think the 60s fabric on the back was a good choice.

mannequin said...

Oh dangit! Why can't I embroider? The back of mine always looks like roadwork. Under construction.
Those are just precious Miri!

Miri, I've often thought today's fashion was a throwback to the 60's! Your post just proves it! Love the potholders. Remember my potholder "holder"? It does appear to be crayon at least on the poppy flower. The leaves are applique. Very pale green in a very thin fabric. Thanks for coming by, Ruby
