Vintage Finds and a little DIY

 Every time I go to Wholly Craft I can't help but picking up some fabric from their vintage section. I also found these wonderful old circular needles by Susan Bates!

I am trying out a size and padded style zippies as something to eventually sell at Craft Shows but these are a few of my samples. Not the fabric I would choose but the size with a strap as well as the construction were the things I was testing.  There are still a few things I would like to tweek on this before I make them from Vinyl and put them up for sale. They are double padded and will fit the average sized camera lens. Things I will probably do to these are embroidery to add a little person touch. One I'm sending to a photographer penpal and the other when I am satisfied with the Embroidery I will put up as a Giveaway on the blog! 

Here is a close up of these fantastic vintage circular knitting needles. I can't decide if I want to just hang them up as decor or take them our for a test spin. The nylon makes them super smooth and there is no jointing in the thread and the needles so it should more very smoothly. I am keeping an eye out for more of them to add to my new collection.

Lastly these are the fabrics I picked up 100% polyester but so much fun. I know with the white one I plan on making a skirt, perhaps a wrap skirt. The green is a pit thicker with a pique style texture, so I was thinking shorts but we shall see what they actually turn out to be.

Did you pick up anything extraordinary over the weekend? I'd love to see it!
