Guess What...I've Been Back to Goodwill
Ok... I know I said I've got to quit buying fabric, but when I find it at the Bins, I MUST get it. I can't help myself. It's a problem. I should be sewing more and shopping less. And I will, I promise. hehehe
Since the damage is done this time, let me show you the bargains I got this week.
There was a lot of fabric this week, all vintage, which I adore. I also found a couple of zippers (always useful) and some sparkly, vinyl cording. I have NO idea what I'll do with that, but it was pretty and interesting so I snagged it.
I LOVE this bumblebee fabric. There was about a half yard and I'm thinking I'll make a bucket hat with it.
The Texas fabric was a real find for me since I live in and love the Lone Star State.
And, there were several vintage Debbie Mumm fabrics which I will definitely use for something.
Since my scrap buckets are about to pop like a woman 9 months pregnant with triplets, I decided to go ahead and cut this load down into precuts as much as possible. I ended up with:
- A dozen pieces of yardage ranging from a half-yard to five yards
- 10" squares
- 5" squares
- 2.5" squares
- 1 pre-made binding (striped fabric almost always gets made into binding at my house!)
- A large piece of mini-panels that I'll make into a baby quilt
- And a very small stack for my bulging scrap buckets
Now, it's back to the sewing board... Until next time, keep it scrappy, y'all!
