I live in Pennsylvania--about an hour north of Philadelphia. The fabric store is locally owned and operated by a really great older gentleman, and he is awesome!

I love the new shirts that have crocheted motifs on them--almost like a doily of sorts. Very vintage too. You could also put a cute appliqued shape on your cardigan to cover the stains, which could be very cute. There are lots of ideas on this site, just poke around a bit. As far as thrifting goes, I have relaly only bought linens to use as fabric. I've done this with tablecloths, sheets, pillowcases, and curtains. I think though you need to look more at the shape--don't tackle anything too hard right away or you'll just get frustrated! I haven't done anything huge yet but some of the ladies on this site are AMAZING for inspiration!

To tea dye I just put a kettle of water on the stove and let it get really hot and then poured the water over 9 tea bags in a Tupperware-type plastic basin and let it steep for a little bit, take the bags out, and then stuck my white tank top in it for about an hour. I swished the shirt around for awhile. I then rinsed the shirt and hung it to drip dry in my shower. There are some darker parts to it, but overall it looks good.
