Spring Break: Thrift Stores and Bags

Hey there! Well, spring break is over. We didn't do too much--just hung around the house, went to the parks and had fun not being in school!!

I was able to grab a few hours here and there to go to my favorite thrift store. I am currently into vintage (or maybe just old!) pillow cases. At Thrift City (my favorite thrift store), I came across a lot of great stuff!!

I love all the pillowcases. I love how so many of them have sweet details on them.

And this is my favorite piece I found. I have no idea what it's original purpose is. And I have no idea what I'm going to do with it--but I'm really loving all things yellow right now, so I had to get it. For $2.99, how could I pass it up!! I really love the scalloped edge at the bottom.

I don't know what I'm going to do with that, but I've been making cute bags out of the pillowcases. They're really simple. No pockets, no frills really. I'm making them as a children's tote bag, similiar to this one I made Sam.

Sam and Henry LOVE putting stuff in bags. We take them outside and they get filled with leaves, rocks, acorns and other treasures we find walking around the block. I think they'll also be great to take to the library this summer, to carry our books home.

Hopefully other moms will like them too! I'm going to be a vendor at the Trade Days Event hosted by my in-laws church at the end of April. Should be fun!! I'll have tons of bags, aprons and other great stuff in a booth.

More soon! I made the CUTEST apron ever last night...can't wait to show you!
