Show me your pretty, old-fashioned printed covers, fitteds and AIOs

I'm looking for some old-fashioned or classic prints for covers, fitteds, and AIOs. I don't mind having a couple of modern prints, but it seems hard to find the ones that are more my style. Please tell me what the brand/WAHM is and where to find it.

What do you mean by old fashioned?

I saw some vintage-looking prints on brookiellen.com, not sure if that's what you're looking for.

Not just those, but even prints from the 30s, 40s, 50s, vintage asian-inspired prints, too. I just get tired of the ultra-modern prints on every brand.

I almost bought one at JoAnn today that had vintage Japanese Geisha paintings. I find more vintage prints in home decor, though; you might check that. Thrift stores are great for vintage fabrics.

I don't know where you can find diapers, but I just found this store on etsy and I the shirts! I can't wait to find out if my Sproutlet is a girl so I can buy some.

I think anyone with a bit of a quilting stash has some traditional calico prints, lots of florals & such. Asian prints are popular now too, like PP said.
It is super easy to find those in cotton woven, but not PUL. You might possibly find knits. Lots of WAHMs do SYOF customs or they probably have those calicos in their stash.

ok - of course I had to go window shopping for knits....
there are tons of vintage knit prints (for fitteds) at GIRL CHARLIE
http://www.girlcharlee.com/cotton-je...-c-90_103.html

Some are pretty lightweight, so just check the descriptions carefully. (I avoid super-light)
