My favorite fabrics are 'Vintage'. Throughout my sewing life/career, vintage quilts, quilt tops and fabrics have made their way to my collections.
If they weren't originally vintage, then reproductions were at the top of my list to collect, stash and sew. Yesterday was a Vintage Scrap Ditty Bag Sew day.
It was also a re-organizing of what's left of my vintage reproduction fabrics.
Yardages were pressed, refolded and stacked. Scraps went to the vintage basket and bin.
This doesn't look like much, does it? I'm having a bit of a panic attack!
Oh, right, Sue, you have more at Sue's MadeWith Fabric&Fiber Studio! Whew!
Along with using vintage scraps for ditty bags, I made use of a few embroidery blocks that are almost vintage. That is they have been around long enough they qualify. This January embroidery block is a leftover from The Calendar Quilt, and the fabrics from the 'Not Vintage Scrap Basket'! Yes, I have several of those baskets...laundry baskets!!! I could sew a 'GaZillion' ditty bags from them and still have baskets and bags full.
Oh, BTW....bags of 'Not Vintage Scraps' are going to Studio #14.
Please come get a Bag or Two or Three...for FREE!
Sorry...No Vintage Scraps...I Still Sew Vintage!
