So, many Wal-Marts have destroyed their fabric section by no longer carrying fabric on the bolt (though I was told by a Wal-Mart worker that they'll be bringing the bolts of cloth back, though she didn't know when). The other day, our local Wal-Mart was getting rid of some bolts of fabric they still had--at $1 a yard!! Yes, you read that right, ONE DOLLAR A YARD!!!!
It wasn't paycheck week, so I couldn't go as crazy as I would have liked. So I took a deep breath and grabbed a few of my favorites:
You can't really tell the color right of this one. It's a nice, tan polyester--darker than it looks here. I practically saw the Jedi robes for Halloween jumping out of this one at me! I can't wait to get started on those! I emptied this bolt, about 4.5 yards.
I got two yards of this silky sheer. I'm thinking scarves for Christmas?
I have no idea what I'm going to do with the rest of the fabric. These are all cottons. I got 4 yards each of these:
And I emptied the bolt of the final yard of this one. Again, you can't exactly tell the color. It's on kind of a subtle lime green background (if lime green can be subtle):
Any project ideas jumping out at you for these cottons? My sewing machine is just itching to get it's...um...foot on these! =)
