Grand Opening Giveaway Day Three

Todays Giveaway and interview are with the lovely Pam of Warm Hugs Design


How many vintage sheets do you have right now?
Twenty and growing! Oh, actually twenty-one as I have a set on my guest room bed too. 

Any fun projects planned using VS? 
A quilt top. I've been using vintage sheets as backings to my quilts for years and am so excited to make them front and center in my projects! 

How long have you been sewing? 
Did a little sewing in high school, but really took it up when my children were young some 20 years ago. Made them clothes, lap quilts, super man capes, etc. Very fun and a great creative outlet.

What or who inspired you to start sewing with VS's?
As I said, I've used vintage sheets for years for backing of my quilts because I love the patterns, colors and cost of using VS instead of new fabric! Then I saw the pillowcase dress idea and decided to upcycle vintage pillowcases into this design. I especially love vintage embroidered linens. I recently started making craft/vendor aprons with these pillowcases and using vintage sheets for the waistband and ties. Both the dresses and aprons along with my VS fat quarters can be found in my Etsy shop .





How long have you been collecting vs's?
About five years.

Do you have a fav vs print?
They all are my favorite. Haven't found a VS I didn't like yet.

Any prints you are coveting at the moment?
Yes I do have one,  see photo below. It is such a sweet color of pinks. Love it!





How long have you been selling VS's?
Just for a few months now. I sold two full sheets in my Etsy shop and recently made up bundle packs for sale. Can't wait to see what folks make with these adorable prints.

Where do you find your VS's?
Mostly estate sales and thrift shops.
