And on Thursday night, I was gifted with a bunch of other fabrics from a quilter. Some of the lengths are just too small for me to do much of anything with, as I'm not a quilter. Some of the other fabrics were decent lengths. Let's get to the haul.
This green and navy poly blend was 42" or 44" (can't remember). It's already cut into a Hazel dress. I just can't get enough of that pattern. I think this was a 60" fabric, which is why I was able to get so much dress out of so little fabric. I hope to sew that up this week.
This is actually a BLACK background. My camera hates black. There is maybe 1/2 yard here. It will be a struggle to get anything out of this. Maybe a tank top?
I think this is 40" of what appears to be a crepe back satin. I like the dots, but this might have to become pillowcases.
This is a decent length of a poly blend. I don't remember it having any stretch to it, so this fabric goes into the Danger Zone. It's another black fabric.
I love this one too. It's 30" of a home dec fabric. More pillowcases?
More polyester Danger Zone fabric. This one even comes with some holes in it. I do have somewhere in the neighborhood of 52" of this one.
I think this one was 60" of a polyester "let's pretend this is silk" fabric. Not sure what this will be. I might just list it on ebay and hope for the best.
About a yard of a purple dotted knit. This could be PJs. We'll see.
Random tiny bits of fabric for more pillowcases. This is probably what the gifter had in mind with all these fabrics. I do like the colors.
This is about 54" of knit. It looks very childish. I don't know any kids to make PJs for with it. That's exactly what this fabric reminds me of.
A fancy stretch knit (dance type) fabric. I could see myself making a slip with some lace detail out of this.
More weird "let's pretend this is silk" polyster taffeta stuff. I hate taffeta. I think it's 50" worth.
Getting new fabric is always fun, especially when it's free! I know I won't be able to use all of it, but even just that green and navy stripe was worth the effort of picking the fabric up! I got my serger last week and I successfully threaded it and sewed a project on it. I don't like using the blades. I might once I figure out the fabric feeding placement, but for right now, those things are lowered.
I need to get busy sewing! My fabric tub is overflowing now. FWP? It is nice to have a bit of a fabric stash built up because I can think of something I want to make and find something to make it with in the stash. I also just hate letting that money sit there. How do you get over that? I know I have the money when I buy the fabric, so I really should just forget about it. I just feel like what I bought is being wasted by just sitting there in the bin. How do you get over the "stash guilt?"
