Needles-n-Pins Stitcheries: Vintage Sunflowers

I know it is only the middle of August, but you know I start to think about fall this time of year and the flowers are starting to die away a little bit. This time of year makes me think of late summer and sunflowers so I thought I would look at some vintage sunflower things on Etsy. So let's go see what we can find. :)




I use to have a casserole dish like this, but mine didn't have these sunflowers on them. Pretty colorful dish from ShowMeShabby.





Here is a nice sunflower tin from MtnLaurelVintage. You could use this tin for storing a number of things. 





Are you going to have a fall picnic? Use this sunflower tablecloth from PriscillasHierlooms. Very colorful and lots of sunflowers on it. 





Now this is a vintage t-shirt I would like. Look at the colorful sunflowers! You can get this one from skippyhaha





There are lots of vintage sunflower items available on Etsy so why not go on over and take a peek. :)



Have a great week!

Needles-n-Pins Stitcheries: Upcycle Back To School

Yep....getting to be that time of year again isn't it. I can't believe kids are starting to go back to school. Was that a fast summer or what! Some of you will be starting that back to school shopping so why not check out some of these upcycled finds from Etsy. 




BJ Anthony Designs has this drawstring backpack that was made from a pair corduroy pants. Looks like something the kids would like. 




Now I know what I can do with all those old floppy disks that I have sitting in the drawer! ReComputing has this one. 






Ok.....I have seen lots of upcycled things, but check out this notebook cover from LeeEmporium. It is made from a potato chip bag!! Now that is different. 





This is just a few items I found on Etsy. Why not head on over and see what you can find. 

Have a great week!

Needles-n-Pins Stitcheries: Making a Beach Bag

So there is still time to hit the beach before summer and if your beach bag is worn out and you need another one here is a really quick video from SewVeryEasy. Looks like it is a very easy one to make too. If I had a beach to go to I might make it myself. LOL! :)

Happy Sewing!
