I have a great idea for fabric from the thrift stores! Look at long prom dresses…especially ones with a lot of fabric or bows to them. Check them well, for spots, but a lot of these are in satin,lace,etc. Think of the wonderful pillows, chair covers, placemats, napkins, etc. that you could make from this! This is just another way of thinking “out of the box” and being able to think of a new use for a lot of fabric, at a very resonable price!
