Thrifting Thursday – Embroidery Patterns

Every year the Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary has a fabric sale in my area. Besides the fun fabrics, they also have all sorts of patterns. I can’t resist looking through the vintage embroidery patterns, the paper itself is beautiful! A few patterns I’ve bought no longer work as iron-ons, but then you can use the paper to cover some boxes (like a permanent wrapping paper) or frame them even. I recently found a roll of vintage wrapping paper that I am so in love with, and honestly I could tell the people at the thrift shop thought I was absolutely bonkers haha. I’m planning to buy some paper mache boxes to permanently adhere the gift wrap to–so I can have it around for as long as possible.

    I just found the best thrift store in the next town over from me. They have piles of fabric, patterns, and sewing goods that would take hours to go through. I need you to be my thrifting buddy and get some of your luck on me. :)
