Affordable crafting and sewing supplies?

I have set myself a challenge, to visit one of the many economy stores that are popping up and to see what supplies I could find.

I think you may be surprised…

Fabric duvet sets

Fabric, table runners, t-towels, and of course bed linen. This single duvet cover for £6.99 which is the equivalent of 4 metres of fabric, for the same price I would gain one metre of the equivalent economy fabric in a fabric shop.

Foam tape

Tape, I was looking for parcel tape and double sided tape – have you seen this great tutorial for fabric washi tape, made with double sided tape and fabric scraps?  What I found was foam double sided tape – great for mounting:) Plus Pritt stick glue and wallpaper samples, perfect for card making.


Wool – you can never be short of wool:)


Affordable storage for your crafting supplies.

I didn’t find everything I expected to. I guess that is part of economy store shopping.. you never know what they have in stock!

I always take a look at the discount store, you never know when you are going to find some treasure.

I recently made a long cushion with 4 pillows that I picked up there for less than £5 each! The bedding is a great buy, like you say you can't buy fabric by the yard at that price.

That looks like a Home Bargains to me! We have one near us and it's great. I have found loads of bargains in there. Apparently the reason that they can sell their stock so cheap is because they don't pay for advertising. Works for me :) Thanks for sharing on #ThriftyThursday

Try local car boot sale, you might be really surprised to see what other people want to get rid off. So many real gems to be found!

Car boots are great aren't they:) My kids are not quite so tolerant re rummaging at car boots sadly, last time we went to one I picked up some pillowcases for 25p each:)
