I love a good fabric sale! The fabricland one this month was pretty good with buy 1m get 1m free (or 2m free or 3m free depending on the type). Saved me a bundle! I didn't have specific projects in mind however so I bought some fairly random patterns. I made sure a few matched at least so I could use them together.
I washed them all up, ironed and folded them nicely all ready to be used! I realized during this process that the only time I ever iron has to do with sewing. I couldn't be bothered to actually make a shirt wrinkle free.... how boring ;) Too bad Ian hates it too... just means we have to grab certain clothing pieces straight from the hot dryer.... or wear them wrinkly!
I wanted to make something quick so I decided on this plastic bag holder found at Make It and Love It! I have needed something like this to collect my stash of grocery bags for a while. Now maybe I will use them as garbage bags instead of paying for those nice (expensive) kitchen bags.
I found this size is actually pretty large. I'd cut it down to 18" strips across and use only 7 instead of 9 pieces.
I love this fabric the most out of the ones I purchased so I used it on another project for my nieces...
They are far from flawless but I am having fun learning how to sew!
I'm still looking for someone who wants to go to Utah in October for this Sewing Summit with me (and upcoming baby).
