‘Creative’ Quotes

In my ‘cleaning out’ lately, I uncovered my ‘Rag’ newsletters from the late and wonderful Lois Ericson.  I have no idea if the quotes without authors cited are her original quotes or not, but I at least wanted to make that possibility obvious.  My plans are to write these all over one of my new ‘Up-Cycle Memento Tops’ …. but for that to happen, I’ll have to move my ‘work’ from my computer to the sewing machine, and since I’m still hard at work on the new Memento pattern – I don’t foresee that in the near future.  At any rate, I’m sharing them with you here…for your inspiration or use in your own sewing.  I have (and sell) this Pigma Pen set of permanent markers in a variety of sizes that I plan to use when I do this.  My plan is to combine them with some trim from an old Homecoming Dress I retrieved from the dress-up box!

Permanent Markers in black in variety of sizes for creative writing on fabric.
