Little pieces of 50s barkcloth have lovely designs on them and I just happened to find these recently.
And so...(or should that be sew)...
I thought I'd team them up with some dotty fabric from an older Amy Butler range and make some small items for the V&H fair.
I'm intrigued by some of these designs.
There really are some gorgeous fabrics around ..it just takes time to search!
There really are some very kind people around too...
Take, for instance, my writer pal Margaret (met through blogging), who kept me provided with her lovely collages when I was too ill to do much on my blog, last year.
She sent me this collage on my b/day
My photographing skills are a bit naff just lately and so no way can I do this justice but
what a cheery card to receive.
And then...another very sweet blogger whom I have never met...
...posted this to me.
She had found a vintage hanky and it reminded her of me, she said... packed into a pretty, little box, along with some soaps and other little goodies..
The motto on the heart says:
''Where there's a woman , there's a way '
I shall treasure that heart!
I shall treasure this as well...
It's 1930s feedsack fabric and I found it on Etsy.
