TheSaffireMoon- Is the crochet/knit style fabric actually crocheted or knit or is it a fabric printed that way? The pictures make it look like it's actually crocheted or knit.
If so how would one go about using something like that? It's interesting but I'd be afraid of it coming unraveled where it was cut.

Yes, it is actually crocheted or knitted, not a screen print or dyed to look like that.  I would say this would be a fabric for a duster or beach coverup, or jacket thingy with a tank top under it.  This would best be used by someone with a serger to keep it from unraveling.  This fabric has already been washed, but it has been in storage so may have a faint musty odor.  It did well when it went through the wash.

Actually, they do not have any.  Woven polyester, I was going to use it for renaissance faire tent decorations, but have decided to do something else, so these never got used.  They are washed and ready to go though!

I'm here and I'm ready to claim!  I've had finals so I've been busy studying!

Anyway, I'd like to claim the FQ of purple print cotton, FQ sports flannel and 1/2 yard of checkered fabric.  ::Does math in head, yup that should be right  Cheesy ::

Here's what I have!  Everything is 100% cotton unless it says otherwise.  I'll add even more tonight, I'm cleaning out the garage to set up my studio so there's lots I'm bound to find:


Bright Blue tie dye flannel up to 1 yard


Teapots - just short of 1 yard, we'll call it 3/4 yard


Cats and clouds - 1/2 yard


Pokemon - 2 yards total available


Butterflies on blue - up to 1 yard


Bears - 2 yard total available  Gator - 1/2 yard available  *Aliens no longer available


Plaid Pigs - 1 yard   Americana town - 1/2 yard


Bright fish on bright pink - 2 yards total available


Red Toile Flowers - up to 1 yard  *Red Toile scenic no longer available


Daisies - 1/2 yard   Butterflies on light blue - up to 1 yard  Veggies - up to 1/2 yard


Baseball Bears - 2 yards total available


Parachutes and hot air balloons - 1/2 yard

I don't mind cutting anything if you want smaller pieces.  Everything has been washed (as far as I know, I inherited most of these and others were given to me to make quilts to donate but I need things that coordinate a little better)
