Saturday Shopping Finds

Saturday's are my favorite day to spend scrounging around thrift stores for things that seem useless and invaluable, but just need some TLC! The quote "One man's trash is another man's treasure" is definitely true! I can't wait to share what I found today!

I found two of these napkins that are 19" square

4 of these place mats that are 18" x 12"

And two 50" cuts of this cute Waverly material!

I have some ideas in my head of what I could make out of these, but feel free to share any ideas you may have! Sharing creativity is what blogging is all about!
I will post the finished product that used each of these items of material as soon as I have them finished!

Minnie Mouse Pillowcase Dress

My sweet little niece turned 3 years old this month! Since she is enamored with Minnie Mouse, I wanted to make something special for her birthday party!

This was my first try making a pillowcase dress.. well, actually at making children's clothes in general! I was thrilled with how it turned out!! As cute as it is, nothing compared with seeing the look on her face when I gave it to her!

If anyone would be interested in a tutorial of this dress pattern, leave a comment and I will make one!
