Hello girls! Today I’m sharing some tips on how to save money on sewing as well as how you can make your home look gorgeous on the lowest budget possible.
Talking about sewing, as you all know I’m still a student and my budget is always limited, it has become a regular thing for me to spend money very thoughtfully on fabrics and such.
One thing that always works for me is to buy fabrics that are on sale, unless I really need something specific. To sew gifts, I always use the fabrics that I get on sale. And the good thing is, there’s always something good on sale at one time or the other. You can easily get some gorgeous prints if you visit the stores often. It’s more like hit and miss.
Recently with the opening of Spotlight stores in KL, I’ve gotten access to some gorgeous fat quarters which is a HUGE money saver. Whenever there’s a sale I grab as much as I can for half price. They are so useful, I even made a complete bag with it.
Another way of saving money on home decor fabrics is recycling. Once I turned old curtains into bed skirt and pillow covers which turned out perfect. I didn’t have to spend any money on getting new fabrics which brought down the cost of my room decor to a very small value.
As far as room decor is concerned, I’m always looking for ways to use craft techniques along with cheap plastic items to make something unique and fit for the room. Like the gold spray paint which is my new bff!
Now let’s talk about Giving Assistant, another great way to save money while shopping.
