This is a vintage piece of fabric that I'm holding on to, waiting for the right project to come along.
It's a beautiful, sturdy cotton canvas in the most outrageous autumn colours and dates from the 1970s.
It's a vivid combination of brown, orange, black, burnt orange, brick red, muted light green and some white.
It sure is eye-catching!
And I love the close-ups.

365 days of Fashion Ads of the 20th century by Taschen. This book is full of wonderful colourful fashion from the 1900s through to -and including- the 1990s.
Each double page has a full-page ad on one side and a witty quote pertaining to fashion on the other.
It's a fun book to look through on a rainy day - which certainly fits this season- or go through for inspiration.

This is the reverse side of this green floral octagonal bag.
The fabric used is a fairly heavyweight cotton with discreet green stripes in an almost sage hue, with superimposed floral details in a more vivid green.
You can see the floral fabric of the other side peeking through in this picture.
