As regular readers know I LOVE sewing, finding the process relaxing, challenging, absorbing, plus it nurtures my creativity. But it is not always that cheap. Today I am taking part in Sew thrifty’s series Savings Made By Sewing. I am sharing tips about sourcing fabrics from charity shops, car boot sales and jumble sales.
Other options include signing up to community reuse groups such as freecycle and freegle.
A size 14 skirt gave me 74″ by 23″ of fabric for £3. For more thoughts and tips see my post here. Do chek out Dana’s blog, she has a fabulous round up of free childrens clothes patterns.
What are your top tips for second-hand fabric shopping?
