cheap, fun fabric source

Fabric from chain stores often costs more than I’d like to spend, not to mention that the nearest fabric store is at least 15 minutes from my house, without traffic… and I don’t much like to drive very far. Just half a mile from my office, however, is a Salvation Army. Sometimes I’ll stop in at lunch, and one day I happened upon the sheet section – dozens and dozens of sheets! I’ve been adding to my collection every since – for $2.99 per sheet, that’s around $1-$1.50 per yard. Plus, there are some really funky patterns to be found!

Check out some of my most recent finds on the right. The top fabric is already destined to be a hedgehog, not sure about the rest yet (any ideas?)

Anybody else have an unusual craft supply source?

    I never throw gift packaging ribbons away–especially from high-end stores–the ribbons are quite nice!

    I've also enjoyed making a few of my clothes over for Annabel. Maybe I'll post on that soon.

    Can't wait to see the new hedgehog in that floral fabric! 🙂

    Yeah, I save ribbons too – the ribbon on Harriet the hedgehog is from a Williams & Sonoma gift!
