    So many great options! I’ve been hearing a lot more about re purposing vintage fabrics lately… maybe that’ll be a bigger trend this year :)

    ‘Repurposing vintage fabric’ sounds like being thrifty to me! I almost always work with fabric left-overs and recycled, some old, some not, but more from an economy reason than the desire to follow the trend…I love vintage fabric, the smell, the different texture, the patterns, and even when it has not lasted well and looks a bit odd!
