Scrappy vintage patches and buttons

I love this vintage fabric and wanted to feature the gorgeous late 70’s/early 80’s print, so I made buttons and patches for @Magpie for the fill a pouch swap. I also made this Minecraft? patch because I found that tiny scrap in a bag of fabric i recently received. It was too cute not to use.

I love them! They are SO WEIRD & AWESOME! Now I just need to figure out how to use them in something special. I have an idea…

Fun stuff!

When I hear vintage I always think 1920s to '50s. It makes me feel…um, old….when the item was popular when I was in high school.

News flash, steiconi! You gotta own the old. It’s not just a way to get senior Tuesday discounts.

You used these fabrics in the best way. It’s like they were made for these methods!

For sure. “Old” is only a descriptor of creatures “failing to die for a lot of years in a row”! We have plenty of other adjectives to judge things (negatively or positively) that have been around awhile that we can keep “old” just to describe longevity. I am working to reject and refuse any shame associated with the indicators that I am still alive after 5+ decades.
