A friend of mine gave me a huge bag of drapery samples a few years ago...most of them I cut into strips to make fabric bowls but a few "interesting" ones, I kept to make totes...yeah, it is weird what people use for curtains...and, the fabric was not cheap!  The tag said is was $109 per yard!

How nice to have a real fabric section at your Walmart, Aprettymess!  Also, those big store we don't have (Joanns & HL) explains it too.  I love seeing your creations with fun fabrics.
thanks so much. i was actually kinda embarrassed to say wal mart because people frown on me for that. but i have got some great quality fabric for as cheap as $1.50/yd there i should be making my dresses soon (class starts in a few weeks) and then you will see some of my cheap fabric

tryskal, may i ask how you mend dog toys? i always throw things out that can probably be fixed
aimr i am excited to see your owl pillows!
 
heres the nautical pillbox hat i finished yesterday:

you can focus on the ship, or "bon voyage" waves depending how you sit it on your head. i guess you could even focus on the anchors if you wanted but im partial to the other 2 options

aprettymess...I think it depends on what you are making...fashions change so much and let's face it, we all get tired and bored of our clothes and bags...I think it is great to be able to make quick, cheap and fun clothes to wear a season or two...you can always use the money saved for things that will last longer, like a good white blouse, dark skirt, etc. Ignore the looks and just have a blast!

ha ha Your little hats are so cute...

Oh my gosh, I need to remember this the next time someone starts complaining about the $5 a yard prices at work.

Love fabric from walmart, Last year our walmart remodeled and got rid of all the material, they just brought it back it isnt as large, but I am happy to have it back.

aimr that is so true! and even if fashions dont change too much my fashion moods do lol and thanks
bookstorebabe thanks so much! you made my day  Kiss
beth the walmart that i like best had closed the fabric dept and just brought it back too and its small. but if i go to one right by the border crossing into mexico (i live right by it, i just dont like to frequent that one as much) i can find tons of fabric options and lots for $1.50 and in my opinion the quality is just fine

oh I'm so jealous of the prices of fabric in the US, but then again my stash would be SO MUCH BIGGER if our prices here were cheaper. Unless I'm looking fabric for a specific project all my fabric is bought either on sale or at the clearance table. I can get quilting fabric for 4-6 dollars on clearance otherwise its generally 15. I envy your 5 dollar fabric and you walmart 1.50 stuff even more!

apm, your pill box hats are so cute! And that naked cupcake is cracking me up.

I'm currently working on finishing a blanket for myself... a scarf for my brother that is months overdue... stuff for a swap... and setting up a new etsy.
Hopefully I'll have a few things to post soon!

Those pill boxes are amazing and everyone seems to be getting their stash so organised too.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.
