    But it sure is neat! This whole line of fabric, ďMs. Sew & SewĒ by Dan Morris for RJR fabrics is right up a vintage sewing enthusiastís alley.

    The line is out of print now, but I found that internet quilt shops and Etsy and eBay sellers still have it. Our own Nanís Favorite Fabrics had the safety pins on black and this really cute scissors print in this line too.
    Now... just need to think up some creative uses for them!

    I love sewing fabric, but can't come up with creative ideas for them. Be sure to post pics when you do.

    I have a fat quarter of the sewing machines and one with tape measures. I don't know what I'll make yet. For some reason the other fabrics won't load on my computer. Oh Well.

    My friend brought me the fabric with the sewing machines and black background from Florida when she went in April! I haven't done anything with it yet though. . .

    I thought about a quilting tote or a wall hanging. Cut the blocks apart, use the safety pins for the lattice & fussy cut the scissors for corner blocks! cute fabric

    Thats what my sewing room curtains are being made out of. The valances are the panel cut in half in black And the curtains are the all over print in cream. They only had a yard left so I am having to make do. The store didn't have any of the matching fabrics so I got another that blended. I love that fabric it is done well and not cutesy.

    a question ladies! I saw several quilts "pre-quilting" being held together with safety pins. Is it wrong to use quilt pins?? I mean c'mon, theres nothing to compare to being stabbed in the (unmentionable) area with a 2in. quilt pin as you are rolling it up under the machine arm!

    I like the pin fabric, I had not seen that one before. I do have the one with the scissors, but like most not sure what I am going to do with it yet.
