Thrifty Thursday- Recent charity shop buys

I’m writing this still in awe of what has just come into my possession.

My lovely, fabulous and “taught me all I know about thrift” Dad, scored big time for me earlier this week. See I’m thrifting even when I’m not πŸ˜‰

We often ring each other if we see something the other might like… And this time I couldn’t believe my luck.

A truck load of vintage sewing patterns!! And bonus points added for them not being in tiny sizes either they are all (vintage) size 16, which me being a 12 should translate pretty well measurements wise.

Enough of my chattering though you want to see right? Prepare to get a tad envious if you are into this sort of thing.

And all for the princely sum of Β£6.

It might be a while before I can use them though being halfway through my pregnancy! Its fair to say I’m very excited about making some of these though.
