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.Just this last weekend, I found a good stack of vintage patterns – including this fabulous flared pants beauty.
And 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?
that green plaid would make a super cute skirt
ooh yeah. it’s super stretchy and kind of has the feeling of something that has been shirred. maybe a swim coverup??
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.
that’s fabulous! i love finding great deals like that :)
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!
i’m in the process of making some green shorts for sam! they’re making me want some green pants too :)
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!!
I so enjoy finding fabric at the thrift shop, but beware- $3 for 8 yards of fabric is awesome but dangerous for hoarding! lol
oh. that stripe is calling my name! i loooove stripes. it could be living room pillows, or curtains, or a tote. what fabulous colors.
