I thought this sounded like a good idea and I am was am on board. I have already allowed that second hand does not count, let’s not go CRAZY. But today I blew it with one very cool purchase! I embarrassed myself, and probably all of you as well, while paying for it at the counter. I said, and I cringe, “All my blogger friends are going to be so jealous!”. I said it OUT LOUD. To another human. I completely dorked out and maybe secretly I wanted the very hip cashier lady to say, “Oh, you blog?” thus thinking me immensely more interesting and cool than she previously had summed me up to be. Moving on.
You really are going to be jealous though. Is this not the COOLEST fabric ever? I paid more than I usually do for fabric but come on! The aforementioned cool cashier lady said it was made in South Africa. I bought it here.
Here it is all packaged up. It’s a little over 2 yards, is my guess.
I like this bit and hope to use it to make a stencil. I’ve been wanting to do some etched pint glasses. It’s on the list.
Cool selvedge which I thought was called salvage until this amazing crafter.
Now some would have ironed prior to taking these shots.
I bet I could beat 90 % of them at arm wrestling. 100% at air hockey. That last one is a FACT.
I do not know how I am going to cut into this. But cut I must as my 6 year old (who was with me for his dental appointment) has requested a pillow for rest time at school with Obama’s face in the center.
I have a project for me in mind as well. Will share when it comes to fruition.
Hope you are having a hopeful day! (and that you are a twinge jealous)
