I was excited to find this container of trims, bias tape, piping, rick rack and blanket binding for $2.00 at a garage sale. If I had purchased them at a store only a couple of them would have been $2.00. My girls always ask "what are you going to do with that" every time I find something neat. If I do not need the item at that exact moment they just don't understand why I would want it. I am always on the look out for crafting items at garage sales or thrift stores. I know that I will put it on the shelf and use it for a future project of some kind. My goal is to always buy cheap and have things on hand for those times a project pops into my head. Kind of like hanging on to old sheets that don't match anything I own...my friend Pat started making rag rugs and I was able to fix her up with those old sheets.
This is my box of goodies!
This is a rag rug my friend Pat made from old sheets.
This is an example of how I used some trim I found at a bargarin.
I added the trim to some jean purses I made for my granddaughter.
What are your ideas for inexpensive crafting supplies?
