I’m back and I’m crafting! Hooray!
And what better day to return than on a Thrifty Tuesday?
My first scoop was found after a quick rummage through the hodgepodge craft section of one of my favourite local charity shops. Two sparkly sequinned appliqués for a cool 50p total! (not sure if appliqué is the proper name, but it’s the best way I can describe them!)
I decided that the smaller butterfly appliqué would be perfect as an embellishment for a headband. A few strips of stretchy lace, a discount shop headband (99p for 5 bands), and a couple dabs of hot glue produced lovely, chic results!
I have plans to make a 1920′s style headband with the leaf appliqué. So very Great Gatsby!
My second thrifty treat came by way of a crumpled shopping bag I rescued from a skip (dumpster) at the top of my road.
It was a bag from Joules — a lovely shop — and the print was simply gorgeous! I had to make something with it. The bag, literally, said it all…
Ta da!! A super cute upcycled pouch! I lined it with a bit of cotton fabric to make it a tad sturdier and perfectly suited to all sorts of make-up, toiletries, and knick-knacks. I keep thinking of things to put in it — snacks, hair accessories, spare undies for a cheeky night out? Hehe.
This week’s finds were just the thing I needed to pull me out of my crafting funk and I’m so happy to be able to share them with you!
Have you found any thrifty treats lately?
