We found a subdivision sale this past weekend. With the high gas prices we love these types of sales because we can go to a lot of sales in one area and not waste a lot of gas.
One of the sales in this subdivision was to benefit their animal rescue. You know when you go to the sale to benefit a charity of some sort you feel the need to buy something. I felt that in my soul but my mind wasn't finding a thing I needed. Just when I was ready to drop a dollar or two in their donation canister and walk off feeling little better about myself, I found a Detroit tigers window tier for a dollar. Grandson though didn't need curtains so I decided I could make a pillowcase for his bedroom.
Using a pillowcase I had, I measured and the amount of material I had to work with was perfect. I just folded the material in half and then sewed up two seams, he had a new pillow case. He loved it!
At another house I found a skirt in the free pile that was ripped on the seam. I thought it would make a great skirt for the granddaughter and it was free so it was worth the try. It was very big for her so I try to take up the seam more but it was just too much for my skills to make it over. Maybe a more skilled seamstress could do it but I had trouble.
So with a little hemming this morning I've decided it will now be a doll skirt. LOL. I also have enough material left over to try to make a top to match.
It was fun for a little money to make over these finds.
