I’ve got quite a few patterns I’d like to make up at this point… now it’s just a matter of plotting out what I want in the fabric for them, deciding how much I can afford, and then seeing what I can find. I don’t have much in the way of a stash yet, and I don’t really plan to because of the whole tiny house thing!
Here’s an upcoming project that I’ve already bought fabric for.
I bought 2 yards of black cotton interlock and 1 yard of purple interlock. This will be my first project working with knits and I’m a little nervous about it (see: no serger). I’ll just do what the books tell me to do and cross my fingers!
Now that I’ve bought the fabric, I’m kind of kicking myself for it… I didn’t realize how expensive I was making this project! Luckily, I got the pattern on sale for $5, or I would really be upset! I got the fabric at JoAnn’s but the interlock is $10 a yard y’all… ridiculous! At least to me… that means that this shirt is going to cost $30 ($35 if I only make it once!), even after all the discounts. Holy cow! Where does the money saving come into play??
I like black and purple, but jeeze!
