This weekend on our way home from Ikea, we stopped at a thrift store. Thrift stores are my favorite type of stores. Because I never know what I might find or what I need until I see it! My favorite items are Sheets (any size, color, style), Patterns (the older the better), Sewing supplies, some clothes and fabric. This trip I came away with only 4 patterns since they were $.50 each. I like to find them cheaper..... But vintage patterns are a weakness of mine along with sheets...... My husband thinks I am a borderline hoarder! But I don't think you can have enough of them.
I found a McCall's 7806 & 3588, Simplicity 5914 & 7896 Pattern
I hope to be able to work on new window treatments for our living room tonight. I ordered the fabric from Fabric Mart a few weeks ago and I can not wait to get going on this project. Our window are an odd shape so I just make a long sway scarf type treatment on them.
I takes about 9yds of fabric to reach from floor to ceiling to floor. When I ordered the fabric from Fabric Mart the first time I only ordered 2yds, then I reordered 5 more. They were kind enough to call me to let me know they only had 3-3/4 yds left. I think if I cut the fabric in half lengthwise then serge together I should have a piece that is 23"wide x 11.5yds. I may have enough left over to make some matching pillow covers too!
