cheap thrills (and frills)

You know my op shop weakness? Well one of my favourites also sell big bags of sewing stash stuff!

So cheap and so big that Tilly and I had to lug it behind us to the car. 

So big that you can't really see what's inside, it's a pot luck.

  That big bag at the back is a tapestry project waiting to happen, there were bundles of zippers in all sizes, threads, yarn, laces (yards and yards of lovely cotton lace), a couple of tins of pins and buttons and hobbytex. Anyone remember hobbytex?

Oh and if you're looking for grosgrain ribbon in any colour? I'm your girl.

So much fun. 

I am so easily entertained.

Ribbon – if it’s wide enough, it’s great to fold in half and create bunting. As you have seen from Tilly’s and Henry’s, it can be done quite short (name length) but for things like, oh, I don’t know… the village fete, 25m goes a long way! We have literally hundreds of metres of it, made from all sorts of old sheets etc!

I’m very jealous Fi … there’s hours upon hours of fun in that bag. Check out this website for ideas on what to do with zips
