Fabric Love - Thrift Store Fabric!!!

I'm loving my latest fabric finds...in fact, I've gotten such great deals on fabric lately that this is the first of 3 posts showing my latest fabric loves. So, these first ones are thrift store finds! Yep. This adorable butterflies and flowers fabric that is oh-so-me, was a treasure I stumbled upon at a thrift store last weekend. They are a set of sheets (twin, I think) and I got each sheet for $3.00!!! I have great plans to make more lounge pants out of these! Although, I still need to figure out how to adjust the waist :( or I could learn how to insert an elastic waistband which may prove to be more simple...Below is another shot of this absolutely cute fabric...

Here is another great thrift store find...This was a shower curtain but it will soon be sewn into an ironing board cover. This bold floral print in the bright, cheerful colors is also oh-so-me! I have a soft spot in my heart for anything turquoise! I picked it up for $5.00 (with the shower rings, too!) and it is a very large piece of fabric. They'll be plenty left over for other projects.

Stay tuned for another Fabric Love post tomorrow!
