Crafty Pictures

I got this cute card from a friend for my birthday this year, and I thought it was just too nice to recycle so I added it to my "pictures to buy frames for" pile.


I found it again recently when planning some long-overdue shopping for frames and was inspired to do a bit of window shopping for more sewing-themed prints (to decorate the craft room of my dreams!). Here are some of my favourites...

Sewing Mends the Soul by hellomonkey:


Vintage Sewing Collection by runningwithcrayons:


Vintage Sewing Kit by clareowendrawing:
Also spied in her sold items - a lovely Make Do and Mend print:


Make Do and Mend by farouche:


Make Do and Mend (letterpress printed onto vintage dressmaking paper!) by printfortheloveofwood:


And finally, not a print at all but some lovely fabric I'm adding to my wishlist ...

So nice! They would make a lovely sewing themed wall in pretty frames - maybe from the flea-market? :)

What a great birthday card. I love all the vintage pictures and photos. I wish I had a craft room, but I will dream on.

Your little post just reminded me of a lovely print I came across today on Etsy that fits your theme. Here is the link:

Isn't it darling? If I ever have a craft studio I would decorate with all sorts of prints and artwork like this!

When I have pictures & postcards I like but don't know what to do with I clip them onto a piece of string I have hung across my room like a washing line. When I have too many on there I put them in a photo album :)

Thanks for the links guys - there are so many nice sewing-themed things on Etsy, aren't there? Oh to have a craft room to put them all in...

Love the idea of a washing line with pictures on it. I might have to start rotating the prints on my walls soon, I'm really starting to run out of space!!
