Really, the fabrics are bits and pieces I had been saving - leftovers, thrifted, ebay, whatever... I just hoarded a bunch of velvets and brocades for years. The velvet snakeskinny print fabric was brown and cream that I dyed purple. That was ebay. The velvet zebra was from a decorator fabric store clearance bin 12 years ago! It moved to 3 different states before I used it all! The blue bird fabric is from Olde Time Pottery a couple years ago. It was $4 a yard. I saw it at Joann for $25 or so a few weeks ago. The olive green is thrifted vintage. It was curtains I think. I actually probably do remember the story for every single piece. That's really good or really sad!
