with an umbrella are needed for this
That’s what went through my mind when I found this fabric in the remnant bin a few days ago.
Actually what happened is that I squealed and the guy in the store told me I was a naughty girl out shopping for fabric when most people were in watching what was happening in Japan. Great, nice guilt trip dude!
But seriously, I scored almost 4 yards of this polished cotton, Robert Kaufman fabric. I love the combination of turquoise and brown – really one of my favorites.
Now I need a special dress pattern for this. I am thinking 50’s but may have to go a little smaller on the skirt since I do only have almost 4 yards.
I do love remnant bins. They can be overwhelming but the treasures. With this purchase, I also picked up a teeny bit more than a yard of purple velvet and about 4 yards of a lavender cotton that I need for a lining material. All this for $6. This place charges by the pound. Yes, gotta love those remnant bins.
