My Trendy Mother in Law!
At my 79 years old Mother in Law's house I saw a pillowcase. It was the hypest, coolest bedlinen pattern I had seen for a long time! And ...I was really wondering how she could be so trendy, considering not only her age, but also the fact that she lives in a sleepy village in Jutland (Denmarks countryside) while I do my shopping in Copenhagen and sorroundings.
Well, of course, the pillowcase happened to be an original from the 70's.....
Anyway she gave it to me and I have now tranformed it into a softie for Rubens teddy and some pantalettes for Kirsten.
The pantalettes are made with a beginner friendly pattern from onion.
The giraffe is freestyling...
Does anyone know a place for nostalgic sewing patterns for kids?
