vintage sewing



Not only do I love vintage fabric, but I love vintage sewing materials too, like thread, scissors and this English cotton tape. All found at the beloved flea market last weekend.

I've been sewing with this good old thread and I've used the cotton tape as hanging loops on my latest batch of lavender pillows, which I hope to put in my shop early next week.

I'm wishing all the mothers out there a Happy Mother's Day on Sunday!

Hi Jill! Happy Mothers Day to you sweets. I love vintage sewing notions too. Your lavender pillows are gorgoeus. Curious: will you be adding any banners to your etsy shop?

I've been thinking a lot about cute cloth veggie bags to take to the market. Are your fabrics appropriate for holding green goodies? They sure would be pretty.

I love the vintage notions too. The labels are always so nicely done. Your fabric scrap banner is great!

hi rebekah and maria! you are both so encouraging :) yes, i will put these in my shop, maybe by monday or tuesday, i hope.

thank you angela! hope your mother's day is sweet and that you have some time to enjoy the day, i know your weekend is very busy :)

orange sugar home, my bags are all hand washable, so i think you could take them to the market. i do all the time! i will be making some more lightweight totes soon too, which are great to stow in your purse for when you need an extra shopping bag.

thank you, amy! i love the way vintage things are labelled too, i think it's what attracts me to them initially.

thanks, jane :) hope your weekend will be sweet as well!
