Where You Can Save Money With Your Sewing
Everyone likes to​ save money .​
With your sewing,​ it​ is​ easier to​ do than you might think .​
And…think about this,​ the​ more you save,​ the​ more you will have put aside when you want that special fabric or​ that new sewing machine.
Here are a​ few ideas to​ help you save money with your sewing that you may not have thought of.
Save buttons,​ zippers etc from clothing that has worn out .​
Keep a​ sectioned container and store these items,​ you will be surprised how often you can recycle.
Always check the​ remnant table when in​ your fabric store,​ you will find some great bargains .​
Often times you can combine like colors in​ prints,​ stripes and plain fabrics into an​ outfit,​ and all from the​ remnant table .​
With the​ cute tops around,​ like the​ camisole styles,​ they take little fabric so the​ remnant table is​ often a​ great place to​ find fabric for these.
You often see the​ plain color singlet style tops on​ sale,​ these can be made individual for just you,​ with beads,​ appliqués,​ braiding,​ cording,​ embroidery,​ once again,​ your imagination can have a​ party .​
End of​ season pattern sales are a​ great place to​ stock up on​ patterns,​ they can go at​ very reasonable prices,​ great savings.
If you buy end of​ season fabrics when they are on​ sale,​ you will have them to​ start your next wardrobe for next season .​
You will be a​ season ahead so to​ speak.
Check out the​ Manchester stores and soft furnishings .​
I​ use a​ lot of​ soft furnishing fabric,​ mainly because they are different and you rarely see them made up into fashion garments.

When flat sheets are on​ sale,​ they usually are really fantastic prices,​ they can make up into wonderful curtains,​ or​ join two to​ make a​ duvet/quilt cover,​ sew around the​ edges,​ leave one end open,​ add buttons and buttonholes and ….viola!!! a​ new quilt cover and matching curtains .​
They can also be made into a​ couch throws .​
Your imagination will have a​ wonderful time with what you can do
When interior design shops have to​ replace their sample ranges,​ many of​ these samples are just the​ right size for throw cushions and other craft items .​
It only takes a​ question and they can only say yes or​ no .​
If they say yes,​ you are a​ winner .​
If they say no,​ then ask the​ next design shop you find.
Check out the​ shops that have a​ rewards system .​
If you join as​ a​ member,​ when you have spent a​ certain amount you qualify for a​ discount on​ your purchases .​
See if​ you have one with this offer near you and take advantage of​ it .​
If there isn’t one,​ why not suggest it​ to​ your favorite supplier.
I hope these tips have given you some ideas,​ so start saving money with your sewing,​ it’s all in​ the​ planning.
