Sewing Patterns as Inspiration

While looking for tissue pom poms for a post last week, I stumbled across some ideas using old sewing patterns. I love this – especially if you are looking for a vintage look. You can find old patterns at thrift stores for cheap, and you could use them to make tissue pom poms or even flowers.
