I love vintage trims because they are so unique compared to most trims these days. I mean you can buy reproductions and such, but I love stumbling upon a gorgeous trim at a garage sale or thrift store. (a lot of these in the picture were gifted to me also...I guess my friends know what I like! lol)
You can also find them on Etsy for decent prices-though you may have to search through a lot of listings to find what you want.
make rings-so easy! I actually don't have a huge button collection (wish it was bigger) but every now and then I'll buy a big lot on Etsy and see what I get!
Patterns. Love me a good vintage pattern, I'll admit sometimes mainly for the gorgeous artwork on the front, am I right? When and why did they do away with that? I bought the one on the bottom left and top right specifically for framing the cover and hanging on the walls of my sewing room. Guess I should hop on that sometime. ;)
One thing: make sure if you really plan on using the pattern to sew with, that it includes all the pieces. Also in the vintage days (lol), the patterns only come in one size most of the time. So make sure it's the size you want. Unless you're planning on framing the art! I've also seen people wrap up handmade gifts with vintage patterns-so creative and cute!
Rachel did! Next time I come across a bunch of vintage spools, I'm doing this! I say next time like I ever have...lol.
Are you excited for our first guest post next Monday? I am! Come back tomorrow for a fabulous fabric giveaway! It's big, people!
