A Vintage Find

It has been yard sale season here in Ohio. Everywhere you go, someone is having a sale. I don't usually stop, but I decided to take my daughter to a few and look around. She found some great vintage clip-on earrings and pins today. I came home with a really pretty piece of retro canvas fabric and a huge cone of some sort of heavy-weight wool yarn. I hesitated buying the yarn, but decided it would make a great rug. Yes, it's that thick....and scratchy too.

So, I spent the day washing the fabric and cutting out a nice size library tote from it. Here's the final picture. I love the colors of orange, rust, brown, and green.
