Sequins, off-cuts and an alternative LBLUK list
Popped into a fabric shop next door to the locksmith and got a couple of bargain offcuts. When I got home, (after a little rest) I made this little t-shirt for my DGD. I was pretty pleased with it, but on pressing it, the shiny bits were coming off, so it isn’t going to last long Shame. Oh well, on to the next one. That off cut was only £1.50, so not much lost. I’ll check the fit tomorrow when I see DGD, and I have lots of other fabric that can be pressed into t-shirt service, including unused (too small – sssh) t-shirts.
The other off-cut is this lovely cotton jersey. It is 2.15 metres of 64 inch wide fabric, for £7.51. So plenty there for a long t-shirt for me and DGD, and something else too.
In the meantime, here’s another possible LBLUK shopping list, got some sardines in this one :).
|2 tins tomatoes||£0.62|
|250g baking spread||£0.39|
|value marmalade or jam||£0.27|
|2 tins sardines in oil||£0.74|
|800g wholemeal loaf||£0.40|
|tin kidney beans||£0.23|
