The 80’s, considered one of the most fun eras…brace yourselves, the 80’s are always making a comeback. Can’t wait to see other team members posts in this thread.
Here’s an 80’s item listed for that special “Working Girl”…yes this outfit probably made a commuters trip or two on the ferry. A great outfit for Wall Street in a special shade of green khaki.

This upcycled ring is made from colourful 80s buttons and certainly captures the (sometimes) garish fashion of that decade

I saw this fabric at my fabric store and love it. The Norwegian Christmas pattern and the polka dots in my favorite color combo. First I want to sew loops, one with polka dots and one with the Christmas pattern. But the ‘Snood’ was the better solution to show the beauty of the pattern. A few days later I stay again in the store after I find out, that this pattern is perfect for a winter skirt.

One of the most fun things about digital design for me is creating repeating seamless patterns. I have lots of digital paper packs in my shop, and lots more started that I have yet to finish on my computer. Sometimes before I get a set finished I have another idea … so, lots to work on at any time. This set is special to me because I learned and used a new way to add or layer flowers or other design randomly to a repeating pattern.

We love the prints and patterns of the traditional Christmas Holidays! This tablecloth features a pattern of Christmas Carolers singing their merry tunes! This pattern was also used on kitchen dish towels and has been featured in many vintage Christmas decor magazines.

I really enjoy reading. I decided to make a few bookmarks for other book lovers out there! I especially love the Japanese patterned paper and so made these bookmarks with this pretty paper. When making these, I thought they would make a lovely gift.
