I’m so excited to share another great project from Lulu Spencer!  Do you have a box of old pattern packages, or even newer ones? Framing them is a an easy, affordable and creative way to give your  sewing or craft room walls a unique, colorful fashion make-over that’s fun and funky. If you have sewing pattern packages that are just sitting in a box; dig them out and give this a try!

Re-purposed Framed Vintage Sewing Pattern

I love how she left the Simplicity label on the side visible and these 60’s pj’s are super cute! This project is simple to make and if you don’t have any pattern packages you can usually find vintage ones at most thrift stores. Remember – it doesn’t have to be a retro pattern; you might want to frame a pattern  of something special you’ve made or something you’ve never made but love just the same.

  2. Great alternative but I don’t know if you can capture the wrinkles, the history of use that gives it character but great point about sun damage – needs to be placed out direct sunlight. Thanks Anna!

  3. Or just… photocopy them so the light exposure doesn’t damage them and let someone who actually wants to use them enjoy them instead? What a novel idea that is!
