There are several thrift stores in OC. Look up yp.yahoo.com and look up "thrift stores" and you'll find them. I'm in So. OC and the good ones near me are St. Vincent De Paul. The one in SJC does a 1/2 price sale first Saturday of the month (hey, I have dibs on some patterns there Wink) and the one in Laguna Hills does 1/2 price sales each Wed. and Sat.

When you find a good thrift store, find out when they do their sales. I've found that for a lot of things, they are pretty expensive and they don't count as "thrift" until they go 1/2 off.

I guess it is sorta like a backwards apron (never thought of that). I had to tweak the way the pattern worked because of that fabric. They wanted the border going vertical and I think that would have looked funny.

The pattern is New look 6274. Different a-line skirts. It was my third try at a skirt and it was really easy!

I'm moving servers the pics should be back now.

My second project posted here. An A-line skirt with an overskirt:


I did get it from a pattern. The top fabric was on sale for $1/yd!!! Sorry for the fabric cling issue on the side, there, it does fall flat.

That's neat! I'll be going for the crayons, it looks like. I'll see if I can find the ones that go right onto the fabric so there's more of a sense of "immediate gratification." Smiley

I didn't want to use puffy paints or things like that because it seems like it would be harder to use those.

Thanks...I'm sure I got the idea from someone somewhere. Smiley

Thanks! Both ideas area awesome and I'm assuming I could find both at Michael's.  Both seem to have issues (potentially) with "fumes" but I think that once washed it should be ok.

Thanks again!

Ok, I've never quilted before, but I am in charge of doing my SIL's baby shower. I thought (maybe I'm nuts) that cutting up plain fabric into squares and having the guests decorate them then turning it into a quilt.

What kind of paint do you think would work? Would it work? Bec. most fabric paint I've seen is kinda scratchy, isn't it?

You know what, Krafty? I never thought of that, but you're right. Cheesy

My first post and my first tote bag project:

The outside with freeform stitching for added fun/detail.

Inside to show lining and pocket.

I used a pattern for this that was based on a French market bag (something like that) so the bag is huge. You can fit a ton of fruits and veggies in this one!
