When I sew, I try very hard to use cottons, press studs and needles that are vintage. There are so many sewing items out there in the world that end up in antique and thrift stores.
Why bother buying brand new ones with expensive price tags when you can pick up the same items for a couple of dollars ? I believe in recycling as much as possible, that includes vintage and antique laces and ribbons. They are so much prettier and the quality stands alone. Buying this way gives an edge to designs as well because it is less likely that you will find anything the same. I love being unique !
Tomorrow on FRENCH BLUE AND PEACHY PINK I will share some other pretty treasures that I found over the weekend !
So I will see you all then !
