Vintage Finds

Lately I have had a bit of a thing for vintage, so on Saturday morning bundled up the kids and went off in search of garage sale bargains.  Of course there were none to be found, so instead I hit the Op shops, where I came across some great old patterns and a folder full of knitting patterns (I can’t knit, but hey you can’t leave them there, they were so cheap).

Mum also came over that afternoon armed with some of her old doll’s patterns and some pattern books from 1977!  It was great looking at them and seeing all the things I can remember her making for my cabbage patch kids.  So I have cut out a doll’s dress to have a try.  Now me not being the sewer in the family, this could be interesting, plus I have boy’s and have no real need for a doll’s dress, but I can’t resist giving it a go.

I also have grand plans to teach myself to crochet. So far all I have achieved is taking an hour to manage a slip knot, somehow I think my crochet and sewing days might be limited to just dreaming!
