Sewing To Save Money

Yes, I am already sewing for spring and summer! I have cabin fever and tons of fabric. I am starting with some tshirts for my Little Man. I have enough fabric to make him , maybe, 10 in different patterns. He is going to need all new shorts also. He has gotten so tall. With what I spent on " fabric " and the patterns, I would have him all new clothes for spring and most of summer for about $10.00! That is a great savings!

I get all of my fabric from thrift stores. Repurpose sheets etc. I love those " tshirt" fabric sheets! I can make so much out of those. $1.50 a sheet! Vintage sheets with the cool prints make great skirts.

I get most of my patterns from thrift stores. You can find some great ones. Usually about 50 cents a piece or box lots for a couple of dollars.

I taught myself how to sew on a singer sewing machine that I got at a flea market for $25.00. I still am using it. Ten years later.

Sewing can be a real way to save money.
