I actually uploaded some pictures today so I can show you the final result of that fabric covered cork board!
Yay! Finished! I actually got that done and under the Christmas tree in time. So this is a little delayed :D On a mostly unrelated note I have some pictures of a recent thrift haul I'm so exited about! I took pictures of everything except the fabric and clothes I've gotten the past month since this "Haul" is mostly accumulative of the last month.
|6 matching very nicely made wood picture frames .75 each. I'm thinking I will put pictures of the kids in there and make a photo wall, thinking about painting them turquoise, aqua or orange. Thoughts?|
|pre quilted peach colored quilt backing for a quilt I'm making my best friend's unborn daughter. It will be full sized not baby sized and in colors I hope she can grow with and still use without it being cutesy...|
|Scraps for the front of the quilt and cream colored bias tape for edges, not quite sure of a pattern yet.|
|the accent fabrics for the front of the quilt-all vintage. I love the girlishness of the floral and the clean lines of the grey and grownup pink.|
|This gorgeous floral is the main fabric the center of the quilt front...I am so in love with this fabric I wish I had more to make something for myself too!|
|Singer's How to make bedspreads, duvets, coverlets, shams and curtains for vanity tables.|
|Iron on transfers for painting or embroidery.|
|Vegetables-I can see these on kitchen towels already!|
|Coffee :) I am a coffee fiend! I thought about doing these on my pillows.|
|Birds, different birds for every day of the week, I think these will be nice on pillows and on quilts maybe?|
|A collection! Kitten, puppy, love, mushrooms, roosters, and a trio of adorable owls!|
|McCall's 4542, going to make this outfit for my youngest asap-so cute! Butterick 4246, little sailor outfits maybe his next Halloween costume? And Simplicity 6228 for when he gets a little bigger-He'll look just like John Boy Walton!|
|New Look E6015 and Simplicity E2124 which I will do asap for the youngest.|
|Patterns for me for a summer wardrobe hopefully! Simplicity E2418, Simplicity E2051, Simplicity E2410, Simplicity E2884, and Simplicity E2412.|
|And my last pattern buy for myself, a shirt pattern, New Look E6034 and some super soft blue and white ribbed knit I got for 2.00 a yard that will hopefully work well for it.|
And that is last month's thrift haul. Excluding fabric (which I am now realizing looking at patterns I don't have enough/enough yardage of) and some clothes to be refashioned.
