A Pillowcase Full Of…

February 5, 2014

I popped to Wimbledon Car Boot Sale earlier and found some great vintage clothes, which I’ll save for another post. On my way out I spotted a pillowcase which matches the ones I currently have on my bed. I just had to pick it up, however on closer inspection I realised it was full of sewing stuff. The seller told me that to get the pillowcase I had to get the contents as well. But for £2 I was happy to take the lot.

I thought I’d do a quick post to show you some of the things that were inside…

I recently sold most of my vintage buttons, so its nice to get a few new ones to play with, and I love that lot’s of them are on their original cards. I’ll probably put some of it on eBay and the pillowcase will join the other ones on my bed.

      I think it must be a pretty common design as I’ve now managed to get my hands on three. It’s such a pretty print isn’t it!

      I know! I’m so glad I spotted it, as I was on my way out. There was so much good stuff in there.

    I have curtains in that print. They have become skirts dress etc. I love sorting my way through discarded sewing boxes and bags. What stories they could tell……

      I love finding collections of things. There were also little instructions written down on scraps of paper. I’d love to find curtains in this print, I’d definitely turn them into a dress. xxx
