I wish I had taken my camera to the thrift stores on Saturday. I could have shown you the dangers of not thrifting for a few weeks and how you, well maybe just I, feel the need to fill the basket to the top to make up for it!
So I'm guessing someone cleaned out their sewing room and sent it all the the thrift and I made out like a bandit! I bought a huge stack of fabric and a bag of nice ribbon and trims.
Most of the pieces you see here were 99 cents and nothing I bought was under 2 yards. I'm trying to come up with a project for those two big pieces of corduroy (black and red.) They are very soft and I have about 4 yards of each.
Sorry the pictures are dark, we had tons of rain over the weekend. Three nice cotton prints, two cowboy motifs and one rocket ship. Not sure what I'll do with them but I couldn't leave them behind. :)
There are about 4 yards of this heavy upholstery fabric. It blends in with my decor very well. I'm planning to cover a small foot stool I have and perhaps make some seat cushions for my dining room chairs. I'm nervous to sew it on the machine as it's so thick but we'll see.
These are my two favorites. The cherry pattern is cotton and the blue is linen, I think, and there is a lot of it. Too bad I can't make clothes, it would be cute as a skirt. Once everything was washed inspiration hit and I turned the cherries into these:
Such terrible lighting, I know. But the curtains came out nice and I had enough for this window on the kitchen door and one panel for the small window over the sink.
So my sewing is progressing! I also cut some squares for that quilt and worked on another project I'll share soon.
Oh and I emailed Jenn earlier to say I thought of her this weekend while sewing. It was mostly because while I was working I had Star Wars on the TV and I knew only she would appreciate the combo of crafting and Han Solo. ;) LOL
