So to distract myself, I've been sewing. You can see the beginning stages of a couple of projects in the above picture. The main focus is an adorable children's print fabric from the 1940's. The selvage says, "Guaranteed to Be A Puritan Print" "Mail Time". It shows scenes of bunnies, bluebirds, pigs, and dogs delivering the mail...so cute! I have only small pieces, but they're just the right size for zippered pouches. Here's a few of the finished ones on Etsy...
I've also been working on some applique projects. I'm not sure if I've thanked Katherine lately for her tutorial. Thank You, Katherine!!!
This first one is made with a vintage Indian Head cotton fabric of tossed strawberries. I've appliqued a natural linen blossom on the front.
And this one allowed me to use those small scraps of 1930's fabrics I've been drooling over for the past year. I call it "Spring Showers and Flowers". :)I hope to get my flowers in this week and then I can take some pictures of the patio and yard. Have a great week, everyone!
