Obsession...And it's still growing!

It's safe to say that I think I have an obsession with vintage sheets (among other things!). They are the focus of my thrifting every Friday afternoon immediately after work. I've managed to acquire over 70 sheets, and I haven't even managed to count the pillowcases and napkins. Ugh! It's kinda sad, but they are so pretty! and look well coordinated with one another. That's my excuse anyway, lol, what I tell myself to convince me to buy just another. I'm running outta space. I don't have enough space as it is, but I've managed to fill one of my shelving cases two-thirds full with my linen collection. All I can say is, SWAP ANYONE (lol)?!


Quilted vintage sheet laptop bag-finito!

I was in need of a new laptop bag, one that was more personalized to my taste. Thumbing through my various sewing books, I came across Jenny Ryan's Sew Darn Cute and found the Ladylike laptop tote. It was along the same lines of wat I wanted but not exactly what I wanted. (Besides her dimensions were a bit small for my laptop.) So I got out a bunch of yellow vintage sheets and some new yellow polka dot fabric. I decided to piece 2 inch strips and embroider a flock of birds on the front of it. I like the out come, but the only thing is I can't fit my laptop in it (lmao!). The zipper is too shortl otherwise I could fit it in. Darn! I sure hate to take out that damned zipper... Oh well! It makes a cute overnight bag now!
