Fabric: My True Weakness

Joann's was having a sale... all flannel for $2 a yard. I went to *just* get a yard of green, and maybe a couple yards of girlie prints for wipes. But once I got there, I went a bit nuts. Came over with 16 yards of fabric in 15 different prints/colors. Oops!
Marbled tie-dye colors. I love these, as they coordinate so well with just about anything. These will be used in a couple rag quilts, as well as backings for various things.
Yikes, stripes! These will mostly be used for cloth wipes. Maybe a burp cloth or two.
Jumping frogs on the left will become a Loopy Lovey, and maybe a bib. Crazy flowers on the top will be wipes, bib and burp cloth. And the aliens will become a rag quilt.
The doggie prints on the left will be a rag quilt. And the sea creatures are already on their way to becoming a couple of changing pads. (My newest creation... coming soon to my shop!). I seriously don't have any more room for fabric. I'm recycling an old dresser, using the top as an ironing board/cutting board/craft table. And all three drawers are stuffed with fabric. I also have one of those 3-drawered plastic totes... also crammed packed. Guess I better get sewing and selling!

I am the same way when it comes to fabric - especially when it's on for SUCH a good price. I have also been given a lot of fabric over the last 2 years so I have SO much - I could probably sew for a full year and not run out! HA! I've been banned from the fabric stores (by my sweetie), unless I specifically need something for a specific project and then I can only get that thing. I've been doing SO good, too! Thankfully, the nearest Joanns is 45+ minutes away and across the border into the US! That kind of keeps me out of trouble...
