Fabric screensavers

I have some pieces of vintage barkcloth that are too lovely to be hidden away in my stash where I hardly ever see them. So I photographed them to use as screensavers on my computer.

I noticed an option on Google's home page that lets you select one of your own photos as a background, which sparked the idea of using fabrics. This probably isn't even a new option as I'm not what you'd call an early adopter in the technology stakes.

Finally I've found a way to use these pieces without having a project in mind and scissors in hand.

And if I do cut them up I'll still have them whole.


  1. What a pretty collection of florals you have. I hadn't thought to do that, but it is a rather clever idea. It is a shame to have such pretty prints stored away, so this is a great way to enjoy them without committing to a project.

  2. Barkcloth could almost be one of my favourite fabrics because of its texture!
    The second fabric is beautiful. And i think I may have some exactly the same (or only similar) as the last one! I am still waiting on turning it into something.
