    Default I found this ......

    Fabric question

    in my stash I found this little picture sewn by my mother right after WW 2. I know she had some US connections. MY question now is this fabric known in the US or does someone know it's name. Just wondering.


    it is a shifty sort of fabric shining depending on the light.

    thanks in advance for any information

    I don't know about the fabric but the embroidery design is similar to those used on beautiful pillowcases and dresser scarves decades ago. Her work is lovely. It's a treasure for sure.

    It is beautiful work. It sort of looks like a crepe fabric. In the way it is fraying especially. It has the sparkle like this piece.

    No I don't think so. It's not as thick and heavy
