Thrifty fabric find

A couple of weeks ago I was at my local Value Village and found metres and metres of fabric.  White, cotton twill, heavy fabric. Total score. Each bolt is at least 30 metres!


And the price?  $9.99 each bolt!DSC07425

Yeppers, I’ll have white fabric For-Everrrr!

I also ordered a batch of premium scraps from Tonic Living. There are several pretty pieces of fabric, but there are also some duds. I knew when I bought them that I was taking a risk on not getting anything I wanted. Overall I’m happy with what I got, especially this remnant of their Bodega, Navy


Just enough to make two envelope back cushions.  I think I am in love :)


I needed some pattern in this space and these fit the bill. 


Today I am guest blogging over at White Lacquer. Patience has an eye for beautiful things. She is running a series about “things I want/can’t live without” and I contributed 5 things that I can’t live without. Pay her a visit, you will be glad you did.
