Thrifty Thursday: new/old fabric
Check out this wash basket full of fabric I got when I was thrift shopping last week! At the Salvation Army shirts were buy one get one for a penny, so I bought several. Then at Goodwill, I picked things as well that had pink tags on the 50% off pink tags sale day.
I loved this selection of 3 lime green men's shirts to make a shirt quilt from:
And my stash is a little lacking in neutral plaids, so I threw a few of those in for a penny to stock the stash:
These flannels were irresistible, I love dogs and am beginning to be a cat lover too, I had to have these. The dog print is probably less than a yard in the material aisle and was $2 and the cat one was a long nightgown with about 1.5 yards for $2:
The thing I love about buying pre-owned flannels is you can really tell the quality of the fabric, there is a LOT of terrible quality flannel in stores these days that just isn't worth what you pay for it. But this is all pre-loved and has washed and worn well!!
After figuring out last week that I had too much Christmas fabric in my stash, I still couldn't resist these PJ pants to cut up and add to the overflowing pile:
And I threw in this pair of shirts just on a whim because when you are getting extras for a penny, anything goes :)
