I Just Have to Tell Someone Who Gets It

Did you ever have one of those fabric finds that you want to tell everyone about?  Unless someone is really in to fabrics, they don't get it.  While you are excitedly telling them about this great fabric you found at an even greater price, they just look at you.  Even when you show them the fabric, they still don't get it!!!  Oh, Lord, please don't ever let me be one of them.  Let me always have the desire to look at, touch, and yes, even smell the fabric!  Such pleasure!!

Anyway, back to my story...

Yesterday, I stopped at the local Walmart in town.  On the way to the back of the store, I had to (well, I didn't really have to but I know that most of you that are reading this get it) pass the small fabric department.  I have been looking for linen type fabric for awhile but have not been happy with the weight of it.  Look what I found....

 It's really hard to see in pictures.  I've taken 12 different pictures this morning and I keep getting squiggly lines on the photos.  This fabric is a 54 inch wide natural linen color fabric with a striped pattern to it. It is of more substantial weight than real linen.  I fell in love and had to have it.  You know the best part???  They had it clearanced price at.....

 $3.00/yd!!!!!!!!!  Here is a better close up view of the decorative stripes.  Now the biggest question of all...what type of bag do I make with it?????


  1. Hi Marilyn,
    I get it. I love the smell of Fabric and whenever I buy some I just have to smell it!!! That is a great finding. The texture is great. Maybe you can make a bag that has a big flap on front and use it on the flap. Or even on the Pleather Uptown Pattern you can use it on the insert. It's so beautiful that it needs to be featured in a big piece on a bag. I just found your blog. I'm a bag making addict too.

  2. Welcome, Norma. I've seen your beautiful bags! I know you get it!
