Spring is in the air (and 3,000 pollen count)! This means a plethora of flea markets, thrift stores and garage sales every weekend in and around the big city! With this in mind, and the fact that I have Fridays off from my "real" job, I have decided to check out one or two of these shopping destinations each Friday to see what great stuff I can find to use in my sewing lair. If you think about it, you can potentially find super cheap purses that you can deconstruct and then use the hardware. Another great find are linens. Lots of people donate old curtains, sheets, pillow cases, etc. Why not use them for a "new" purse, pillow cover, or jammie pants? Come to think of it, why not use some funky fabric from vintage tea towels, curtains or even shirts for quilt patches? Check out three pieces I found today. I bought a skirt, a LINEN dress, and a skort for less that $10.00! Cool huh? What should I make?
