a bucket of cute.

If you know anything about me, you know that nothing gets me going like vintage fabric. I dream about vintage fabric, I collect it, I pet it, I stare at it, and I am finally getting around to using it! I have gotten over my fear of cutting into some of my most cherished prints and made a big ol' bucket of cute. In other words, I have made some zippered pouches for the shop!

This is just a sampling of some of the prints I've been working with...

oooohhhhh...

ahhhhh....

If you're in need of one of these, you know where to find them!
I have more that I'll be listing in the next few days.


{The pouches with the pleating were modified from the "Gathered Clutch" pattern by Anna Graham of Noodlehead. You can find that and other great patterns on her site. While you're there check out her new 241 tote pattern, it is super cute! I'll be making one for myself in the very near future!}

These are darling. I especially like the one on the bottom with the strip of linen. There's something about linen paired with vintage fabrics that just makes me happy. I bet these will be snapped up in a second.

Vintage fabric really makes my heart tick too! They are so precious and so soft and cuddly to work with. And the fact they have a (unknown) history and that it is all about recycling just adds the joy of dreaming of them, collecting them, looking at them, feeling them and finally finally cutting into them to make something adorable like you have. I like it!

Cute zipper bags! What fun additions to your shop. I wish I were better at finding vintage fabrics. Do you go to vintage stores or thrift stores or recycle things you have? Lovely selection!
