First of all, I want to know where Nikki from Nikki’s Nifty Knacks shops, because she found some K&Company Amy Butler fabric tags and buttons at her favorite dollar store. Say what? That’s amazing. Then she found a sweatshirt for just one buck at her dollar store, too (I have actually seen those at my local Dollar Tree – amazing deal!). She combined the two to make a pretty embellished sweatshirt for less than $2. Perfect way to welcome fall, don’t you think? Thanks to Nikki for posting her great project at the Dollar Store Facebook page. [how to make an embellished sweatshirt]
If you aren’t lucky enough to find these Amy Butler supplies at your local dollar store, check your regular craft store, or buy a tiny bit of designer fabric at your local fabric store and add it to the sweatshirt the same way Nikki did. You can even use a freezer paper stencil to add an inspirational sentiment to your cute fabric.

Maybe it’s the dollar store called Mighty Dollar? My friend lives near one and has found the most amazing craft things there (for just $1 each)! Too bad they’re only in a few states …
Thanks for the feature!!!! :D
The dollar store where I found those is called “Dollar Superstore” and they have the most AMAZING stuff. I can spend hours there just digging. From Hallmark wrapping paper, to name brand scrapbooking supplies, its just incredible. I drive an hour each way to go there, but believe you me, its welllllllllllllllllllll worth it! ;)
thanks for the tip about mighty dollar in the comment above! i just found out there is one near one of my favorite thrift shops (^_^) that i unfortunately hadn’t been out that way in a while.
