I found an estate sale yesterday of a fellow seamster. She had been sewing and quilting for a very long time. She had an amazing stash. She had boxes and boxes and boxes of fabric that women were hauling out, but what we most had in common were her bags of notions.
I grabbed four giant freezer bags of stuff and the handful of lace seam bindings. I got so many great things!
Piping! Including the red and green polka dot piping I must add!
About 20 packages of bias tape. My favorites are the polka dots and stripes.
I got an entire bag of elastics!
I love the rainbow and striped ones. The one I am holding kind of reminds me on men's underwear.
Hem Facing! I love lace hem facing.
And look at all the seam binding there on the bottom left.
Here is a bunch of snaps and hook and eyes and bedazzling and googly eyes. I like that wooden belt buckle.
And finally a sack of lace. Big lace, small lace, colored and white lace...it is all here. I don't use lace very often as an embellishment, but there are a few here I would really like to use.
What a score for $12!
