Lovely spools of thread which were used in my new line of embroidered footwear art.

The family’s collective garage sale finds— We were thoroughly joyful and yet disgusted with ourselves for the excess of “junk” that we drug home. 😉
My packages (I had some more in other parts of the room— my family kept finding them while they went through their stuff)
My perfect size 11 Oxfords, brand new =$3 (I have been craving a good pair of oxfords)
Darling retro clock = $1.50
Wonderful, whimsical pincushion = $.45
A huge tub of vintage clothing patterns. They are all a size too small, but I figure it’s easily remedied by using a smaller seam allowance or adding a bit onto the pieces. This woman had great taste……..almost every pattern was adorable! I just hope they aren’t missing pieces……….
You know me and owls………… 🙂
She has some great photos, too……….
This diary cover reminds me of a circus……a theme that I’m really fascinated with right now.
This reminds me of my sister, Amanda. Hahaha! I love it.
I added some vintage buttons (I recently purchased them at an antique store in Walnut) to the front for interest, and because I plan to add suspenders eventually. When I do, two more buttons will be added to the back to hold them in place. But for now, I thought adding buttons to the back might look funny. 😉
As you can see, there were still a few strings that needed to be clipped, and markings that needed to be washed out. Other than that, it was completely finished. 🙂
I hate that the horizontal topstitching doesn’t match up once the zipper is closed. They did before. 😕 Other than that, I’m quite pleased with it. I’ve made three skirts with zippers so far, each with a different method. It’s a learning experienc for sure!
And some inside views; because I have a fascination with the insides of garments.
I love patterned facings or linings. 🙂
The same thing with stuff matching up on the inside. It must have something to do with how the zipper zips and exactly where the teeth intersect.
