Thrifting Love!

There’s a local thrift stop that I frequent and just adore. There’s an entire section of the store devoted to sewing supplies. Um, hello! Love.DSC_0367Just this last weekend, I found a good stack of vintage patterns – including this fabulous flared pants beauty.
DSC_0366And this stack of fabric – fabric! Not just a bunch of things to upcycle [which of course makes me so ridiculously happy], but yards of fabric. I think that top home dec weight fabric needs to be living room pillows.

What would you make with these lovelies?

    1. ooh yeah. it’s super stretchy and kind of has the feeling of something that has been shirred. maybe a swim coverup??

  1. Awesome! Congratulations on your fabric score! I recently went to our local Saver’s thrift store and found some Moda purple marble fabric for about $1 a yard (close to 5 yards of it). I frequently shop that store for fabric and I usually walk away with several yards of each one that I choose. I normally pay $2 to $4 for each piece (well over a yard of each). They also have patterns, some vintage, some not for 50 cents or less for each.

  2. Make a button down shirt for yourself out of the black and white check! And wear it with green jeans. I saw it on pinterest and its all I can think about!

  3. Fabulous! I was just at my local thrift shop and got a whole PILE of sewing patterns. I could not believe the gems I found in there! I’m loving the bell bottoms on these pants. Go big!!

  4. I so enjoy finding fabric at the thrift shop, but beware- $3 for 8 yards of fabric is awesome but dangerous for hoarding! lol


  5. oh. that stripe is calling my name! i loooove stripes. it could be living room pillows, or curtains, or a tote. what fabulous colors.
