vintage sheets make lovely things
now i thrift. i mean... i thrift more. I have always op shopped... it started in high school and is something that my husband has slowly had to get used to. and i figure... since i am already there looking for clothes, furniture and homewares i might as well look for items to stock my craft room! and so my love of vintage sheets was born. now when i op shop i head straight to the bedding section and usually the craft section is close by. it is getting harder and harder to find vintage sheets as i know i am not alone in my love... hence the vintage sheet FQ swap - where vintage sheet lovers and crafters can pool their resources and expand their collections!
some crafty inspiration for your friday morning
1. baby bibs (inspired by this)
2. a still unbound quilt
3. owl softie
4. a different section of quilt (my guest bedroom is looking forward to its makeover)
5. more softie making
