Thriftacular Thursday!

I have big plans for these crafty gems that I picked up recently.

* I'm pumped about the bandanna patchwork fabric... I'm thinking embroidered cowgirl pillows.

* Super excited about finding the cotton batting, I've been wanting to make a quilt lately.  Crib size is perfect, I won't get too overwhelmed with a huge project.  I have enough of those going on.

*  As for the zippers, what can I say?  I have a problem.  I always pick them up if I see them when I'm thrifting.  Besides who can pass up those awesome colors?  Yeah, that's what I thought.

Found anything great lately?  What are your favorite things to look for when you are out and about?

Thanks for looking, I'm headed back to Stitch City aka my little corner.  
Have a fun-filled, creative day!

been grabbing up all my collected fabric bits and pieces and started making recently. Picked up an old woollen blanket and boil wash dyed it bright pink, now stitching into it - such fun!

Amelia- that does sound fun...I am too much of a wuss to try to dye anything, I think it would probably go horribly wrong, ha ha. I'm picturing stained floors, kitty paw prints and such :)

kym- thanks, i can't wait to dig into them. do you hit up a lot of estate sales? that's one thing I really miss about living on the east coast. they still have them all of the time here in CA, but it doesn't seem like anything is really old out here. i don't know why that is...
