I was stopped in my tracks today by this gorgeous 1950s fairy tale fabric.


Unfortunately it is covering a mattress in a vintage cot that I saw in a local thrift shop. It looked in pretty good condition, I wonder if I could remove the fabric and use it for something else?


Hmm... I LOVE vintage children's story books, and 1950s fabrics, so this is a dream of a print for me! I might not be able to resist.

I say get it! I once saw a vintage cot mattress covered with a vintage Noddy print, in plastic, I didn't get it, always a regret... but then I am Noddy obsessed...
