Ugly fashion or wrong size, but COOL Fabric … What to Do!
How many times have you come across a super ugly dress, or the wrong size blouse or pants at a thrift store, but darn they are made out of great fabric! Of course I always put it in my cart, pushing it around the entire time, hoping I can think of a way to make this item work for me … ha ha! Now I have found the perfect solution … make a Bow Bracelet!
Here is a great example … this Lilly Pulitzer “house dress” is not the cutest thing or even close to it. Maybe 30 years ago a house dress was in style?
Or this little girl dress (my little girl is 14, this won’t work!) …
Soooo on Pinterest (here is a link to my Thrift Store Board) I found this awesome idea of making “bow” bracelets out of fabric! Make them from different clothing that has fantastic fabric or from men’s silk ties. The prices of clothing @ San Antonio Goodwill stores are cheap!!!! Silk Ties only $1.99, Dresses $5.99 @ San Antonio Goodwill stores … AMAZING prices!
Here are some ideas: I think you could make 50+ bow bracelets from one dress! Sell them, eeek …. they sell from $20 -$40 each or give them as gifts. What a fun way to use adorable fabric. If you know me … you know what your next gift will be
