24 May

may 23, 2010. when we were little, my mom used to sew all of our clothes. i still have some of my dresses that matched my sister’s and some of the doll clothes that my mom also made. when i was at their house, i found two containers full of vintage fabrics in the attic. with just a glance at the contents, my heart went all soft and sentimental and i was instantly flooded with childhood memories. that blue, red, and white fabric peeking in right-hand corner? my dad’s pajamas that he wore for years. the brown gingham?  a dress for my sister’s fisher price jenny and mandy dolls. the red corduroy? christmas bloomer pants (why would she make those?). the red yarn? our own handmade raggedy ann and andy dolls.

i don’t know what i can make with all those bits of remnant fabric, but i am completely inspired to make something that will tie the past and present together.
