Fabric

I don’t know what your favourite fabric design is but mine is paisley. I just love the patterns with the colours, and shapes. I found this site Victoriana.com – The Victorian Era Online:

It discusses the fascinating history of paisley shawls, their origins in Kashmir, the interest which developed in European countries, and their links with the city of Paisley, Scotland.

I have a couple of fabrics that have a paisley pattern. I really like the warm tones in the last picture. The second fabric is really bold. They are all so different to one another!
