Bhu: Mai mom has been sewing since she was . . . well, let's just say a LONG TIME . . . and she has collected a lot of wonderful sewing-related things over the years and all of them are, at this point, "Vintage." So she decided to open a shop on etsy.com (http://www.etsy.com/shop/pattyskypants). This was precipitated by finding three boxes of vintage patterns, some of which you can see in the photo collage above. She also has probably a TON of vintage fabrics, notions and books, so it's all goin' into the store.
Patty: This is a slow process, as you can imagine, but I also want to start listing dolls, doll quilts, and other quilts in the coming months. I have already sold some items and now that everybody is in a post-kissmess consumer daze, it's slowing down a bit so I can get more things photographed and listed.
I know that some of Bhu's furrends moms are quilters and sewists. I do have a large collection of vintage and modern prints, so if you are looking for something specific for finishing or repairing a project, let me know. Send me a photo of the fabric needed and I'll browse through my collection, which is primarily filed by color.
The shop is called Pattyskypants Sew Thrifty with a beautiful masthead created by Ann of Zoolatry. I'll be listing vintage clothing, books, magazines, and other odds-n-ends as well as many one-of-a-kind handmade items. I hope you'll stop by! xxoo
Bhu: Hey, mom, can I be Vice Purresident for Opurrations?
