Hello, hello! So.... this week has been a doozy! My car bit the dust (there may be some hope, but not much), and just general real life stuffs seemed to have caught up with me. Which stinks because I've got about fifty backed up posts, so I'll do my best to get caught up.
This past weekend was lovely. Saturday I spent the day at a fair my sibling's 4H club put on. It was a fun and I met a very cute pony that I really wanted to ride. But the best part was finding a thrift store right across the street. It was a gold mine too! I picked up some pretty things and could have spent much more than the $22 I did spend! Hats, shoes, a ridiculous amount of denim (I'm not joking! A whole room FILLED with jeans!), and some silly country brick-a-brack. It's a good place!
I found these two cuts of fabric. The floral is a rayon and there are about 3 yards, maybe more. The red is cotton and is definitely from the 40's! There isn't much, so I'm not sure what I will do with it, but it was too cute to pass up!
Only the last two of these patterns are from the new store. The rest are ones I've collected over the last month from various places, thrift stores, and online mostly. The one on the right in the last photo is one that I have been looking for for ages! And it was all of a dollar!
These! Oh these!! I paid $10 for these, which I originally though a bit steep for a pair of stockings, but I have a hard time finding ones that are my size, and I really needed some new ones. When I got home I opened the box and there were actually five pairs inside! Needless to say I was pretty stinking happy!
These were a prize find! I've been collecting belt buckles for sewing projects and managed to find these for for a few dollars.
This I am pretty excited about! It's a sewing course from 1940! The illustrations inside are super cute, and so far the advice inside is pretty awesome. It focuses on sewing a wardrobe based on what flatters you, your life, and your budget. Pretty neat! It was also not more than a dollar and from my favourite local shop.
