Thrifty Sewing Bits

I have been looking for some sewing bits and bobs and trims to work on some clothes for the girls this spring/summer and I hit the jackpot at the thrift store. Here are several yards of very girly knit trim. A stash of red buttons, 27 yards of red crochet trim, and some really pretty red floral fabric. Several more yards of an ivory crochet trim, and several sets of buttons to cover with fabric. I paid 50 cents for the fabric (almost two yards) and 50 cents for the 27 yards of red crochet trim. Each button set was 12 cents and everything else was 25 cents a piece, so all in all I came out with some fantastic deals. I do believe I am ready to make some cute things for the girls as the weather gets warmer, and don’t you love it when all of your purchases happen to be in the same colour palette unintentionally? I know, kind of weird, but I do.

    The fabric is really cute. I love the buttons, want to find some similar over here! Although I know for definite I’ll have to pay more that 12cents for them!
