See what I mean? I need accountability... I was done in by a big blanket size bag of fabric at Goodwill. I re-donated about a third of it. But, what was left was mostly Christmas - old Christmas, but fabric, nonetheless. Luckily, for my statistics, this kind of treasure doesn't come along very often.
This piece was 6 yards but there were other pieces for a total of 12 1/4 yards, great for backs.
This was the biggest piece with 8 3/4 yards, another great back
The best part of goodwill treasures is the original purchase tags. What was an Alco discount store, and when, and 2 yards of fabric for 1.50. Nice
I fold my fabric around this ruler after meeting fold and selvage. It is a size that works great on my shelves.
I kept the odd panels, although very dated and umm... ugly, because I can use the instructions as printed words which I think is great.
Total cost was 6.99 for 48 official yards and some scraps or 14 cents a yard. whoop whoop. that is if I live long enough to use it.
