Vintage French toile fabric pieces at Rag Rescue

If you love toile, you'll love these pieces. They are great for adding to cards, patchwork, felt work or other crafts that require embellishments. All of the pieces have been shipped over from France and I like to use every little piece, hence the packets with more than one piece in.

Vintage hexagonal patches - Comment and get a chance to get two for free

I have lots of these vintage hexagonal patches which came from a damaged quilt. We have carefully unpicked the good ones so that they can be used again.

How would you use these patches.

Send in your comments to this page and I will have a draw on Saturday and the winning owner of the comment will get two of these patches free to start you off on  your creation.

Lovely Victorian ribbon is also being listed tomorrow.

How do you use Vintage buttons?

Today I was sent this photograph by one of my customers. 

A while ago she had bought some vintage buttons from me. After seeing a pattern in the 'Making' magazine for a cushion cover, she decided to knit it. In order to secure the cushion she used some of the buttons she had bought from Rag Rescue. I'm sure you will agree she has made a brilliant job.

Well done Barbara

I'm sure Barbara would love to hear your comments.
I'd love to see pictures showing how you use vintage buttons and I'm sure others would like to see them too. Send your photo's to
Sandie-k(at)tiscali(dot)co(dot) uk
and I'll post them on this blog.

English and French vintage fabric at Rag Rescue tomorrow

Just look at these great designs on the vintage fabrics which will be listed tomorrow on 
the Rag Rescue website.
What a glorious sunny day it has been today. I watched the young men walking past my window on their way back from the beach clad only in shorts, boy, were their bodies glowing red! Hmmmm!

Now that all of my accounts are ready for delivery to the accountant on Monday I've been able to get back to sorting out new stock to list. Today was ironing and cutting day, tomorrow will be a photography day and Monday a washing day. Just hope the good weather holds, not only so that I can dry the fabrics outside but  I hope to take Poppy out to some secluded spot alongside the bay, away from the tourists, in the SUN.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend and if you have signed up for the newsletter which contains next weeks listings, it will be with you early so that you can enjoy this beautiful weather.
