Finally, a new item in my shop. A Handmade New Item! Hasn’t been one of those for ages. Between wedding, prom & graduation season, my local shop has been (and still is) FULL. I’ve hemmed & altered dozens of items each week. Took a break and finished off this scarf and managed to get it listed today!
Soft, drapes well, cotton. Long enough to wrap around a couple times……….narrow enough to use as a tie belt, or hat band on a big sun hat at the beach. Goes with anything.
Some new finds for the supply section of my shop! Just love a new stack of fabric!!!
A whole cone of vintage mohair yarn! Fiber heaven! Royal & Navy together, with a strand of black nylon throughout. Very sharp looking.
I’ve been searching for holiday fabrics to add to the shop in July. These are ‘finds’ from the last sale I attended.
Add these supplies to the huge box of un cut vintage patterns I just brought home, and the shop is going to be stuffed full by July! Rescuing sewing & knitting supplies is almost as fun as sewing & knitting!
I’m having so much fun searching for vintage fabric to stock my little corner of Etsy. Here’s some of this weeks finds, a couple which have made it into the shop already!
Here’s 4 cotton prints…..all with a fruit theme. What are the odds I discover 4 fruity fabrics the same week?
And, then there is this…. I do have a great bit of info from the selvedge: A Signature Fabric, “Jumbo Junket” Created by Hans Moller of Associated American Artists 1954
I’ve been reading all I can find on the Assoc. American Artists. What an interesting time in the US, and what a collection of artists!
This print is along one border of this black fabric. I have 3 yards of this 35″ wide fabric. Would welcome additional info about this print, or any other works by the same artist……or the association of artists as a whole.
8th Grade Graduation Gift….using school uniforms from Kindergarten through 8th grade!
Fun to put together, although the math at the beginning almost did me in! (numbers aren’t my best skill) Faced each of the squares, as there were 4 different types of material in the mix. The squares from the nylon gym shorts were the most cranky-making! Slippery little bits they were!
