A lovely quiet day cutting out vintage fabric animals and shapes

little groups of animals & vintage fabric 001

It’s so therapeutic doing this and it’s a lovely way to use some of my fabric which isn’t suitable for other things.

vintage fabric shapes

I iron interfacing on the back so the shapes aren’t floppy ans are easy to hold. I’ve made little groups of different ones and put them on my Etsy Shop

Children love them as I saw from the fabric workshops I did a few weeks ago. They can be put on the wall,  glued into scrap books,  played with in make believe games……..

Make a picture to take home

they can be used for making cards or pictures with, you can decorate a mirror, a cupboard, the fridge, a window……..

Animal groups 005

the possibilities are endless and most of the fabrics are vintage so they are truly beautiful and original. A lovely little present for children to play with on these cold winter days.

What a lovely surprise to wake up to. My little vintage fabric pin cushion with pink bobbles is going to America. I wish I could take it there myself.

Huneysuckle

Honeysuckle

I’m missing my flowers in the garden as it gets colder so I thought I’d post a few on here. Just the orange ones as they’re my very fave.

mini bunting

three strands of mini vintage bunting

I’ve been making bunting for my Open House Sale in 10 days. I mainly make it in 2 meter strands which is £12.  Not bad eh.

Nasturtiums

Autumn mini bunting

The blue and white florals were made by hand in France in the thirties. The  pinky purple rose fabric was also made by hand in the thirties but in America. It’s all so precious.

The blue and white polka dot is from a damaged fifties dress.
