My Lil Gnomie

Halloween costumes are so fun to sew and this might be my favorite one. I just wanted to post a pix of the finished product. It was from a pattern so I can't take credit for anything but the cute kiddo.

The Bins

I have been a thrifter for a while and I just discovered that the Goodwill has an outlet here in NY. Long Island city to be exact but, "the bins" are my new bargain shopping spot. I have decided to wear my "finds" over this holiday season and show that upcycling is the new way to dress. You can dress in very stylish outfits for next to nothing. Seriously, I bought about 15 pieces for under 40 dollars and I will be posting my outfits on blogs to come. Let me know your thoughts.
