mom's scraps--part two

The fun of going through my mother's scraps is seeing the evidence of what she used the fabric for.
It is the negative space of cutting out patterns. My memories of these garments are with more faded fabric from them being used for several children as hand-me-downs and multiple washings and line drying in the sun. It is good to see the fabric in its glory and see what attracted my mother to it in the first place.

Thanks for showing the fabric and taking the time to photograph it.

I wore many of these and recall loving the print of the oval figures with legs. I never got to wear that, just loved looking at the scraps and imagining the creatures in real life. I do remember the summer butterfly print dress. Didn't we all have those?
