Aren't these old rick rack packages so cool? I have been hitting eBay and buying up vintage trims, patterns and fabric. Some of the fabrics are from the 60's and 70's, some are not. I have been trying to stock up my sewing stash. It has been really fun! I thought these old packages were so neat-I don't think I will throw out the wrappers they are just too fun!
Look at the prices marked on them-10cents, 19 cents-oh my gosh!
And look at the top there the wool for mending-that is for things like socks-which we don't darn socks anymore-well most of us don't! Well I do but not with wool-lol! Could be used to mend a sweater as well. But I thought the packaging was so cool!
These are just a few of the trims that I bought. I was so lucky to be able to buy over 100 yards of trim for a little over ten dollars-how cool is that? When I got the box in the mail it was like Christmas for me to open it up and go through all my trims!
I also bought some darling vintage patterns to make some little girl dresses and coats~perfect for Easter or even through summer! I have some cut out getting ready to sew them up-they are going to be sooo darling wait until you see them! Can you tell I am excited-I am! I truly enjoy creating!
And take a look at this trim package-it is my favorite one of the whole bunch.
Isn't Prudence absolutely adorable!
I am not ever going to use her trim! I think somehow I need to incorporate Prudence in my blog or logo or something. The perfect use for her will come to me in a moment of creativity.
But I fell in love with her the moment I saw her!
Take a look for yourself...
And then look what I did on the inside~something special for my girl~a tag with her name on it!
I bet you are wondering about this next photo huh? LoL! Well it is my sneak peak of my latest little projects. Guess what I am going to do with these items? Go ahead...come on now I want to hear ideas! I will give you a hint..."Easter" I love to use, re-use or recycle things whenever I can. I hate to be wasteful so I try to come up with ideas once in a while. I look at things and how they are currently being used and dream up new ways to re-use them. This was a fun one. These items no longer look like they do in this photo. And they sure came out cute! I am almost completely done with them, just a few more details. Then I will share them with you. So keep your eyes open for them!
Hope you all enjoyed my post today~I certainly had a blast with my lil projects!
