Cindy and I will be heading off to the "Farm Chicks" show in Spokane on Friday.
Here is how my vintage shopping cart looks finished.
This was a special gift from Cindy and I wanted to do her proud!
I am sure I will be putting some of her finds in this cart on the weekend!
As you can see there was alot of laundry pegs used to take measurements and hold everything in place.
Vintage lace and buttons finished off the project.
I had fun making it..in the meantime my sewing machine was annoyed with me and made a terrible mess with my bobbin and thread so off I went to get it fixed and a quick button hole lesson.
Who knew that there were so many different bobbin sizes and you needed a specific one for your machine??? I do now..the machine and I made peace with each other and here is my very happy result.
I am sure there is an easier way and when I get my gifted cart from Christa I will get help from Alanna who is a marvelous quiltmaker!
Jim made a great comment saying that he could see that when Cindy and I were much older (than we are now) we both would be pulling these vintage carts along pointing out thrifty things to each other....
he knows us well!
