Mushrooms From the Oughts

In looking for vintage mushroom fabric this week, I came across tons of contemporary mushrooms too. I dare say they are more popular now than they were in their 60s-70s heyday.

Mushroom City by Alexander Henry — discontinued, I think? Or maybe not yet on the market? Found on scrapstampsew‘s Flickr stream.

Then there’s about a billion Japanese import mushroom fabrics, many of them kindly uploaded to the True Up Flickr pool by Lisa of This and That From Japan. Here are a couple of my favorites.

Hedgehogs and Mushrooms

Deer and Mushrooms

Snails, Mushroom and Clovers

And here are a couple more found at Miss Matatabi on Etsy.

Isn’t Decole the greatest?

And that’s just scratching the surface. What are some of your favorite contemporary mushroom prints?

    WOW, lots of MUSHROOMS, and it is all cool fabric. Thanks for going on “the hunt” for it. :)

  2. MichelleB says:

    The unidentified mushrooms are from JoAnns. I believe it is “their” fabric.

  3. Mary says:

    I love the Alexander Henry mushrooms from the Tillbrook collection, too!

  4. Darci says:

    “Unidentified mushrooms from Littleluvs on Flickr.” That fabric is called “tossed toadstools” made exclusively for JoAnn’s! I LOVE it and have tons.

  5. The Alexander Henry mushroom is an older fabric. I got a couple of yards of it a couple of years ago at but in blue and green. I think I saw some of it at Mendel’s on Haight last month though. Or maybe it was at Joann’s?
