so, i am an op-shopper (thrift-shopper) from way back. but recently i have developed a new op-shop obsession.
its kinda weird, but also makes much sense. see it all started with the vintage pillow case veggie bags i made a little while ago. i am in love with them. i use them all the time and am finding that 4 is not enough. so a few weeks ago i popped down to the op shop to grab another pillow case to make some more (using pillowcases is brilliant, as some of the seams are already done, and being second hand or vintage - they are often well worn and therefore very light weight). i came home with a couple and put them on a pile of my things to do.
then today, i popped into an op-shop during lunch (it was right next to the post office) and came out with another 3 (oh, and a brown and orange linen tablecloth).
the fabric in the pillowcases is really lovely. i enjoy the patterns and the different styles. today i came up with a great plan too. a new pillowcase project i'm pretty excited about it, i really think it will work - now its just finding the time to make all these pillow case projects up!
