Sewing From The Past

Two finds from my out and about thifting !!! Found an old box full of vintage wooden spools of thread ! And two vintage zippers !!! Looking at the thread makes me wonder about all of the different projects that they were a part of !!!! The zippers , tooo cool !! With a price of .29 and .35 , the pale pink and yellow is super wonderful !! I remember growing up , my mother made almost all of our clothes , sometimes she would take things apart & make into something new ( called upcycle now that it is more trendy !!! ) I need to get back to my sewing more !!! When I was pregnant with my oldest son I made all of my maternity clothes and a lot of his clothes with my first sewing machine.. a Singer Featherweight ... would love to have that machine back now !!! Traded it off for a newer model that did fancy things !!
