Antique lace - great for Valentines Day projects

Lots of lovely antique lace and vintage fabric square being listed next week.
Great for all those Valentines Day projects.

I shall start tomorrow by listing eight pieces of Antique lace.
I don't normally clean my lace as dealers usually like to clean it themselves using their own methods. However this lace had been stained with tea as was the fashion at the time. I've spent a week cleaning it so it is back to it's original colour and suitable for use by all the designers, students and crafters that buy from Rag Rescue.

The lace and vintage fabric will be listed on alternative days so you don't get bored.
So here are tomorrows listings -

Wonderful vintage Kensitas cigarette woven silks - c.1930s

These beautiful silk flowers were given away free in Kensitas Cigarette packets in the 1930s.
They came in a little card with a description of the flower and history.

The silk flowers I found do not have the cards but they would look superb incorporated into a quilt, patchwork or on a bag or cushion.
These eight silks will be listed at the Rag Rescue website tomorrow Tuesday 18th January

Eileen's 1920's inspired flapper headband

A while ago Eileen bought the black velvet piece from the Rag Rescue website. Yesterday she sent me this photo of what she had created with black velvet piece - a wonderful 1920's inspired black flapper headband - fascinator.

I think you will agree that she has used this velvet to it's best advantage and turned an unused, unwanted vintage item into a thing of beauty.

thank you for sharing this with us Eileen.

Vintage scrappy parcels being added tomorrow to Rag Rescue

As I only had one vintage fabric 'scrappy parcel' left for sale on the website I thought I had better make some more as they sell out very quickly.
Tomorrow six scrappy parcels will be added to the Rag Rescue website.
Each Scrappy parcel contains 20 off cuts of vintage fabric.

More vintage fabric scrapbags

As all of the vintage fabric scrapbags that I listed on Sunday were sold straight away, you will find eight more tomorrow at the Rag Rescue website

As the light has been very poor this last week, I'm afraid the photo's are not up to more normal standard, so for this I apologise.
