Handmade-64Every old is new again!

I love it that old things are no longer seen as “old and daggy”…..they are on-trend, upcyclable, fashionable and in demand.

I bought this suitcase at a garage sale last week-end for the princely sum of $5.00! (This equals very happy Julie!) It is the perfect dimensions for storing a swag of my sewing patterns in the studio. I have been buying patterns for a LONG time and have a lovely collection. Some of them I bought as a teenager when I started making all my own clothes.

I have yet to sort them into categories in the suitcase but will do so with lots of space allocated to my new passion – dresses, or as I like to call them…FROCKS! Stay tuned for details of a vintage inspired frock workshop coming soon.
