  1. Lora, I remember most of these ideas, and I love them all! Thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm–pinned!

  2. I loved seeing all of your ideas. I usually JUST CAN’T cut up an in-good-condition vintage linen, but “wounded” stuff is fair game. As a dollhouse lover, I have separated crocheted motifs from dresser scarves into doilies for the dollhouse people! Edges of linens with crocheted trim/lace/etc. make great doll clothes. One of my favorite things to do is make cloth Christmas gift bags with 2 ribbons (bought on clearance after Christmas or thrifted) sewed into a side seam for the tie. I use the hems and selvedge edges of cloth and tablecloths for the top edge to minimize my sewing. I make some to sell, some to donate to our church bazaar, and some for me. The days of considering it a “good” Christmas if we filled the woodstove 4 times with discarded wrapping paper is GONE!!!

      Bits and pieces are perfect for dollhouses! You’re so creative, Kathy; love to hear about all your creations! Yes, the less-than-perfect can always be turned into something else!

  9. You always have the best ideas and I’m so glad you posted this! I forgot about the Easter eggs with trim so I need to do that this weekend! But the chair cushions and pillows are over-the-top fantastic! And the added buttons – I can’t even with those little cuties. Thank you so much for joining us. Grinned and pinned.
