Thrifty Craft – Vintage Sewing Patterns

I am always finding great vintage and previously owned craft supplies in addition to having leftover pieces myself. I have a special addiction to sewing patterns so I usually pick up a lot of them. Here is my latest addition to the Thrifty Craft store (Follow Thrifty Craft on Facebook and find a few treasures for yourself!)

Ideas for old Christmas Linens and Fabrics

If you are like me you have lots of old Christmas towels, table cloths, napkins and other cloth items that have nostalgic value but no longer go well with your current decor or are just worn or stained from years of loving use. Have you considered creating a memory quilt with those items? Most people think of memory quilts as made of old clothing from a loved one but there are many different kinds of memory quilts. Some ideas would be to make place mats, table runners, decorative wall tapestries, or cheery holiday throw to wrap up in on a chilly night. 

If you try this send me a pic! I love seeing others creative ideas. 

Not ready to tackle a memory quilt on your own but still want one? I make all kinds of memory quilts. Contact me directly here or visit my Etsy shop Daisy May Days.

Happy Holidays Everyone!

Make-Do Curtain – Bohemian Style!

I injured my arm. And then the blind on the window overlooking my main sewing machine decided to jump off the track if I didn’t use both hands. So now the evil blind is in the trash and I made this curtain from two discarded cotton scarves. What do you think? I kind of like it.
