Vintage Tea Towels and Pandas.
My younger sister sent me some tea towels that had belonged to our mom. I was able to make some cute Pockets out them. I like these Pockets so much that I went to look for more Vintage Tea Towels on-line and my goodness, the ones that were nice like these were $20 (usd) each!! I'm only charging $20 (usd) for each Pocket. I might have to start going to flea markets (which is not something I particularly enjoy doing.) $20!!!
I found some red panda print fabric. It's a heavy 100% cotton, made in USA (rare) stashed in a trunk. It's from the 1970s. I put it through the washing process twice and the musty smell went away. I think it made a cute bag. The pocket on the inside has a panda image on it, too. Cute!
These will be for sale at the street fair on Saturday. Whatever doesn't sell, I'll put into my Etsy shop.
