So.... the months have gone by and the sewing room has been unused. Flea markets and yard sales have been unpicked and Craigslist postings have come and gone - leaving great deals for other buyers, I imagine. Going back to school full time is *ahem* FULL TIME work! Then having a houseful of visitors all summer has kept me busy as well. With a quiet week until school starts back, I wanted a quick sewing fix.
In the past couple of years I have grabbed vintage fabrics wherever I could find them and somewhere I picked up this. I can't even figure out what the items were, but I believe they were cafe curtains (they have rod pockets.) This is quite a heavy fabric for curtains, though, so I'm not sure. Anyway, the print is VERY cool!
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this print!
Okay, I could do this all day long .... make useless little items out of salvaged fabrics and trims....play with my vintage sewing machines while listening to "Leave it to Beaver" in the background... poke around estate sales looking for old fabric. What fun!
But next week its back to the books... :)
