Welcome back to another week of garage sale finds Friday, where I share with you some of my favorite finds from garage sales. Do you ever go to garage sales and sense a theme of the day?
This actually happens to me quite often. I'll go to one garage sale and think "I've never seen that before", then the next five garage sales I go to all I see is that particular thing.
In sticking with this "theme" I thought I would share with you my sewing/crafting garage sale finds.
Sewing and crafting are expensive hobbies.
If you can keep your eyes peeled for the right items, you can save yourself a ton of money.
*Remember several months ago when I found some twine? I immediately thought I would make bakers twine. I finally did. Don't worry, the tutorial is coming soon. It's easier than you would think!
*Scrabble tiles are great things to craft with. I got this bag full for $2
*I have found fabric by the yard at more than one garage sale. This week, I found 2 bolts of tulle in the color I needed for $1. Score!
*Gingher scissors are a dream. Vintage Gingher scissors in great shape...a dream come true! I paid $7 for the pair of regular scissors and pinking shears.
*Pins, pins and more pins. I can always use more, especially when I participate in Paula's Pillowcase Project.
*Bags of buttons always catch my eye. I picked up this bag for $1
*You can never have enough bobbins. I got these metal bobbins in the container for $1 (despite their $2 price tag!)
