i live in the o.c. too (haha...yes, like the show...) and theres a good will that i know of on pch, right around the corner from the westminster mall. also, a new little hole in the wall thrift store just opened up in my tiny city of los alamitos...it's on cerritos ave. there's some more i know, but i can't really think at the moment...try the yellow pages maybe?? i'm also on a hunt for some new thrift stores to check out.
thank you sooo much! i think i'm going to have to wait until i get back into the whole sewing loop again...i'm just re-organized my room and found my old machine so i have to practice first before i could even attempt as gorgeous of a project as this! you did an excellent job, so professional looking. many kudos.
well i got a bedazzler a couple of years ago, and maybe it's just me, but i don't like it. the backings of the rhinestones never seem to "clamp" the right way. sometimes only 2 or 3 of the prongs would clamp, and the others would either bend wrong or go the opposite way. it made me so mad when i was trying to bedazzle my backpack that finally i just shoved the things through with my fingers and closed them with some plyers!!
