As always, my mission was to find fabrics and I knew I'd also be keeping an eye out for any great toys/books for my 2.5 year old. Julie was hoping to find buttons and some plain fabrics she could embroider.
So you wanna see what I got??
The first shop we went in had some gorgeous vintage bits and pieces, I got these 2 pieces of pretty fabric -
I also got these -
I also got a massive piece of royal blue fabric from here which you can see in a pic further down.
We then ventured further into town and managed to find a few more bits and pieces. We found a LOT of these -
You will be VERY surprised to hear that I didn't buy a single button! Honestly! I remembered all my button jars...full to the brim..., I was very good :)
A few more shops later and I had accumulated a fantastic collection of solids -
The solids in this pile are all brand new pieces of fabrics, the blue will be so handy for backing/lining 'boy' projects, and the neutrals are fabrics I go through so much of. The largest piece of cream fabric here is easily 2.5m long.
I worked out that the total of ALL the fabrics I bought came to.....£3.00!! I'd say that was a very successful day's charity shopping!
Of course, Joshua was not forgotten, I found this little pile of goodies for him -
Julie and I have agreed that since our charity shopping day was so successful we should definitely make it a regular event in our calenders! Here's to next time ;)
PS - you can head over to Julie's blog to see what fab charity shop finds she bought too!
