Objects old, vintage, hand made or upcyled, and old techniques with a modern twist

Vintage Embroidered Fabric 1

Today I have been looking through some of my vintage hand embroidered fabrics- they seem to multiply when I’m not looking! It is amazing how much work has gone into some hand embroidered antique and vintage fabrics, and it’s a shame that they get thrown away if they have a rip or stain. I use damaged pieces in new projects, and am able to cut them up guilt free as they were no longer usable in their original form, even if most of the fabric is undamaged.

It is nice to give a new life to something that was made with such care and skill, upcycling something slightly damaged to make it desirable again!
