Fabulous Fabric

As the title has already mentioned, i have found some fabulous fabric!!!!




Do you like???


We are very lucky here in cambridgeshire as we have quite a few charity shops, 1 is called open door and they have one based in newmarket and one based in mildenhall. I must say we are spoilt rotten as i have found quite a few treasures there. I do love the feeling of giving new life to something old, poor rejected things that no one needs  or wants.


Here is another unwanted piece of clothing, a scarf to be exact, now turned into a lovely woollen bag, fully lined and which sits just nice under your arm.



If you would to see more of my makes then please do come and see me on my facebook page 'bearsfootprint'. I have already had the lovely Lizzie from The Pea Pod pop over.

ohh i have a craft fayre which i will be attending next weekend so im busy as a bee making more things. I dont know about you but i always think that i dont have enough stock, so the last week running up to something like this i tend to panic, im sure i will have plenty but hey x
I do hope you have all had a good weekend x x  see you all soon x  x

  2. Lovely fabric. Your lucky with your charity shops,
    the ones by me are more expensive than the local shops!
    The clothes they sell for example from shops like Tesco and Primark they mark at prices greater than they would have cost in the first place!
    OK rant over!
    Good luck with the craft fair x

  4. Ooh you are a lady after my own heart. I just love charity shops. I have made a pledge to Veronica's Attic (on facebook) that I won't purchase any new clothes for a year. I've managed to keep to it for three weeks, even went shopping with my daughter to Liverpool on Saturday and just purchased a new Cath Kidston notebook. Have a great day, I love your blog BTW.

    Thanks Jane
