My new vintage sheet quilt

I've been working on my king size quilt all week.  Now I'm ready to start quilting.  I made it from 12" squares.  The backing is 4 sheets cut to fit.  I wanted them really big so it wouldn't take as long to finish.  These are my very favorite sheets. I love them all. A few of the squares I swapped with Lani at Create. Can't wait to finish.

Sew Mama Sew Giveaway

It's Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day.  I am participating once again.  I do ask that you become a follower for an extra entry. Thanks so much.

I'm giving away a diaper, beach, run around town bag.   Fabric is Legacy Studio Fresh Fusion. Lining is peach color vintage sheet and is interfaced to make it sturdy.  Plenty of pockets on the inside.  The handles are nylon webbing and closure is grosgrain ribbon.  I did make it to sell on Etsy and once again it didn't sell. Now I can give it away. It's a big bag, 18" across and 10" high.

Good luck.  I will ship internationally.  The giveaway is open until May 25th at 5 PM PST.

Polka-Dot dress for a chair

Finally finished this polka dot dress for a chair I painted white.  This is for Layla and Ruby's desk in their room.  I had seen one in an antique store back in October and really wanted to try it myself.  It's made from a thrifted sheet and scrap fabrics. There was a lot of trial and error involved.  But in the end it turned out just the way I wanted.

Embroidered Pillows in my Shop

I've been working on these pillows for a while and now it's time to start selling them.  You can see them in more detail in my shop. I'm selling them for $18 each. All are made from vintage hankerchiefs, doilies, pillowcases and dresser scarves. The backs are all from vintage sheets.  I really enjoy making them and hate to part with them, but you can have too many. If anyone wants a special pillow made from items you have just contact me.
