    I grew up reading Dick and Jane and have been collecting Dick and Jane fabrics for the last few months. (Been buying them off ebay when it's a really good deal.)

    Now I have FQs and 1/2 yard pieces and yard pieces. (I'm attaching a pic of what I have so far.) I'm thinking I could do a quilt, maybe a tote bag. Any suggestions of things you've seen with this fabric?

    Thanks for your input!

    It's very cute fabric and I do remember reading those books over and over again because we didn't have access to all of the books our children and grandchildren have. The colors are great and it would make a very cute quilt.

    Good old Dick and Jane! If I had it I'd make cushions for a kids' book nook.

    I made my DGD a pillowcase with this fabric. (middle bottom row) She loves the pictures and the words.

    I love Dick and Jane prints.
    Where's the link for the Ebay seller, please..?

    At one time I used to collect Dick and Jane fabrics but used up all my stash.
    Hobby Lobby has it sometimes, but it's like a needle in a haystack and I'm sure Hancock of Paducahs may have some too, but not the older prints.

    Thanks!
