If you have ever even accidentally ended up at Flamingo Toes there is a good chance that you’ve come across a vintage fabric project. Or a project that I wished I used vintage fabric on but restrained myself. One of those two things.
Because seriously, it is just too yummy. All those gorgeous colors, pretty details and sweet embroidery. I mean how can you resist it? I obviously can’t. It just makes my heart go pitter patter.
Well in the spirit of all things Vintage I’ve rounded up 30 Fabulous Vintage Linen Projects!
These are a fun mix of vintage fabrics, handkerchiefs, tablecloths – anything made from yummy vintage fabric! Have a blast looking through them all!

Aren’t they all so great? What are you going to try first?
Bev, all of these projects are so nifty! I had seen some of them before, but not all by any means. I pinned a bunch of them and will definitely be making some of these projects. I think I’ll start with that super easy tissue holder. Thanks for sharing!!
What a fantastic list. Since I just found you at the end of last year I did not have some of your tutorials shown here. The other ones from other sites were just a bonus. Reading your blog is one of the highlights of my day. Your style is so similar to mine.
Oh my, you have found such a lot of lovely projects. I am trying hard to pick a favourite but I just can’t!
The spring vintage table linen runner is beautiful. My best friend found some of her mothers linens after the mothers passing. I wanted to find a way to use them so my friend could enjoy them. That runner is perfect and I can even use the lace. Thank you for the idea.

Hi Bev. I love this round up. So many amazing and beautiful projects. Thank you for including our 10 minute pillowcase apron tutorial. Warning: they are addicting!
This could not be MORE timely!! LOVE this post! I just got a ton of vintage linens from my great grandma (you can see them on my instagram!) and I’m itching for creative projects to use them. Pinning!! Thanks!

What a beautiful collection of projects, Bev! How much more pleasurable it is to enjoy vintage fabrics in one’s everyday life than to keep them hidden away in a trunk or closet! Thank you for sharing these lovely ideas. xoxo
What great ways to repurpose vintage fabric! Thanks for sharing for the Home Matters party.
Hurray! I loooovve vintage linens and have to restrain myself from buying up pretties when I find them. Lots of reasons here to snag them when I find them. Think I’ll have to try the coasters first then the no sew hanky valance. Thanks for some great ideas!
