A coworker of mine collects and sells vintage items, and she had some sample boards of trim from the 1960s that she couldn't seem to sell, so she passed them on to me. Sample board lengths of trim aren't all that useful, these ones ranging from 6 inches to 8.5 inches in length. But it was enough decorate some little simply designed wristlet clutches!
I love de-stash projects! (Although, I did have to buy a few zippers... no matter how massive a collection of sewing paraphernalia you've got, you never seem to have everything you need!)
My friend got me this cute Kawaii Alice in Wonderland fabric for my birthday several years ago, so I tracked down some coordinates to make a quilt out of it. I used the 'Suzette' pattern from clothworks.com (which no longer seems to be available).
