whether or not this is a William Morris fabric? I bought it as a bargain in a charity shop but the style is very similar and I absolutely love it. I'm using it to make curtains so obviously it doesn't really matter, but my daughter insists that it is, but I am unsure. It doesn't really matter but it would be nice to know.

It looks like it is to me.

Certainly of that style but not sure.

It looks like it to me too

It would usually say 'Morris & Co' along the selvedge if it is.

Definitely in the style of, though I can't say I've seen that design before. Have you tried doing a google reverse image search? You might find out for sure that way. & if it is & you have the shelve edge, as above it will tell you there with Morris & Co.

The large clumpy green leaves and peacock-tail shaped flowers seem out of character for a William Morris design. I could be wrong though!

Is it a roll of fabric? As other posters have said, see if there's a selvedge.

Thanks everyone.
Plump, I wondered that too.
Hippy, I shall have to wait until the said daughter arrives to try that!
I can't wait to get started though, I know it's slightly clumsily designed but I think it definitely borrows heavily from the style and for £10 it's an absolute bargain.
Thanks again everyone, I'll update when I know for sure.

Will check the edge in a few minutes.

PulyaSochsup Sun 17-Mar-19 13:20:07

Not on the sleeve, so I was right, as were all of you. I absolutely love it though and it will suit the rest of my house so I'm happy.
Thank you everyone 🙂.

A very good bargain!

PulyaSochsup Sun 17-Mar-19 13:35:44

Thanks Plump, I can't believe my luck. I will post again at some point when I have used it🙂.

RockinHippy Sun 17-Mar-19 13:41:29

Wow, that's a bargain whatever it is. Enjoy making it up 😊

Thanks Hippy, will do.
