    :D :D :D My DH arrived home today loaded down with these fabrics given to me by his aunt who had gotten them from a friend of her daughter's. These are what they shared with me. They are obviously very old, but in good condition. Can anyone tell me the era(or eras) they are from? I am thinking of making bags with the big flowered prints.

    Retro fabric especially the big flowers. Looks like stuff I started to sew with in the 70's or 80's

    Great colors!
    I too, say 70's. That's when those BIG flower prints were "in". I made many pairs of shorts out of that sort of printy fabric. Back when I could WEAR shorts like that. lol

    I concur (70's) with the minor exception of the daisy on blue fabric which I think could have been like 66 or 67. I swear I had a dress out of it when I was in 6 or 7th grade...
