Atomic Pillowz

I was sorting through some fabric today and came across this faux bark cloth "atomic" print. (Faux because barkcloth is definitely not cotton nor is it polyester or silk or whatever the heck this is made out of!)Anyways, it was just the right size for recovering an old throw pillow that has been hanging around bugging me on the studio couch. Here it is cozying up with the other two pillows that I've whipped up in various shades of alarming orange. I always liked that kind of print design, felt like I'd missed out on the atomic 50's being a 60's baby and all. So it is fun that it comes back around once again. Plus the texture of bark cloth is always fun, I like seeing it next to the more prosaic cottons and cotton/poly twill here. I was just googling to see if I could come up with a fun atomic retro barkcloth resource, and here is Retro Fabrics by Melinamade, cool!
