I sewed these pretty cushions for a couple of chairs, I just recovered some pillows I already had that my Mr. didn't really like and they were the perfect size.
My 13 year old son has been going to a couple of soccer camps this summer and has been have a really good time. He needed a new gym bag and I went out to try and thrift one! I found one right away at the first store I went to! I got this awesome bag, Nike! for 1.50! It looked almost new but I ran it through the handwash cycle and hung it to dry. He wasn't too thrilled when I told him I had thrifted him a bag but when he saw it he completely changed his tune, he loved it and thought it was great. Beats spending 20-30 dollars on a new bag, we can spend that money on the fair this week instead! Priorities after all : ) I was very pleased to find this nice bag.
I also found a new book bag for my college age son, it is a pretty nice bag too in great shape at the same store. It is a Quiksilver bag for 2.00 which goes nicely with the Quiksilver mini backpack I thrifted for him a few months ago for 1.50 that he really likes. I gave it the same treatment in the washer, hung it out to dry and it looks and smells like new too : ) It's so much fun to find something someone needs and you know they're going to like!
