I love to sew. Sometimes more than other things.
I also love to find vintage supplies to use. Buttons are the most collectible, but I tend to find everyday things.
Zippers in fun retro colors, bias tape, hem lace or rickrack. All things can be used in their normal way or new fun ways.
An asymmetrical collar that opens with a zipper anyone? How about appliques with bias tape in fun shapes, maybe it wraps around a spot in something you can't get out.
So now we are using products that are old but still good and keeping items in our closet for longer.
Sounds very green.
