MrA is addicted to charity-shop shopping. Me, not so much. Things have changed since I started sewing though. Instead of hanging around outside impatiently waiting I’ve started looking for fabrics.
I’ve had a few good fabric finds in oxfam stores recently. I thought I’d share a few makes and plans.
I love this fabric, it’s not really what I wear, the colour or the pattern, but I love the gold in the design and I always take it on holiday. It’s got a nice soft linen collar.
This pink one was a tablecloth I think. £3.50 for the equivalent of about 3m. I made the shirt to wear on holiday in Thailand, long sleeves for the temples. And I love the summery colours.
It’s not my best collar, but I get a lot of wear out of this shirt.
This was a great find from an Oxfam in Cornwall. It’s the exact same M&S duvet cover that MrA and his brother had in the 70’s/80’s. His brothers was this blue version. MrA had the green one. The polyester content makes it a bit springy but it’s surprising comfortable on a hot day!
It feels good to make the donation. It feels good to get more fabric. (It feels good to not be waiting outside in the inevitable cold/rain.) Win-win (win!). Have you had any good charity shop fabric finds?
