So, I thought I would tell you about a new venture of mine. I have been filling my time with something different for me. I've been recycling fabrics! I go to the local thrift outlet or to an estate sale and look for fabrics and notions. I find that many elderly people leave behind vintage fabrics and projects in various states of completion. I have been able to find some AWESOME pieces of yardage! Here are a few, some already sold. I guess that there are other people out there that love vintage fabrics too!
Very popular, when I was growing up, for Sunday dresses!

This one was wonderfully patriotic with it's American Flag!
This one really got me to wondering if it had not, in fact, been some one's tablecloth back in the 40's!I usually have to wash the fabrics because they have a musty smell. Probably came from some one's attic or garage! But the work is well worth it to find hidden VINTAGE treasure! I have several others in my shop, if you are interested!
