Fabric for NL6619
Here is the fabric I am going to use to make the New Look jacket. It is 100% acrylic, soft olive tapestry. I purchased this from Fabric.Com around Septemberish. I got it at a very reduced price, during one of their "gambler deals".
This photo makes the fabric look a little dull but the greens and browns, with touch of teal is really very sharp and crisp looking. I think that I have lining fabric in my stash to go with this.
I have not purchased fabric since before Christmas. I have been so tempted but really trying not to buy anything at this time. My DH's work hours have been sporadic since Christmas so I am trying to keep us on a tight budget.
Having the fabric stash contest at PR has been helpful as well. I never ever win those contests and only participate in a few, usually the fabric and pattern stash ones. Since the contest started I have sew up about 8 yards of fabric. No telling really what amount I have in my stash now. I have been cataloging patterns and some fabrics in my Stitch and Stash software program. I have a lot more of both to go.
