I Googled vintage camper restoration and found the following. Maybe you will get some inspiration. There are also links to suppliers in there.

She did some amazing work. I never knew that rugs were made that way. My favorite is the one that is family related. They are all pieces of art but that one is beyond description wonderful.

You did a fabulous job. Congratulations on doing such a beautiful job. How long did it take to complete your living room and your dining room.

Do you, or anyone else, know if you can use recycled frames from old purses? I've never thought about it before but I've run across some interesting frames at the thrift store or yard sales. Just a thought.

if you wanted long sleeves and weren't into the contrast idea you can probably make a cuff of the same fabric separated by a band of ribbon or a strip of piping to disguise where the print doesn't match up.

This is a great idea. Thanks.

That hat is fabulous. I've considered using that pattern before. I've made a couple of hats and they aren't that difficult. My biggest problem is that the hats from the big four are too small. I have a big head and I need to add about a half inch to the largest size and I can't figure out how to do the math.

Burda has a hat pattern that is the right size. I have yet to make it but I'm tracing the pattern here soon after I make a couple of other things. Very nice.

I am making the view A of the pattern below but I screwed up and I need some opinions. Evidently I can't tell the difference between a 2 and a 5. As a result, the sleeve came up about three inches short. I have two choices. I can continue on and make it a 3/4 sleeve jacket or I can can piece together some fabric to add to the sleeve.

The fabric is a stretch twill in a white background with a print in different greens. I have some green linen that matches the fabric. As a matter of fact the green linen is from the skirt that I bought the jacket fabric to go with. So I will have about three inches of linen at the end of the sleeve with a sleeve facing from the patterned fabric.

I can't decide what to do. Suggestions?
