1970’s anyone?

After my post the other day about the second hand and vintage fabrics I decided to set myself a small challenge and actually cut into these new fabrics, along with some of the others I have sitting on my shelf waiting for a ‘special day’. I made up my mind to do a few things for my shop that would be made entirely out of vintage and second hand sourced materials. So, apart from two zips and the cotton, these two wallets, two pencilcases, and the bag are all made entirely from pre-loved fabrics. It would seem that I am having a small love affair with the 1970’s though.

    Wow, they turned out great! I love the idea of using second hand and thrifted materials to make something new.

  2. They look fantastic Jo! Love your choice of fabrics. I’m sure they will go very quickly.

    They look fab! I love the second photo. I’m trying to do the same thing with the clothes I am making at the moment and it is so much more rewarding than going to the shops and buying new everything.

      I agree! I am now a little in awe that I was silly enough to spend what I have in the past on bought items when they are so easy to make yourself! Plus the stories (and imagined stories) are such a bonus.
