These are the contents of several bags of goodies I received from my generous fabric fairy. There are rolls and rolls of satin ribbon, ric rac, yards of all kinds of accents to be sewn on purses, garments, blankets and quilts, and notions and embellishments of all sorts. I can't even think of the words to describe this treasure! My mind is whirling with the many different craft ideas that these things can be incorporated into!
Its like having my own craft section at Walmart! Some (most!) of these things are vintage/retro. I see store tags on some of these rolls that really date them. If you grew up in this part of the South, you will know that Belk Department Stores haven't sold fabric or notions in many, many years! In fact, I forgot that they ever did, but the memory of going there with my Mama is coming back to me. I can see the bolts of fabric standing up on tables in my mind's eye.
I can imagine all kinds of future Sew Crafty Friday ideas!
I bet you are thinking, "Where is she going to put all that junk?". So, I am already planning a future post on how I am going to organize my fabric stash, scrap fabric stash and my new "craft section"!!!! (once I figure out how I am going to organize it! :o) )
Earlier this week I have already posted pictures of my Sew Crafty Friday project, but here are some more! I couldn't wait until Friday!
