Vintage Sewing Patterns

I ran across this website today and was immediately intrigued by all the ideas for reusing old sewing patterns.  My favorite is using the pictures on vintage pattern envelopes to make magnets.  I also liked the flowers shown in the picture below.  Think of all the uses for these flowers…make a whole bouquet of them.  One could make little tiny ones and attach them to a handmade journal.

Crafting a Green World is the name of the website. “Crafting a Green World features do-it-yourself projects that incorporate reused, recycled, and natural materials. “

When you get to the website  go down below the  picture of the magnets and click on “Dont’ Scrap the Selvedge. What a chair!  Talk about using every little bit!
