First and foremost, picture frames!
I have been gathering frames at yard sales and thrift stores or wherever I can find them for less than $2 each. These frames ranged in price from $.59 to $1.79 I think. (Here I must confess that I left my wallet in my other coat and my dad ended up buying them for me.)
I also managed to score several yards of a few different fabrics at an all-you-can-fit-in-a-bag fabric sale.
For $2.99 I got:
|Slinky and smooth floral on a nice steel blue. I really enjoy this one in both look and feel.|
|A winning combination of bright hopeful yellow and pink swirly paisley. I am a big paisley fan. Because of this fabric I learned that my dad is not a paisley fan.|
|I hope there is enough of this navy fabric with plants and dragon flies to make a full dress, but it might be tad to short.|
|The smallest piece, yest still a fair piece, slinky fabric that is really much more brown than this photo lets on.|
Now my dad is off visiting other parts of the state and I have sewing to do and a few more pictures to hang!
