Hi, I’ve been successful in finding affordable fabric for sewing projects by going to my local thrift shop on brown bag days. They are held twice a year, at the end of summer and before Christmas. They give you a large brown grocery bag and you pay just $6 plus tax. Fill it to the top (level) with whatever you want. Lol, you should see how tight we women can roll clothing and stuff that bag. Many people buy 5-6 bags at a time. I head for the men’s section and buy the largest men’s clothing I can find. In the past I’ve gotten like new, brand name men’s shirts that are wonderful for my projects. I do feel a bit guilty cutting these items apart, but they’ve been out on the sales floor for a very long time and haven’t sold, so at least I’m putting them to good use. Women’s clothing offers great buttons, beads and trims. I once bought a wedding dress for $5 and cut off all the pearls and other trim to re-use. I saved the satin fabric too. Children’s resale/consignment shops are also a good source for doll clothes. A baby doll can wear a preemie sleeper and the shop here in my town has regular sales with clothing for 50 cents. She gets so many items that she can’t afford to store it all. Kids grow quickly, so many items are in like new condition. I couldn’t make these items for 50 cents! Again, small zippers and cute buttons are abundant on kids clothes. Estate sales sometimes offer bargains, especially if the deceased had a lot and the family just wants it all gone ASAP.
I just love finding bargains!

I’m so excited to have found this site. Only wish I had it sooner. I love Little House, and often patterned my household from things I’ve learned from the books. I’ve raised 3 children in a simple, make due, waste want not want lifestyle. My youngest is graduating this year and we’ve Never owned a computer or game system. People are shocked to hear this. It’s getting harder to break free from technology these days. I now have 3 grandbabies, although I know they will be surrounded by technology, I hope to over them a cozy place to be “unplugged” and loved.
So look forward to enjoying all the information you offer here.?
