This week I finally made it back into the sewing room and finished another tote using repurposed vintage materials. I also started a new little project - pins from vintage embroideries! I took pieces of embroidery that were stained or had holes and cut out the charming, useable bits and turned them into pins. Not sure if I am going to sell these on Etsy or hold off and sell them at some sales I am hoping to take part in this summer. I plan on making a bunch more as they were lots of fun! And I used all materials that I had around the house that were left over from previous projects. I may even do a tutorial - we'll see.
|The finished pin next to the piece of embroidery it was cut from. You can even see one of the stains that made it unusable for it's original purpose. I love giving old items new life!|

(I got a bag of 50 pin backs at a thrift store for 50 cents awhile back
just knowing I would find a use for them :)!)
The Little was inspired this week as well...
