Oxfam Fashion blogger

I'm Cassie, a sewing and blogging addict who refuses to grow up. I'm quite possibly the thriftiest person you'll ever meet - my biggest gripe is paying for something 'new' if I can get it cheaper or free just by hunting around and second-hand shopping. I love spending time reusing, recycling and repurposing old clothing, furniture and household items to get the look for less.

My blog is a home from home for me and it's where I spend most of my time! I use it to share my craft projects, sewing tutorials, photography, adventures, recipes and everything I see that inspires me, so please drop by Cassiefairy.com soon!
