The flea market was small, with only 15 booths, but all of them had really great stuff. With great self control, I wandered past the racks of vintage aprons and trays of old silverware that would make perfect fork rings and stuck to my list.
Drip coffee maker
I did pretty well, actually! I found two huge candle holders for our fireplace which is now crowded with mismatched sized pillar candles, an old copper strainer, a fabulous and unused drip coffee maker, an Alabama sweatshirt (what are the chances?!) and an old white bed liner. I always get the strangest looks when I'm thumbing through used sheets (understandably so), but it makes great scrap fabric.
I love the scalloped edging on this and it inspired me to finish a project that's been on my list for a while: altering a thrifted, gray sweatshirt that needed a little sprucing up.
The sweatshirt is incredibly comfortable with a great fit, but the neck was much too tight. I cut the collar into more of a boat neck shape and then added a little lace embellishment. All I did was cut out a pocket-shaped scrap and hand sew it on, using a whip stitch.
Ta-da. Cute, comfy sweatshirt that no longer slightly strangles me.
