course the finishing product! So I was very happy when I found this one at a local thrift store for just $5!
The actual sewing looks to have been done in the 60's but most of the fabric is (we are guessing) to be from the 30's up to the early 60's! There is for sure some flower sack fabric mixed in. Such a fun unique piece!
So I chose the area that I wanted to work on.
And ironed it.
enough fabric for the hem.
I also put on an embroidery hoop around my working area.
Then once you are done with that side, take off embroidery hoop and pin your next side.
Sew across that side..........do the same with the next (3rd.) side.
It will be a little lumpy.:)
Now, what would have made this find even better is if it had top stitching to follow.But it does not have any so I just did a simple star over my square.
I love how the star turned out!
Saturdays are my usual sewing days so keep checking in! I will try to share them! :)
I thought that I would share a few pictures of these buttons that I received from my aunt.
(note the 10cent price in the corner)
