This IS Your Granny’s Crafting! Crafty Finds

by Betty Crafter


Aren’t grandmas the best? Mine saves crewel kits that get donated to her church for me. Here are some she just sent me.


I was most excited about these loose bits but wouldn’t you know, there was no stamped fabric to be found for either of these designs! What a bummer.


This was the best of the bunch. Still deciding if I’m going to make it or sell it. It sure is cute!


I’m just as excited about the vintage Six Flags bag she packed them in as I am about the crewel kits! How great are the graphics on this thing? Yes, I am a huge vintage geek.

I also scored some amazing vintage button cards this week that I’m pretty stoked over.


Adorable little flowers in all kinds of colors!


Seriously awesome anchors!!


Goldfish and pineapples and cherries!


SQUIRRELS!!! Squee!!

I seriously love me some vintage button cards. Must have the cards, you know, because then I can try to convince myself that I’ll actually use them on a project someday. Yeah right. All that’s going to end up happening is that I’ll be the worlds’ foremost collector of squirrel buttons still on the cards.

    I know, how could you ever bear to remove those buttons from the cards?!
