Friday Featured Fabric

vintage boy scout flannel cotton fabric

A lot of people ask me where I find my vintage fabrics?  Some come from my own collection of my Grandmother's stash, others are sometimes thrifted, but the best is when some very kind person says "hey, you want four bags of vintage fabric I can't stand looking at anymore"...that day was last Saturday.  Thankfully, one of my wonderful friends couldn't keep storing her mom's stash...and she had just combined it with more vintage items belonging to her aunt.  When someone says they don't want fabric, I happily accept whatever the condition!  So, basically Christmas came early!  Tons and tons of barkcloth, chintz, and just this little piece of flannel...that I've chosen as Friday Featured Fabric.

This is a fat quarter sized remnant; featuring great images of boy scouts camping with their logo and mottos interspersed.  I showed it to one of my shop vendors and sewing buddies, Darla, and she thought it would be great cut up in appliques.  I see it as one side of a camping pillow?  What would you make??

Available here.
