Fabric finds: folky springtime prints

folky spring fabrics

{(1) vintage cotton from cerlina, 45″ x 68″, $17.00, (2) vintage cotton from owlbotagain 2.5y x 37″, $32.00, (3) liberty of london tana lawn from Purl, $38.00/yard}

These prints scream spring to me. There is something folky and fairytale-ish about them, like a forest just starting to bloom. They would all make such lovely dresses or blouses for the coming months. I think the second one would look especially lovely with some bright pink or green piping.
