Holey Sheet

Late last night, long past when I should have been asleep in preparation for today’s yard-sale-ing,* it seemed like a great time to start a little no-sew vintage sheet project I’d been thinking about. Impulse control? Never heard of it. I’ll be a vintage vendor at two outdoor events later this summer and I wanted to make something colorful to flutter gently in the mild summer breezes that will be blowing softly through my vintage-packed canopy tent. (This post is actually a subliminal…

Things have been very quiet around here, sewing wise. Not life wise though, I've had quite a few minor calamities these past two weeks. I'm now 36 weeks pregnant, so I'm having the normal aches and pains and complaints that you would expect when this far gone.

How lucky I was to chance upon a massive pile of retro terry towelling fabric last week. I bought it online and hey presto, here it is a week later sitting in a basket at the end of my bed. I am planning to use it for a plethora of spring inspired projects - bucket hats, shorty shorts, sunsuits for the little person, fuzzy cushions, actual towels! the list is endless and I am so keen to get stuck into it.
