Vintage Linen Crafts – Bloomers, Bangles, Bonnets & More

While visiting one of my favorite antique malls yesterday afternoon, I came across a super darling booth that is really creative with their goods and displays. The booth had lots of my favorites; Vintage Linens! The booth not only sells vintage linens like tablecloths and tea towels but they also have some really neat re-purposed linens like baby bloomers, toddler pants, bangle bracelets, and sun bonnets and all of these are made from vintage linens. Above are some photos I snapped so you can all see.

This got me thinking that if someone has some sewing skills or is handy with a hot glue gun that they can whip up some really neat and pretty items using vintage linens. Some ideas would be to make headbands, curtains and valences, bags, totes, purses, pillow cases, seat cushions, tea cozies, aprons, stuffed toys and even embellish T-Shirts and jeans!  I found this neat website that has lots of crafts and projects for using vintage linens – CRAFTS HERE.
