Sewing is my new passion. I love finding T-shirts from the Goodwill and Vintage fabric and making a modern dress for my three (almost four) year old granddaughter.
These are both from previously slightly used T-shirts and fabric I found vey inexpensively in an antique shop near Shelton, Washington. Tomorrow I may make matching hats.
Have you noticed I have an obsession with Airstreams. The dress on the right has a little Airstream appliquéd to the front. I was making Airstream potholders and thought this could easily be adapted to a dress front. And here it is.
I am not sure from where my obsession/fascination with Airstreams comes, but I love this American Icon and even though I don’t own one, the thought of it just makes me smile. Maybe that is what I need to do next in life.
They keep showing up in my Pinterest, and on my blog. These are three more Airstream Potholders made this afternoon. They just make me smile and lately I have needed a little help with that.
In one week, I lost a diamond out of my wedding band, lost my favorite initial necklace (made in England and $$$$), my iPod, my Fitbit and may favorite Purple Leather notebook. I don’t have dementia, but I certainly have trivial property loss. Just glad I don’t have “brain loss”. I have also learned by this point in my life they are just material things, and maybe some of them can be replaced. But DANG!!
