For the love of things cheap, country, crafty and creative

This week I was pleasantly surprised to realize that in the back corner of the local thrift store a huge selection of patterns was hiding from me. Lots of things from vintage to new patterns that I happen to know are still on the shelf at the local fabric store! Many of them were uncut particularly if you were talking children's clothing. Probably many well intentioned seamstresses out there whose kids grew up too fast! Then much to my delight a dear friend shared some patterns with me as well. Her daughter had grown up and rather than toss them, she shared them! In all, I picked up about 20 patterns this week for the grand sum of $5.00!
I also scored some vintage knit fabrics. I think they will make super fun tops. Precisely the type of odd thing my friends would expect to see me in! I couldn't be happier!
