- I am a Homemaker and Freight Broker (with my husband) who has a love of needle crafts, sewing, crochet, cross-stitch. I learned to sew in 2007, really love using vintage patterns (1940's, 50's, 60's) & and seeing how I can modernize them with fabric choices and trims). I need 25 hours in a day to get to everything I want to do!

Free Friday Patterns
Tomorrow being Friday, more free vintage patterns:
Simplicity 5502, yr 1973, size 18, B40, W32, H42 - dress/jumper with lined and shaped yoke, back zipper, high round neckline.
Simplicity 8541, yr 1969, size 18, B40, W31, H42 - button trimmed dress with back zipper, shaped bias roll collar and a pleat simulating an opening, short sleeves or sleeveless.
Post a comment and I will draw this weekend. And to last weeks', now I have your info & they will go out tomorrow.
At this rate, I may thin my stash quicker than I thought. Once my kids go back to school, I may go through the fabric stash and make little scrap bags for quilting scraps for giveaways.
On the home sewing front, I was able to get one top put together for daughter and the second is also sewn together. Both need bias tape finishing (handwork) which can be done in the evening in front of the TV. Maybe tomorrow I will get the remaining pants cut out, bringing her total to a possible 5 pairs of capri/shorts for school and possible 3 tops if everything gets finished off.
