I bought these pillow cases for 50c each. I really want to use them as pillow cases, but I probably won’t. I’d like to sew an apron for Elora and a little skirt for Georgia (or myself). I’ve also thought of sewing strips together to make a pretty scarf, possibly backing it with some suiting wool from my coat that I’ve now had for over 10 years. Of course, they’d also make a nice bag. Too many choices!
I spotted the fabric as soon as I walked in the door of Vinnies. They are so bright and cheery. I love the floral design. I love them. Right now they are placed upon my dining table, spread out over my cutting mat, looking very bright indeed!
It’s a wonderful feeling, repurposing things. I often think of the ‘life’ that my newly acquired item might have had. Sometimes I can’t understand why people wanted to get rid of such lovely things.
Sewing with fabric that has already been worn in is really delightful. There are so many options to choose from and your end result is always something special.
