Vintage sewing finds

I learned to knit about 2 1/2 years ago, and since then, I have been knitting most of the time, and I haven't been sewing as much, but lately I have been trying to sew a lot more. I love vintage patterns and I have quite a collection now. I wanted to show you a couple of vintage sewing items that I found at an antique store last week. First, this adorable sewing basket!

It has pictures of sewing supplies on the top and on the inside are holes for thread to go through. It also has handles that are threaded through the top and attached to the inside, so you pull the top open, and pull the handles to close it. I love it! I also got a couple new vintage patterns

I have also been going through my sewing stash, and I found this pattern that I want to make as soon as possible!

I love the skinny, slightly cropped style, and I've always wanted pants like Audrey Hepburn in Funny Face

I think the pattern is a similar style. I have also watched seasons 1-3 of Mad Men, Mad Men - Season One and I can't wait for the 4th, so that probably explains some of my recent inspiration :]

I love Betty.

Also, I made this granola yesterday, it is so amazing.

So todays post had lots of pictures, and went off topic at the end :] Have a nice day!
