Sis Lori here: I learned to sew in 4-H years ago and sewed a lot when a teenager and when my daughter was young. I have an older Elna sewing machine in a cabinet that belonged to our Grandma Nettie. I recently bought another inexpensive portable machine. I would like to sew some crafts and will probably sew for my grandaughter Addison.
Lately I have collected a lot of buttons: Here are some of the prettier ones in assorted blues:
And lovely reds:
I keep them in these jars on a shelf:
I have also collected holders for threads:
And bobbin holders:
This Singer sign with a vintage look hangs near my sewing corner:
I found these 2 patterns and buttons to cover while thrifting recently:
I think the graphics of the babies on these snap cards are great!
I won an auction on eBay recently with quite a few of these cards of buckles and buttons. The seller said they were found behind a wall of an old house they bought and were very dirty when I received them:
And last but not least, here are a few more vintage buttons on cards. I LOVE the graphics on these:
That's it!! Happy sewing!!!
