Some treasures passed down with much appreciation.......

A pretty tin which holds some curiosities.

Still curious that Noodles.

Vintage buttons, thimbles, cloth tapes.

Some old spools of thread. I'll never use any of this as I find it too sentimental.

Old flour/seed sacks.

My goal is to make some aprons out of this material. It's original use was a duvet cover that our Great Grandmother had made. It's now thin in some spots, but overall the material is still very useable.

I have always been on the lookout for retro fabric, and this fits the bill very well. I recently found a contest at Tie One On. I don't know if I'll have time to enter, but it's such a cool idea for anyone interested in entering an apron sewing contest.
