Item details

One yard of 58" hand-dyed 100% cotton (36" x 58+") that was hand-dyed using low water immersion techniques. Each piece is individually hand-dyed so no two are alike!

There is enough material for a whole cloth crib-sized quilt or lap-sized quilt top; imagine it as a cafe curtain, pillowcase or toddler's dress ! Use the fabric for any application that you would use a high quality cotton: napkins, bandannas, art quilts, pot holders, coasters, crazy quilts, placemats, stuffed toys, tablecloths, pillow covers...let your imagination be your guide!

All hand-dyed fabrics are washed multiple times in very hot water to avoid any issues with bleeding onto other fabrics, however I recommend you wash it again in extra hot water with your favorite detergent before sewing. The fabric is already pre-shrunk, so you are buying a full yard of fabric that is ripped on the true grain...it can be blocked.

I hand dye this high quality fabric that comes from one of the last mills left in the USA, with fiber reactive dyes, also made in the USA.


FAQs

I purchase 60 inch wide fabric from a mill in the United States, and rip it into 1 or 2 meter lengths to allow for shrinkage during the dyeing process. The result is that the units are slightly longer than a yard (usually around 37 inches) and the width falls around 58 inches. Because I rip the fabric into the standard units for sale, you can block the fabrics for accurately constructed quilts and home goods. NO CROOKED prints or drapes that hang at an odd angle with the goods you purchase from Duchess Froufrou!

All fabric has been soaked for hours (usually a couple of days) and washed in VERY hot water to remove residual dyes. Once in awhile, some colors will let go of additional color after a month and therefore I recommend washing the fabric again with your favorite detergent before combining with lighter colored fabrics. The sewing buttons I sell were manufactured between 1900 and the late 1950s, before the commercial washing machines we know today were invented. Even though the glass sewing buttons may claim to be "machine washable" I recommend removing them or wrapping them and turning your garment inside out before washing them in a modern washing machine.

I am happy to entertain custom orders for both larger quantities of vintage sewing buttons and hand-dyed fabrics. I cannot match colors of existing fabrics, as there are too many variables in the fabrics and chemistry, but can dye fabrics to coordinate, or dye fabrics if you select the dye colors. I am happy to hem fabrics or construct goods for you from the fabrics you purchase as long as you supply the pattern and accurate measurements.

Many of the sewing buttons I feature are available in large quantities at a discounted price...especially in shell (mother-of pearl or ocean pearl) shirt sizes.
