vintage goodies

I have recently come into a bunch of vintage goodies! My tutu (great grandma) used to be a seamstress, so my grandma gave me a lot of her old sewing supplies... including some really groovy Hawaiian print fabrics from the 50s, 60s and 70s!!! These fabrics are of a much better quality than you can get today; really thick and well made. Plus, the prints and color combinations are AWESOME! On top of that, my grandma gave me hundreds of my tutu's vintage patterns from the 60s and 70s (many specifically from Hawai`i) *gasp!*. These are priceless! The only thing is, I must learn how to properly sew clothes so I can make use of these treasures.


Yep, this is a bright blue and orange paisely Hawaiian print fabric... yay 60s!!!

I got even more great vintage things around the same time; my friend was moving to Germany and she gave me a bunch of her crafty supplies, including embroidery thread (always good when you make amigurumi) scrapbooking supplies and..... A SERGER!!! I haven't gotten the chance to use it yet, but I'm SO excited... it will definitely help when I attempt to make stuff out of my tutu's patterns!
