eat your veggies

vintage veggies

Don't you just love this fabric? I spotted it on eBay and thought it would be perfect for the pot holders I seem to be making a lot of these days. The color palate is pretty simple—just yellow, white, red, and green on black—but it has a surprising variety of vegetables. Yellow squash, tomatoes, green peppers, corn, radishes, beets, peas, and even artichokes. That's a vegetable you don't see much on fabric!

This fabric wasn't cheap, but it's so cute and also 2 yards in length. It's hard to find yardage in vintage fabrics and I wasn't going to pass it up.

What a cute print! Reminds me of those plaster fruits and veg. which hung on so many kitchen walls back in the fifties(not that I remember,of course).

Mary, my grandmother had a row of those plaster veggies across the top of her kitchen cabinets—I still have a couple of them around here somewhere.
