Believe it or not out of all the vintage patterns that I have collected over the years I have yet to find a costume pattern. This is a lovely image collected via google and cleaned up nicely with photo shop. Although I have purchased many over the years, the modern ones, to sew up for my little ones. None are as cute as this. This would be darling on a paper bag.
Today I got back around to my ornaments...hopefully for the final time. Crepe paper causes such havoc with me. I want it to lay so perfect and it just defies perfection.
All of my glittered card stock has been cut to size. Tiny add ons to decorate each of the doorsteps. Ribbon ties to hand them from branches and boughs.
Vintage book pages that have yellowed so perfectly you couldn't mimic it if you tried. Old black buttons and tulle poofs just to finish the bottom.
A sweet haunted house.
Two different versions of crepe paper I have yet to decide? I am leaning toward the left one because it seems more geometrically correct...that's my OCD talking again. These great little house patterns came from the wonderful Cathe Holden at Just Something I Made.
I am still on the hunt for a vintage apron pattern too...One of these days I will turn the corner in a sale and there it will be. I am just being patient.
