You know those posts that people do where they show their local thrift store finds? I am always so jealous of them because I never seem to be able to find anything even remotely similar when I go.

Its kind of like an elusive pink elephant. You want to believe in it, but it just isn’t real.

Well, this past weekend – I found my elephant!

I totally SCORED! I couldn’t believe my eyeballs, and once I pinched myself and realized that what I was looking at was actually real – I started grabbing and throwing every kids patterns I could find in my cart as fast as possible.

But it got better…

Did you see that? Let me give you a closer look…

That’s right. Gingham freaking ric rac! How cool is that?!

So the moral of this post? Pink elephants are real my friends. Very real. 




Thinking of sharing some of this booty in a correlating post connected to the one I have coming up for the Vintage May Series in a couple of weeks at Craftiness is Not Optional – would anyone be interested in a vintage pattern giveaway with this find?

Thanks so much for stopping by, and until next time…




Happy Sewing!
