Thrift Store Treasures

A girl friend and I went thrifting the other day. We hit all the Goodwills and Salvation Armys we could find. I found an adorable dress...but sadly it is way too small for me. I did, however, fall madly in love with the fabric. So, I paid $6 for the dress which I should be able to retrieve about 1 1/2 of fabric. You will be seeing this fabric re-purposed very soon. I have found a green and black fabric to go with it, but I am looking for the perfect pink. My mind is spinning with ideas for this fabric.

This little Japanese tshirt is brand new and still has the Japanese tag on it. Well, I think it is Japanese...could be Chinese. Anyway, these little Geisha girls have been all over sewing blogs. I am planning to make a pillow out of it to sell in my still empty Etsy store. :( Oh I have made plenty of stuff to sell on Etsy, I just haven't taken the time to list it yet.

As I write this I am dealing with allergies. I love spring but it doesn't love me. Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Sewing!!

    Can't wait to see your pillow! I Absolutely love thrifting too.

  3. Be still my heart - that fabric in the dress is too gorgeous! I love the tshirt too!
