Fabric Friday

Here's an unusual souvenir. This Disneyland "Fantasyland" fabric isn't dated but based on the Windmill attraction that was never built I'm guessing this is from 1955.











Yes you can see the vintage catalog I used to flatten the fabric on this scan, I'm too lazy to redo it...

What a great piece of Disney history. Lovely colours too. Great find.

Awesome collectible - and looks to be in fantastic shape, still. Love the graphics on there - especially Snow White in the original proposed attraction vehicle.

Wow, too, too cool!

Yes, Very Interesting. Def. pre-opening concepts, if not manufacture.

The first frame shows the original concept of Monstro as a flume ride. Obviously, that got changed. Today instead of puking you up, he swallows you whole.

I like this...I too have some 'vintage' Disney fabric...now if it came form an old shirt or something I don't know...We've used it for clothes for dolls. It has almost the same coloring. :) THANKS for sharing.

The expression on Snow White's face is... interesting. She is REALLY into Dopey.

Hi Major - I saw that too and leered at it a few moments myself. I doubt it's intentional. Everything else is so off-model I think its just an accident.
