On Finding the Good Stuff

It's a disorder. I must thrift shop. I would stop, but I keep finding cool stuff. And really, I think that the thrift shop smell is not nearly as bad as the smells on the bus, which I have been riding A LOT. Because I loaned my car to my mother. And apparently she doesn't want to give it back.

So here's this week's haul...

Smocking and a kerchief? Lovely.


Fitted or babydoll? Cute!


I think I already have a copy of the coat pattern. Check out the puffy sleeve ends on the dress, very cool.


Oh, the Cobbler Apron. What's not to love, apron + many pockets, yay! And see that wild fabric? It must be a good 2 yards or more.


And who doesn't love Rowan yarn? 10 skeins of Cotton Tape, 2 of Plaid, and one plus a little bit more of Tuft.



Not a bad haul for about $12.

I think the Plaid would make a nice hat, something like An Unoriginal Hat or Cool from the Rowan Plaid Collection book. And I can make something for the kids with the Tape, but what to do with a skein of Tuft? Hmm...

I had the cobbler apron pattern a few years back and used it to make outfits for my girl. I love these old patterns.
