I Love It - Now What Do I Do?


We've finally gotten my MIL settled I think.  I've had the worst headache for 2 day's and nothing seems to help.  So hopefully I'll be better tomorrow and can share a little more with you.  

It's been so long between post I just thought I'd show you (Just scroll through the pictures with the button  above) this fabric I found a few weeks ago.  Well one piece of fabric and one really cool sheet and some lace that I tea stained.  Now I just have to figure out what I want to do with them.  Isn't that vintage ballerina fabric gorgeous!   And I love the Nora and Charles knit sheet.  It would really make a cute pair of pajamas or maybe a pillow.  Y'all give me some idea's.  I immediately thought of Paula Claire when I found it.  I would make a tote bag out of it but like I said it's like a tee shirt knit bed sheet.  I love to sew with sheets because even a twin provides lots of fabric for the money.  I need to make something I can sale on Etsy.  Any and all ideas are welcomed.

Hope y'all have a wonderful Wednesday.  ((HUGS))....Tracy :)


  1. morn'n Tracy! cute fabrics, the cowboy one reminds me of Paula Clare also!
    I think PJs would be perfect for both of those fabrics, or lampshades, pillows or even curtains.
    Happy Wednesday!

  2. Hi Tracy,

    Definitely PJ's.........all the way! Some "one size" fits all kind of things, whether for adults or youth............I'd wear both patterns just because they are vintage looking. Roll-up art studio's for youngsters is another option. Use the cowboy knit and the ballerina fabric on the outside, and a coordinating cotton fabric on the inside. Sew in sections with pockets for brushes, crayons, pencils, and little zippered pockets for erasers etc. Roll it up with ties and you've got a portable art studio for your kids to take anywhere. Just a couple of thoughts.


  3. Tracy,

    I don't sew, so I have no input there... ;)

    I'm glad to hear your MIL is getting settled. Been praying for you as the Lord leads; hoping you have a time of rest! (And creativity!)

    Love & hugs,

  4. The cowboy fabric is pretty cool. I saw these pillows that have pockets for kids to stash their favorite stuff inside. Do kids still play with coy boy and indian figures? What a great gift for a boy!

  5. Hi Tracy, You are always so kind to let us know about others in need of our prayers. How are you holding up these days with your MIL? I know your heart smiled to find this wonderful fabric. Take care of yourself. On my mind, Elizabeth
