ok, i'm going to let you in on a little secret. now if i disclose this information you must, and i repeat must, promise to keep it to yourself. i have grave fears that if too many people find out about my addiction my supplies will dwindle.
here goes. tucked away in the leafy suburb of greensborough is a mammoth op shop called savers. there. i said it. savers has to be my favourite shop hands down. i have stumbled upon a delightful array of vintage clothing that have naturally become some of my favourite wardrobe peices. last night was no exception. i had a real corker!
let's start with material. as i will be getting my little sewing machine back tomorrow i really couldnt help myself. some of these will be used for pillow cases for our beach house and some i will attempt to make clothes from.
i love the softness of these colours. i thought the patterned one was a particulary good find.
hoping to make a nice beachy pillow case out of the stripey one and a winter skirt out of the brown. of course, 'hoping' is the operative word in that sentence!
check out these bags of fun. one was full of zips for $2.99 and one was full of thread for $3.99 - man, was i a happy camper!
and finally some patterns. all for 69c each. i grabbed a few dress patterns and some tops. i'm hoping i can now live up to my own expectations and create something worth blogging about. for some really lovely finished products that are good to buy now, visit onegirl - she makes super, super nice stuff in her craft room in kingsville. and she's way nice.
