Bow Bracelets! Ugly fashion or wrong size, but COOL Fabric … What to Do

 

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?

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 🙂
