FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions - What am I going to do with this?



I bought this at Family Outreach.  You can buy clothes by the bag.  The money they make helps support families in need with food. I usually stop once every two weeks.  I find all sorts of cool stuff.  Most importantly I know it helps support some local families.  They also have fruits and vegetables from a local Amish farm.  


Over the past 9 years, I have purchased many clothing items and I would get them home and they didn't fit me... So what am I going to do with it?  Stayed tuned for a post next week to find out what I will make out of this shirt... Links in the sidebar for progress...


And these shorts... What will I make?






Hop over to my other blog to see what I made out of old clothes over the years.
Here's a quilt I made from old clothes.  I am sure, my daughter, Jewels will recognize her dyed shorts! 


Here are a few items I have found at Family Outreach.




























I love all the treasures I find for only a dollar or two!


Don't forget to hop over to the my other blog to see what I did with clothing items in the past. 


What do you think I will do with the shirt and the shorts? Any guesses?

My Life In Quilts said...

Very nice! I have bought many lovely things from my local shop called the Vestry, a lot like yours. The prices are always right! Lately I have been collecting men's flannel shirts and cutting them up to make a rag quilt. Cost of the quilt? Probably less than $15.00. And the shirts were not cheap either! I love a bargain!

I am a Wantobe Quilter and I would love to win the quilting prizes. I am registered with Marcia's Crafty Sewing and Quilting. I follow both of you and I am now following the guest blogger Monica Lee. I haven't got a clue what you might be making with your purchases. Will stay tuned to find out.

Loved your blog today as always! Have started a quilt with your pattern (easy quilt pattern I think it's called)! The fabrics are interesting as my Shorty found a crazy dragon fabric and begged me to make him a "blanket". Am anxious to start my project with Dad's shirts and hunting coat too especially after your blog today! Thanks so much for all the inspiration you rock Marcia!
