I've spent my morning going through a big bag of sewing supplies that I found at the last Estate sale that I went to. I love to find sewing stuff. Which is very ironic since I can't sew. Sewing envy perhaps? I think probably "sew" (sorry!). So, for a "needle pulling thread" experience, tag along, and I'll show you what I found.
Ribbons, lots of lovely ribbon. This is the expensive kind too, nice to find at such a good price. Last time I was a JoAnne's the really cost stuff was like 7.00 and 8.00 a yard. Ugh.
Love these little rose medallions. SOLD! Thank you!
This was my favorite. Loved the colors. Sold!
Pretty in pink. Sold
Fun needles (love the packaging, probably from the 50's at least), velvet ribbon and pink lace.
Who doesn't love Aunt Martha? Or her patterns. I just love Aunt Martha's patterns. So sweet and charming. I keep intending to take one and paint it in on a canvas, rather than sewing it. Since paint, I can do. But alas, that has not happened yet. And I've had that idea for three or four years now. Best laid plans and all that jazz. It probably has not happened cause I'm too busy going to Estate Sales. Sold
I loved this apron. Look at the sweet details of this two-sided pocket. Rick Rack is so stinkin adorable. And the vintage rose material is equally sweet. Unfortunately, it has not been finished out, the top is un hemmed and just a big hunk of material and it needs strings. I had originally bought it to cut it up, but I just did'nt have the heart to do that. Sold
This wee box of mending thread. The back of it has instructions for darning a hole. Does anyone ever do that anymore? Certainly not me. Since I can't sew and all. That is what I tell Sweet Hub anyway. Who can't understand why no one darns socks anymore.
And last but not least, this was a fun find. Nothing to do with sewing. LOVED the packaging.
Yeah, cause at my age, my Pantys certainly need new life. LOL. So do my Bra's. They definitely could use a "hitch up". Ah, gravity, gotta love it. What the old joke, gravity makes 36 C, a 36 Long. Har. Sad, but true.
Well, thanks for tripping through my goods with me and probably learning more than you wanted to know about by bra situation. I've posted all of this fun stuff onto my Etsy.
And I did not have the heart to show you the wonderful paper-stitched tape measure. I'm a meanie I konw. But you can take heart in knowing that I have saggy boobs. :D Paybacks are tough eh?
Happy Sat. **Thanks y'all for buying my junk! :D
