Repurposing Clothing In Crafts

I watch for the local thrift stores to have half off or 75% off sales and go look for fabric suitable for covering scrapbooks, making recycled clothing, making small crafts and recovering furniture. Sometimes you can find a long leather coat for a few bucks and recover chairs or make wallets from it. I always go in with a plan and find things people normally would not buy.


If I cannot use it one way, I can always use it in quilt making thus making the price of the quilt extra low. Blankets are great for inside of quilts and normally are inexpensive. I can get 2 baby quilts out of 1 full size bed blanket.

Recycling not only aides in my frugality it allows me to make items that would normally cost me a lot of money to purchase in a retail store. So when you see a clothing or sheet sale, stock up and save in the long run.
