Trying really, really hard to curtail my purchases. Not only am I becoming more and more reluctant to add to the fabric stash, but, well, the financial future is a little iffy, although My Sweet Babboo has some very solid job leads developing and we're hopeful that he'll transition to another company in the area. But, well, temptation crossed my path and I succumbed.
I came across an interesting piece of fabric at Fabric Mart...at first glance, it wasn't much, but they had a picture of it on one of their employees and I thought, 'Now, THAT'S different...'
But ....according to the website, all you have to do is cut around the border on the outer edge and the inner holes and, bingo, it's a vest with a drapey collar!
But, looking at how the panel is curling, I think it's going to take a bit of effort to deter that.
I'm thinking I'll fold the fleecy band to the other side and hand stitch it down. That should deter the curling on the outer edge; I might not need to do that for the arm holes.
It will be very warm and funky...
And, while I was there, I also snagged a piece of cotton/lycra t-shirt jersey with a cool blue/white marbled print. Been wanting some cozy long sleeved t shirts...that will be great.
But this *should* be the last fabric in of the year.
