I adore old patterns. I can't seem to pass them by when I'm out treasure hunting. Many of them find their way into my etsy shop. Recently I ran onto some that were incomplete, so I re-purposed them into these tags. It was a fun, sit in the chair, and sort of watch TV project. I think I like these old sewing things, because they take me back to my young days when all the women in my family got together and created beautiful things out of cloth. Actually, we still do that. My mom and aunt and sometimes my cousin and me will get together and shop for fabric and sew forever in an assembly line fashion. Just imagine dozens of nightgowns being stitched up. Such fun times with lots of giggling, sewing, and telling of stories. I usually get the easy jobs like ironing, sewing straight seams, or cutting out the pieces. I'm the novice in the group and sometimes even get the job of making sandwiches or getting sodas. I love it all, because it's about the time we spend together.
