Vintage inspired Flower Power Apron

I Love making hand made items. I had fun making this apron. I have Vintage fabric all over my house. Well if you can not cook, you could just wear this apron and look cute in the kitchen!

I found a cute Susie Sad Eyes Dolly the other day. She is the size of Blythe. My poor dolly has holes in her clothes so I think I will make her a new wardrobe out of all the vintage fabric I have. I will post her new fashions in my etsy shop.

My life as an artist

Well we had a Blizzard today! I hate Shoveling all of that Snow! Good time to make a craft to go along with the weather! So I created "Shaving Cream Snowmen" Check them out in my Etsy! http://www.tessimal.etsy.com

They are great to make with kids when there is no school and you have them cooped up in the house during those winter snow days!

1960s vintage fabrics - where to find it

Looking for flower power prints?

All that groovy 1960s vintage fabric, especially bark cloth, is rare today.   Bark cloth is not made today and is hard to find.  Old prints are treasures to find when searching the internet.  

All vintage fabric can be interesting but honestly old cordoroy or old solids are not that different from what you can get today.  The really good stuff is the old calico fabric,  psychedelic fabric,  barkcloth, cute fabric, cute prints, cute animal prints , cutesy fabric prints, and vintage prints like paisleys and those weird 1950s style atronaut-era pajama prints.
