Affordable crafting and sewing supplies?

We may earn money or products from the companies mentioned in this post.


I have set myself a challenge, to visit one of the many economy stores that are popping up and to see what supplies I could find.

I think you may be surprised…

Fabric duvet sets

Fabric, table runners, t-towels, and of course bed linen. This single duvet cover for £6.99 which is the equivalent of 4 metres of fabric, for the same price I would gain one metre of the equivalent economy fabric in a fabric shop.

Foam tape

Tape, I was looking for parcel tape and double sided tape – have you seen this great tutorial for fabric washi tape, made with double sided tape and fabric scraps?  What I found was foam double sided tape – great for mounting:) Plus Pritt stick glue and wallpaper samples, perfect for card making.


Wool – you can never be short of wool:)


Affordable storage for your crafting supplies.

I didn’t find everything I expected to. I guess that is part of economy store shopping.. you never know what they have in stock!

    Some good finds, there, thanks for sharing them.
    Could I ask what store that was? If you’re able to tell us.
    I’m fairly sure I know, but I could be wrong, lol.

    I love a good bargain. I went to Aldi last night and got a Spiderman bedding set for £4.99. I was well impressed. It is lovely too 🙂

    Really want some of those drawers at the bottom.

      Car boots are great aren’t they:) My kids are not quite so tolerant re rummaging at car boots sadly, last time we went to one I picked up some pillowcases for 25p each:)

    That looks like a Home Bargains to me! We have one near us and it’s great. I have found loads of bargains in there. Apparently the reason that they can sell their stock so cheap is because they don’t pay for advertising. Works for me 🙂 Thanks for sharing on #ThriftyThursday

    I recently made a long cushion with 4 pillows that I picked up there for less than £5 each! The bedding is a great buy, like you say you can’t buy fabric by the yard at that price.

    I always take a look at the discount store, you never know when you are going to find some treasure.
