Some pretty laces which will soon be making their way into some sweet packs for Little Bits of Pretty.
And a little show and tell of some recent sewing from some previous thrifted treasures. I made this skirt for the littlest love. With the cooler weather here now, she needed something a bit snugglier. The fabric was thrifted last year sometime, for a dollar or two. I made some binding for the hem from a pretty vintage floral sheet. Lulu wasn't too keen telling me 'I donnnnnn't like it'. The addition of a little doily pocket soon won her over. Phew.
I think it will be very cute with some tights and boots and a little knit on top. I am so happy to have made something from my huge stash of thrifted fabrics.
Another thrifty revamp was this op shopped frame. The print was waterstained and so after removing it, I gave it a pretty coat of teal paint and popped in a favourite teatowel. The teatowel was a freebie from here. Unfortunately I had to snip some off the top and bottom to fit the frame. The frame was $3.00, I had a piece of glass cut which cost $13.00 but still a good price for such a large frame, I think.Now to hang it!
I hope you've had some success at the oppies lately too.
