This week I broke down and bought fabric. At Joann’s I picked up the lavender below for the lining of a bag and the light bluish-greenish is for a top I want to finish in February. I’ve ordered additional fabric for the top and I’m waiting on that. I bought 2 yards of the lavender and 3.5 of the bluish-green.
I also stopped by a couple of thrift stores in the area and found the following fabrics:
They’re for nothing in particular, but I kind of liked them. The brown polka dot has 2 yards ($1.49), the light plaid has 2 yards (79 cents), and the Bob the Builder fabric is four panels and measures 1 ¼ yards (79 cents). I didn’t know it was Bob the Builder when I bought it because it was rolled up and taped, and you’re not supposed to un-do the rolls. But I figured whatever it was, for the price, I could always cut it into scraps. I’ll probably hang on to it a while…you never know if I’ll need to make something with Bob!
So my total in for the week was 10.75 yards and out was a big fat zero!
Used year to date: 16.0 yards
Used this week: 0 yards
Added year to date: 0 yards
Added this week: 10.75 yards
Total net used 2014: 5.25 yards
