Next up is this old tin of buttons, for $2. I love those big huge amber ones! And as an added bonus, it brought me at least an hour of kid entertainment - my daughter had a great time sorting through it to find all the pink ones, all the flower ones, etc. Love the old tobacco tin too.
Ten packs of old ric-rac for $1, and some cute old trim for another buck. Whee!
And of course there was some random fabric. The bee fabric is really cute, but a little weightier than normal cotton. I think I might make some fabric baskets/boxes with it. It's only 36" wide - I'd love to know when fabrics migrated from that narrower width to the more standard 44-ish width of today...
And, some scraps of hawaiian print fabrics. I'm hoping to one day make a "Postcards from Hawaii" quilt like this one or this one, so I was really thrilled to find these.
This morning I went by a couple more sales, and found this lovely "quilt cover for cradle" (whatever that is) from IKEA, new in package, for 50 cents. It's like a really small (30"x39", says the package) duvet cover, or an oversize pillowcase. But you really should zoom in and check out those sweet little flower girls - they are adorable! I think it would look so awesome as fussy-cut centers of blocks, kinda like this quilt.
And, yes, more fabric. $1/yard. I'm stocking up for halloween, baby!
And some girly flannels, some bandana print (just because!), and a shirred panel that I think will become a quick-and-dirty dress for my daughter.
And last, but not least, check out this cute folksy fabric. It's sort of like a flannel, but not as thick. Maybe it's a brushed cotton? I'll have to get my buddy Robin to take a look the next time she is over. It's has a teeny tiny selvage that reads "Beaver Textile Corp", but I didn't have any success googling it...
And yes, I have been sewing too. :-) I'm hoping to have a finished project to show in the next day or two.
