I met  Lindsey of  ‘The Village Hippy’ on facebook some time ago. Such a lovely person with a kind and positive outlook on life.  She makes great bags, hangings and memo boards using vintage fabric, buttons and bindings.

Here is one the memo boards she made with linen fabric she bought from me, the design is ‘flowers waltz’ a 1960’s design from Jonelle.


Recently she has turned her hand to dress making and like everything she does, makes a fabulous job of it.  The finishing of this ‘buttercup’ Doris dress is wonderful. She has adapted a vintage pattern and used 1970’s St Michael  yellow daisy fabric for the sleeves, frilled hem and binding.


What a clever person..
