About a year ago I went to the beautiful St Andrews Market http://www.standrewsmarket.com.au/ and there was someone there getting rid of a huge stash or vintage fabrics. Needless to say I was in absolute heaven and she was selling them all for $1 a metre. I came home with about 12 metres of awesome fabric for $10. Very happy customer I was that day.
Here is one of the one dollar finds which is a vintage linen and absolutely stunning.
I've been looking at it for ages, not sure what to make, when today I made a spur of the moment decision.
Cushion Covers. Look how drab mine looked.
And now I love them. Why didn't I think of this earlier?
