Fabric   Oh my gosh!! I just read about your Spoonflower suggestion with the scanned print. I have several vintage flower sacks in the most beautiful prints, but I only have one sack of each print. Not enough to make an adult sized garment with. I will definitely be trying this! Thank you soooo much! What a wonderful way to preserve history.

  Isn't it?

I had so much fun with the fabric. And trust me, if I can do it, anyone can. It's just a matter of careful cropping along the design!
