I had some good luck at the thrift shops over the weekend. I love old tin canisters and use them to hold a variety of my crafting supplies so I was really happy to find this pair in great condition and sporting one of my favorite shades of green. I did good on fabric too; the one on top is an old decorator fabric sample so there's the one big piece and then a couple of squares in different colors. The one in the middle is a red, brown, and yellow print of apples, pears, grapes, cherries, and strawberries - very cute, and the bottom one is all strawberries. Hmm, I'm just realizing that my finds have a bit of a fruity theme to them.
This piece of yardage (3 yards) is a large screenprint on fairly heavy weight fabric. Of course I was first attracted to the pink/brown combination but I like the large size of the pattern too. I also got a handful of zippers - if you ever need zippers be sure to check the thrift shops first! I usually pay 25 cents for them and they are still in their original packaging. I wish I could find some great buttons but maybe that will be the next time out.
