In theory I’m trying to not buy Fabric at the moment. I identified 52 Projects for 2013, all from my current fabric stash! I figured that if I already have at least 52 fabrics that need sewing, I really need to start sewing them, not buying more. BUT this wasn’t really “buying”, I mean, not really...
There was no reserve on this auction, so I put a $1 bid in, just to see what happened... and I won it! Really, $1? That’s not really fabric “buying”is it?
2 ½ metres of a very thin white fleece4 metres of a peachy coloured tweed
2 metres of a two tone brown and gold curtain type fabric
4 metres of a pink body mesh
1.2 metres of a butter colours silk
1.3 metres of a georgeous aqua and tan tye-die type print1.5 of a grey/creamy lycra
4 metres of a pale stone coloured chifon
3 metres of a vanilla cream embossed furnishing fabric
90 cm of a white denim weight daisy print
2.2 metres of a black and gold print
1.4 metres of white lining
2 metres black chiffon
1.6 metres of a yellow and black print
2 metres of a navy and rasberry pink floral print
And more T shirting than I cared to measure – mostly black, but with some white, brown, red and green (all with matching ribbing)
There was alos about 10 lengths of less than a metre which will become trimming, bags and practice peices.
This was almost like Christmas! Three boxes of fabric, and at only a dollar I figure it doesn’t really count as “buying” fabric, so I don’t need to feel guilty.
