Back To School

We have never really shopped for school clothes at the begining of the school year.  I try to pick up "nearly new or stylish vintage" things at thrift stores on my regular rounds.  I overheard as a friend complimented one of my daughters, she replied:  "Yeah, I don't really know where this stuff comes from.  It just shows up outside my bedroom door."  The black shoes were decoupaged with copies of photos & art images, then I glued some tiny silk flowers I had.  The tan shoes were just rubber stamped.  The plain black jacked was embroidered around the edges in a blanket stitch.   Some felt flowers were added after I cut the shoulder pads out. These were all relatively quick projects.   I recently traded an art glass vase for some awesome fabric that looks like a vintage map.  I'm planing on stitching up a couple of tote bags!
