In the market town where I live there are a liberal sprinkling of charity shops. A couple of them are rubbish, but there are 3 that stand out and I picked up some great bargins this weekend. Before that I found these gorgeous felt offcuts on Ebay (they are huge!!) for under a fiver :)
I have been looking for 100% linen, if you know your material you will also know that linen is mighty expensive, wherever you buy it. So I thought I would take a look around one the charity shops and I came across not one but two 100% heavy linen skirts, so in the basket they went, then I found a sweet pair of toddlers jeans, almost brand new, with some adorable "embellishments", and of course the actual denim can be reused. I measured the skirts, after cutting them in half I found the total material was equivalent to 7 fat quarters!! So all this linen plus the jeans were a bargin at under a tenner!!
So feeling rather pleased with myself I then saw what had to be the bargin of the week. A double, brand new, padded, reversible bed quilt. £6. There wasn't even a stitch out of place.
Maybe I should have run the iron over it after it came out of the wash!!
Have a great weekend xx
