Frugal Fun Finds Friday

A little wool on the hoof.... You have to influence then early right?
Frugal find of the day, ladies 100% cotton cardi, stain on the cuff $1.00. 7 Shell buttons alone are $2.50 for 4 at Hancock Fabrics.

As the front button placket was serged on I was only able to reclaim the back and sleeves, still it will be plenty for a sweater, booties & hat for Evelyn......someday.

The down side of reclaiming the yarn is the mess. Still worth it!


  1. Superb find! I love the color :) Your little girl is one lucky lady!

  2. I love this idea but every time I try it I end up making a mess not neat balls of yarn. I have to try it again after seeing your lovely yarn and your lovely little lady.

  3. you ppl stay up too late! (I just got internet today Yay!) I tried unravelling a sweater once.. guess it was too fuzzy and felted, and it was one of DH I have never seen him wear.. of course he found it and now I have to sew a cover with it....

  4. Your granddaughter is sure a pretty baby. And I've got to try thrifting for yarn someday. What a great find. Love the color.

  5. What a cutie. And the yarn is another great catch. I need to make it into your neighborhood sometime. After all, it's not that far away from me.


Hey! Thanks for stopping in I love hearing from my bloggy friends!
