Garage sales and thrift stores are fabulous places to find fabrics for sewing and crafting! If you’re like me and you love vintage, you will definitely enjoy finding patterned or perfectly faded fabrics. Here are some of my favorite fabric finds:
- Fabric Bunting — I found all of the fabric for this project at a local thrift store!
- How To: Make a Dog Bed — Becky used a reclaimed comforter and sheet to make an adorable dog bed!
- How To: Sew a Circle Skirt from a Vintage Bed Sheet — Amanda from Ninth Street Notions found a thrifted vintage sheet and sewed it into a beautiful circle skirt.
I’m not very talented in the sewing department, but fabric is always a great medium to craft with! A few weeks ago I found a vintage yellow/gold fabric and I cannot wait to do something with it!
Now that you’re “informed,” are you inspired? What items would you look for at second hand places?
