I made soon-to-be-born Baby's first winter blanket - the backing is soft ivory flannel, the middle is vintage wool, the top layer is of these birds, bound with hand-stitched ivory blanket binding. I hope Baby's eyes are delighted.
I machine washed and dried this fabric first, in warm water. My machine drains into a sink, so I know the fabric was clean, and no color was lost. I don't miss the 'new fabric' slightly shiny, stiff chemicals at all. I didn't calculate the exact shrinkage, because I could afford to lose a few inches - we know cotton shrinks - and I gained material for a washable blanket. I ironed the fabric before sewing.
The greenery is pleasing and soothing, and the little birds are very exciting.
Although I only needed one yard, I had to get two, because of the way the fabric came off the bolt - the lady was nice enough to check. With the leftovers, I made a pleated valance, featuring a bird every six inches. I didn't use starch, and the pleats stayed crisp. This fabric would be lovely for curtains in a child's room, or pillow shams and a duvet cover.

This fabric is timeless. I feel like it would've fit perfectly in my elegant grandmother's home just as well as it would the Anthropologie catalogue. It's soft, flows, with just the right amount of whimsy. I love it!
