Learn How To Sew And Save Money Doing It.

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. Andthink 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, appliqus, 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 isnt 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, its all in the planning.
