Final tally of fabric ? 316 m
Wanna see ?
Relatively clean cutting table, Bookshelves with sorted books (sewing, cross stitch, mags-BWOF, Threads, etc)
From top down - stacks of fabric (sorted by type), boxes with buttons & thread, small boxes with various notions, patterns somewhat sorted in the baskets, pressing accessories, sewing machine & serger on a clean table, ready to go.
Plastic bins, drawers sorted by type - there is another plastic bin in the pic above, under the cabinet just to the right of the serger.
See the tote bag on the back of the chair ? Yup, I did manage some sewing this week, too. My UFO List showed 2 totes in progress - all that was actually done were the straps. Now one is done and the other only needs the second strap attached and I'll have 2 new grocery bags.
I got this fabric from Fabric.com before I had any idea what I was doing. Based on the description that it would be good for clothes (totally not noticing that it is listed in the Home Dec part of the site !), I ordered 6 different patterns for skirts and dresses.
What arrived was VERY STIFF fabric. I prewashed one piece 3 times to see if it would soften up. It did...some and I made a skirt of it (M3341 - the one I 'didn't' post a pic of). It is actually pretty comfortable and I will wear it alot but while I'll probably make 1 or 2 more skirts, this fabric will work much better for totes and aprons - my generic store grocery bags will soon be replaced with a mish-mash of fabric bags !
