These designs are from a very old book that belonged to my grandmother. She purchased it in Mexico many years ago, and gave it to me when I was a teenager.
I like the brightness of the colors and the originality of the designs. Look at those peacocks in the border design below:
My daughter recently returned from a small vacation to LA, and she says she bought some Amy Butler fabric that she wants me to make into tote bags or handbags, so that will be one of my next projects. Right now I have a bag cut out of Chinese brocade, so that is next in line for the sewing machine. Of course, I may get distracted and make an apron or two.
