Vintage Workbaskets and Small Purses
We took a daytrip to visit several antique shops last weekend and I found a few books (I like to collect older books and found a great Alfred Hitchcock story collection) and these neat 1950s Workbasket magazines. I like older magazines that have the hand drawn ads and illustrations. Reminds me of Darrin Stephens in Betwitched hand drawing his ad campaigns. Did you watch that show? I still love it.
I've been making purses lately and made a few Princess Purses with this pattern from Moda Bakeshop. It is so cute and very easy! Cute for little girls.
I've also made a selection of frame purses for our Christmas Craft show using frames from WhileBabyNaps they have great directions and supplies. I love making them. At first I was a little nervous putting the frames on but they get easier the more you make.
I like making them in different sizes, patterns and colors. I think I may need to keep one but haven't decided which one yet. Wishing you well if you're back east where Sandy is! Hope you stay safe.
