I had no idea that mum had these stashed away! Aren't they amazing? I have already made a special trip to Spotlight to grab some vintage-themed fabric. Can you guess which dresses these are going to end up as?
Mum also gave me this cool thread holder - my Pop, who was crafty in his own way, actually made this for my Nan. Mum doesn't use it so she said I could have it. Now I just have to find a spot for it to live on my craft desk.
I also scored these vintage buttons. My sister had been given these by our grandmother when she cleared our her sewing room when they downsized and moved into a little unit a few years back. Although my sister doesn't sew (yet - I'm sure it's only a matter of time!), she is also a creative type and was intending to use them in craft projects, but because she is so wonderful she has shared them with me.
You can see some of my favourites here.
I also scored some assorted fabric scraps. Because you can never have too many scraps! Haha. Well, I can't.
I'm so happy with my vintage treasures!
