Today I went to 2 op shops looking for fabric suitable for my patchwork project.
Here is what I found.
2 identical U-shaped pillowcases
And a ruffled single bed valance.
These will all be washed and unpicked ready to use. The valance is big enough to use for the entire backing of the quilt.
Although these items were not super cheap it will still be quite a frugal project. I will mix and match them with existing pieces from my collection.
Thanks to Froogs at Frugal Queen for the inspiration.
Recycling, helping a good cause and being able to live on a lot less 🙂 Op shops are wonderful. I spent part of today cutting up squares for a quilt from pre-loved items 🙂
Op shops are great – so many benefits to your wallet the environment and the charities who run them.
I like that dress : -)
I think 2 of you would fit into it. If it were the right size I would send it to you.
I like the single bed sheet. It would be great for applique work too. Have fun.
Look carefully when you see the finished product – there may be some applique tucked into it.
