It sounds like the title of a movie! Doesn't it?
This week I went to the Vintage Fashion and Textile Show. If you are ever in the area the three times a year that they have this show, you should treat yourself. I bought some vintage fabric, kitchen towels, buttons and lace. All the linens were in wonderful shape and the vendors had them all cleaned beautifully. There were even gorgeous French fabrics from the 1800's, and lots of vintage clothing. Need I say anymore? It was fantastic.
I made a couple of quick projects using some of my finds. First up a t-shirt that I added some crochet flowers to. Total cost $1.00.
Next, a t-shirt that I cut a 1 inch strip off the bottom and used the strip to make spider web roses. I zig-zag hemmed the bottom of the shirt for that ruffle effect. I used one of those Hot Pattern videos as a guide. Total cost zero dollars.
Last, an apron made with a vintage kitchen towel and some left over pieces of fabric and lace from other projects. I love how it came together. Total cost $3.00
Here I am playing house in my new outfit!
Have a great weekend!
