I made a quick trip to the Duck so my son could help me with some roof work. that only took about an hour. So, my sister and I did a few thrift store runs. I was specifically going to see if i could find anything in leather to use for quilting.
I think I did all right.
First stop.....little store downtown
Had to spend $30 for the red jacket and skirt
2nd stop .... a couple of pieces for $4.50 each
A cool gray jacket
And a brown vest that I love....it looks like it is pieced. That will make a cool background piece
3rd Stop.....all jackets were $4.99
I got a beige one...
And a brown one...
And this awesome coat...with a hood....and an yoke like piece in the back
And an orange shirt for $2.99
Next stop was a new shop we had never been in. it looked kind of expensive, but right inside the door was this nice yellow jacket for $4
And if that wasn't enough....we stopped one more place and I scored a purple coat for $4. I like the white stitching in the back, although that will probably disappear in the de-construction.
So, I got lots of colors....10 pieces...for about $70. and i think i will have lots of leather fun in the next few weeks. I am tempted to just take the current quilt off the frame and get on with the leather.....but i guess i really should finish quilting it. sigh!!!!
