Thrifted Goodies and Vintage Pattern Giveaway


I snuck away for a bit of thrifting while in Wisconsin and hit the jackpot some cheap craft goodies. There were hundreds of patterns, knitting needles and tons of notions. I kept throwing stuff in my basket until I realized I didn't know how much the patterns were. So here are some of my goodies.


5 pairs of knitting needles, 10 bits of rick-rac and binding, some great vintage fabric and other fabric odds and ends,3 skeins of embroidery yarn.


14 vintage patterns including a great set of 15 "bazaar crafts" for kids. I also got Annie a pair of Hanna Anderson Clogs for 50 cents, 2 books including Mike Mulligan and the Steam Shovel in spanish and the game Perfection. And 2 vintage yellow stripe pillowcases destined to skirts.

And the grand total for all this goodness...$13.68. Not bad. I love a big bags of goodies for under 20 dollars.

In celebration of my score I thought I would share with y'all. So here are 4 patterns from my outing.


Pattern 1-Dresden Plate Pattern, includes directions to make an apron, a quilt,floor pillow and more. Uncut

Pattern 2- Size 141/2 Dress and Ves Pattern (37" Bust) Dress patten is cut but it appears intact.


Pattern 3- Butterick Embroidery Transfers "Ethnic embroidery transfers; eleven different motifs, more thatn one of each" Unused.

Pattern 4- Girls size 10 (chest 28 1/2") Sleep-suit in two lengths with front-wrap robe and hat. Cut but seems intact.

See one that you like? I'm giving them away. Leave me a comment with the Pattern # (1,2,3, or 4) you are interested in and I will contact you to get address etc. (Please only request one pattern and I will send to the first person who requests) and send it out to ya.
Alright, I think that does it.
Have a great day.

I think I need to hit spell check before I post these. I really do know how to spell and "destined to skirts" and "I love a big bags of goodies" is just embarressing. But that is a whole other post.
