My Vintage Vanity: Sewing Patterns

**Have a peek into my vintage collection.**
The vintage community is so generous. It never ceases to amaze me how resourceful, helpful, and kind my fellow vintage sellers can be. I recently received a sizable package of vintage patterns from the super sweet Emily of Tea Street Vintage! She was given a huge lot of them and sent me the ones that she couldn't sell due to missing pattern pieces. Lucky for me the missing pieces are just simple facings and being that I know patternmaking, I can easily and willingly make new ones! Emily knew that and sent them to me free of charge! Thank you Emily...I can't wait to get started on my new projects!
Here's a small sampling of the many she sent.

I must get started on this one right away!

So simple...but I really love it!

This can go in many directions!

Please visit Emily's Etsy store, Tea Street Vintage for some amazing vintage finds. (psst..she's having a sale!) and follow her on Twitter @teastreetvtg.
5/26/10 Edit- Emily is now offering my dear readers ( that's you!) 10% off any sewing patterns in her shop, Tea Street Vintage, when you mention Bobbins and Bombshells in the Notes to Sellers! She will be listing more patterns this week! Don't forget to mention you read about it here! Happy Shopping!
