project planning: holiday crafting preview (part I).

holiday crafting: preview.


I just checked the mail, and our box was FULL of fabric! I'm the most excited! I can finally start making Christmas gifts (and a few Thanksgiving projects)!

The two prints on the rights are both Project Runway winner (Season 1) Jay McCarroll prints that I found on eBay, which will be turned into a top secret project from Pip Lincolne's "Sew La Tea Do" book.

The fabric on the right is a Cut & Sew turkey from the 1970's! (also sourced on eBay). I can't wait to get started on him.

I've been collecting holiday decor and gifts ideas on my Pinterest boards, and I just can't wait to get started.

Are you making any special holiday gifts?



Coming Up...

-A Finished Pair of Socks!
-Vintage Thanksgiving Inspiration.
-Retro Readers Review: James and the Giant Peach.
-Work in Progress: Rewrites Bulletin Board.
-maybe a Friday Vocab Lesson?

...and so much more!!!

Those fabrics look amazing, especially that zig-zag print. Can't wait to see what you turn them into. ^_^
