Excuse the punny title, but they ARE pretty. It was the work of Minneapolis-based graphic designer, Laurie DeMartino, that first introduced (to me at least) the idea of using elements of vintage sewing patterns in design. I thought of her design style (which I LOVE) immediately when I found these over the weekend at a truck stop that also had an antiques store (for real). My husband and I were driving back from a friend’s wedding and making good time when we got way-laid by the cool treasures. Two hours and some change later we finally cut ourselves off. But not before I scored a few sweet finds!
