My ETSY Holiday Gift Guide
For Vintage Makers
Some of my favorite places to shop are on ETSY, the global online marketplace for everything Vintage, Craft or Craft Supply. And lately, I’ve been coming across some really wonderful vendors as well as my trusted favorites. Below is my GIFT GUIDE for Vintage Makers and the enthusiasts in their life. (Feel free to share with your significant other as you might find this list good for yourself as well)

For the Seamstress - Gifts to Make
Make a Bra & Panty Set
Bra Making Supplies - Proprietress, Beverley Johnson is the creator of Pin-up Girls Bra Patterns and the maker of the bra pattern pattern we used in our Bra Making Class with Linda Sepeda. She offers a wide range of supplies in her Etsy shop. I find this deep burgundy color to be very festive in her listing for Bra-Making kits. The Sapphire Partial Band Bra & Panty Basics Pattern would be my choices for the perfect set.
Vintage Pattern Lending Library - Deirdre carries high quality vintage reproduction paper patterns. They are gorgeous, easy to work with and delivered fast. Pick your era and decide from there. I just bought this 1934 Hat, Gloves and Scarf pattern and am excited to get to making some accessories for friends.
For the Vintage Knitter
Fabel Vintage - If I have time before Christmas, I’ll definitely be knitting this scarf as a gift to give to one of my vintage appreciative friends. Maybe one for myself too…
Not only does this seller have extraordinary knitting patterns, she’s got AMAZING vintage pieces for sale. But this post is really about her knitting patterns. She has a great Instagram presence and quite a few people I follow have used her patterns with great success, so they come highly recommended.
For the Vintage Pet Enthusiast
Chicken Rittle - These are the sweetest vintage inspired Pet Portraits ever! Proprietress, Janet Hulme, has an array of lovely portrait prints, similar to this one to choose from and she does custom work as well. I found out about her in the Vintage Updos for Modern Girls Facebook group. Truly spectacular work for the cat or dog lady in YOUR life. This one is called Holly Christmas Special.
And when in doubt, an Etsy Gift Card is a great way to go.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this post. I sure enjoyed putting it all together. Hoping you have a wonderful Holiday!
Until Next Time, Happy Crafting!
