Me and the girls and one of their friends went to the Sunday Market yesterday, we haven't been for a while and I forget how marvellous it is. It's like an English car boot/flea market cross and we always come away with something, for not very much which at the moment is a good thing. So this is what I got.
I thought this t-shirt would make a nice colourful cushion cover, I like these old fashion style tattoo designs, I don't think I would wear the T-shirt though. The lady was selling so many hippy clothes that I would have worn in the late 80's early 90's it made me feel a little nostalgic, but also a little queasy. Especially the purple tassle top. We live and learn (sometimes) (hopefully).
This is a childs top and the perfect size for my little girl. I had to bribe her to try it on for me with the offer of chocolate cake, she looked adorable and tres cool in it, but I fear she will never wear it, but it was only $1nz so it was worth the risk.
A little strappy black top with nice embroidery was bought to make dolls dresses or maybe something else. It made a very cool little dress with very little effort as I used the strap already in place and just had to sew a back seam attach other end of the strap at the back, and some poppers. Voila!
It has nice colours and I am hoping that I can do something with it to make it more wearable. its quite short already so may have to add some other materiels I obviously thought I was thinner than I am. Or the dress was bigger.
So there we go, I probably spent $6nz in all so not bad, but I did resist the fresh donuts and hot chips. Don't anyone tell my husband there is a fresh donut stall at the Sunday Market please.
