Fish and fabric

April 3, 2012 § 1 Comment

Vintage flowered fabric in the most curious of textures, it is slippery and stretchy, like gym shorts. More than 2 yards for $2, bordered and straight into the dress-up box.

And this lovely gem, a completely hand-stitched potholder, beautiful and intricate with all it’s little individual scales. Old but never used. $2. Take that, Anthropologie.

It is fun to watch what people like and what people buy. So the whale is the new owl in kids decor. You should buy a stump to use as a chair or side table. And succulents and cacti are filling favorite retail establishments. I see new things to sew! Take a look at these fabric potted cacti. From Anthropologie.

I am going to plant some. There are miles of plant pots at the thrift store.

Hanging vines

Have you seen the Pottery Barn kids store this month? Lots of brown twisted paper trees and hanging twine vines.  This is a store display re-create. It would be way more effective with many more, but the kids were pleased. And they get another lesson that you don’t have to buy most things, you can make them!
