My Creative Space...

Yesterday me and my sister went to four op shops and I came out with some nice floral sheets to use for some skirts and dresses for Ella. Might get started on one today.


Check out some more creativeness at Kootoyoo. Thanks Kirsty!

Those soft florals look gorgeous and I hope you have fun transforming them into some dresses/skirts. I love how soft against the skin old cotton sheeting is so I am sure your girl will love wearing them.

So jealous! What great finds! I need to head out and see what I can find for myself as well. There's more sewing needing to be done at my place and sheets like those would be perfection!

Hi Hannah
Came across your blog via Kootooyoo. I love the stuff you make. Good luck with the online business.

Pam said...

Looks like some great colours in there Hannah. I'm reading so much about vintage sheets from the op shops lately. It just hadn't clicked how handy they can be! I mean I use vintage chenille bedspreads for all manner of things, so don't know why it wasn't a natural progression of thought to use the sheets! lol.
Have fun making your skirts. :)

Some lovely fabrics there. I'd be interested to hear how they go crease wise. I made a couple of pillow case dresses a year back (http://sosewpoppy.blogspot.com/2009/02/dress-in-action.html)and that was my only complaint - creased to high heavens they did!
