Back to the postcards

February 13, 2011

Where has the time gone? I have 21 postcards to get in the mail by the end of the month and I just started them. I have 8 done so far. I played with some of the techniques I learned this past summer (the koi) but they take way too long. I ended up going back to what I love – geometric shapes and vintage pics. It looks simple but little things like stitch choice and thread color make a big difference in the finished piece. So for now everything goes on hold until these are done!

Vintage sewing pattern

February 1, 2011

I went thrifting yesterday and found this great little pattern from the 1960s. It is not my size and I don’t think it would adjust easily as it’s only a one size pattern so I put it up at my Etsy shop for someone else. If you like sewing vintage dresses and can wear vintage size 18 (sewing size, not vanity [i.e. department store] size) .. then you might like this!
