I started collecting vintage pillowcases and sheets at the beginning of the summer. Now I have a inexpensive compulsion. I have found all of mine at various thrift stores. I have yet to pay over 99 cents for a pillowcase and 1.99 for a sheet.
I've been wanting to make some new items for my etsy shop, and I started with this one. After I made it though, I decided I wanted one too. So I made two. :) It's quilted with a little hand embroidery and a hand-sewn binding.
I made the table runner for my etsy shop too, and I of course wanted one! I actually made three of these because they were so fun and easy to make. I machine bound these.
Aren't the fabrics delicious? Vintage bedding is so soft.
Reasons why I love vintage fabric:
1. It reminds me of napping at my grandparents house.
2. The colors are so lovely.
3. It's so fun to find new ones!
4. They are inexpensive.
5. It's green...recycling fabric is awesome!
What about you? Do you love the vintage stuff, or is it too "old-lady" for you? ;)
