    I'm not sure how old this fabric is but it is 35" wide

    there is 4 different fabrics here, if anybody has an idea of how old they could be

    The red/blue white on the bottom middle. I don't think that is very old I've seen that before or possible something similar to that. But I could be wrong. :) Nice looking fabric. I really like the blue with the black and white flowers. :)

    Great find. Love the vintage fabrics. I really don't know what year these are from, I would guess 50's-60's. I do know that in the 60's the fabric was 35" wide

    I know that the width of fabrics changed in the mid 60's from 36" to 42-44"

    Nice stuff...

    I love the black/white and yellow. I have been collecting those colors.

    The middle red, white & blue flower one looks like fabric I had rom nineteen forgetten. My mother told me that it was "fed sack frabric from when she was a girl. She is now in her 80's. I made an apron out of it years ago & used it till it fell apart.

    it doesn't feel any different from regular fabric though, I do have some stuff that has almost like a waxy finish to it but when I hand washed a small piece the finish came off, has anyone ever seen anything like that?
