21  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Swap a Yard of fabric- July '09 on: July 23, 2009 11:00:00 AM
Hi Girls
I claimed early on in the swap from Klum, cute alien fabric and told myself I would not claim again unless I used what I had claimed. 
As soon as the fabric arrived my ds said "oooh can you make me pyjamas?".  So I ignored my fifty thousand other ufos and made him these.
Thanks for the fabric Klum!

I love it.  Did you cut out the applique on the shirt from the fabric?  WOW!  Does this mean you're going to swap some more?  I've been waiting for you (I still want that paisley FQ).  haha

this was with holding my camera about 9-10 inches above the fabric. does this help any? there is no border left on the fabric where i could get information so i am still at a lost. the fabric feels thicker than i would think plain cotton would be. it is also softer on one side than the other. am i just confusing you more?

as for the brown fabric. it feels/looks like velvet on one side, but the other side is dull and seems like cotton.

Thank you for that.  You were very thorough.  Very nice of you.

Lo{ve}...7) green home decor fabric/upholstery weight. FQ...looks like cotton, is it?  Or chintz maybe?

The green and white fabric....is it a stripe?  All I see is green.  Is it chenille?

The brown, possibly velvet...not velveteen, right?

Wow, sorry for all the questions.  I started just wanting to know about the green FQ, but the others kept calling me.  Haha.  BTW, I love your dinos.  All of them are so cute.

I'm a quilter.  I think scrap quilting is the best.  If you're able to cut them into strips, log cabin is the best for first timers and long time quilters alike.  Tons of free 'how to's online, and probably tutorials here. 

As for #2, what type batting are you using?

Claims Allowed (Outstanding): 2
Claims made: 2
Sendouts Not Sent: 1
Sendouts Sent: 1
Sendouts Received: 2
#1 Up to 1 yard blue/green/brown knit (one way) with gold sequins and a 2" knit ruffle every 3".  Polyester and (maybe) a little cotton.  It's soft.  Beautiful, especially on the bias.  I bought way too much and literally want every garment in my closet made out of this.  But enough is enough.  1 yard was claimed by dooney, 1 yard was claimed by pixieval
#2  Up to 1 yard black on white knit (one way) polyester.  Very geometric.
#3  Up to 1 yard multi brights AMAZING print chiffon (sheer) polyester.  It's great and lots of shapes.
#4  Up to 1 yard TACOS NACHOS ETC. flannel 100% cotton.  Many more phrases on it like GUACAMOLE and OLE.  Not nearly enough for the BURRITO pj's I've always wanted, so it's time to set it free.  I've been hanging on to it too long.  Claimed by homerof2
#5  Up to 3/4 of a yard turquoise embroidered crinkle polyester satin.  The embroidery is this cool paisley.  So nice.
#6  Up to 3/4 of a yard lime sequin polyester satin.  Really this is GORGEOUS.  I lucked out after I found this little piece and discovered serious yardage.  Therefore this tasty morsel needs to be shared LOL
#7  Up to 1/2 of a yard.  This is a pink, metallic, BEAUTIFUL lame.  I don't really know the fiber content other than metallic.  But great stuff nonetheless.  The scan just doesn't do it justice.  It's a great pink.  I'll work on a better scan, but trust me, this would make a sick,sick,sick clutch for the evening.  Claimed by melmakespretty
#8  Up to 1/2 of a yard.  Cowboy and Cowgirl flannel 100% cotton.  Soooo Cute!!!  Claimed by melmakespretty
#9  Up to 1/2 of a yard.  Home Dec Gold/Grey/Light Brown polyester chenille-y boucle-ish Beautiful fabric
#10 Up to 1/2 red/white pirate stripe polyester satin.  Great stuff.
#11 Up to 1 yard pink/berry/black/white/gray flower flannel on white 100% cotton (coordinates with #12 and #13)
#12 Up to 1 yard pink/berry/black/gray/white stripe flannel 100% cotton (coordinates with #11 and #13)
#13 Up to 1 yard pink/berry/black/gray/white polka dot flannel 100% cotton (coordinates with #11 and #12)
#14 2 FQ knit thermal rainbow butterfly stars fabric.  So cute. CLAIMED BY ABBYROSE
#15 Up to of a yard black/white striped convict polyester satin.  I love it, but I have too much costume fabric as it is.
#16  Now this is my biggest sacrifice so far.  Its really a 32 piece, but Im calling it yard because its approximately 24 wide SHIRRED COTTON.  I got it to make a summer top for myself, but definitely a little girl can wear it as a dress.  The shirred part is approximately 6 wide.  Beautiful red hibiscus with little blue flowers on a black and white swirl background.    CLAIMED BY ABBYROSE
#17 up to 1 yard Plymouth cotton.  Meant to make an Aloha shirt for my gear head nephew but bought waaaay too much.  Go for it!

i feel stupid asking this but i am so confused as to how to measure the yardage of my fabric. for example, i have a piece which is 27x42, and 18x32, what are these considered?

I think it's safe to say the 27x42 is 3/4 yard.  I would count 18x32 as 1/3 yard.  I had a similar cut in my last post at 32x24 and called it 1/2 yard.  I get the square inches and divide by 44 to get the yardage.  But also mention the width if it's different than 44".

BTW...I kind of regret not waiting til I had another claim...I want Pixieval's purple Hawaii.  Such a tough call on my other claim on her.  Just not enough FQ's in a yard.  Hahaha

Maremare...Get in on it.  I've been sooo happy so far with my 3 claims.  Of the 4 claims made on my offers, it's been the same knit twice (but it's a pretty big deal Smiley), 2 different flannels and 1 tissue lame.  I just put my first quilting cotton up, it seemed that and heavier cotton is what people are looking for...I know I am.   

jessa_aka_jalapeno. ..I got a Hansel and Gretel panel from pixieval.  It is cute and not nearly as small as I pictured.  And their faces are like Campbell's Soup Kids.  Awwww.

pixieval...LOL I know.  I was the one that claimed yours once.  And I couldn't believe how I lucked out.

And now...I'm out of claims until Homerof2 and/or Dooney receive.  Booo.

I just added a cotton print to my list, everybody.  I'll dig around for more stuff tonight, if no one claims before then.  I just hope it's because it's the weekend and no one's near a computer to see the treasures I've offered.  LOL
