Someday Has Arrived!
This post is for all my fellow seamstresses. I know you all buy fabric because you plan on doing something with it "someday." While you are making these purchases your supply is getting bigger, and bigger, and bigger. But, when you are about to make a new project that requires more than a few scraps, what do you do? You walk right past your already purchased fabric and head out for some new fabric for the project. Come on, admit it! I know you all do it! Well, I'm here to tell you that my "someday" has finally arrived for my biggest "someday" purchase.
What you are look at is about 25 yards of good quality decorator fabric. Back when I worked at JoAnn's we would get awesome discounts. Our everyday discount was 15% off of everything including coupons, sale prices, and clearance items. About five times a year they would have double discount day and we would get 30% off of everything! Double discount day is always during the best sales of the year.
Anyway, this fabric was already 50% off (one of their killer sales), minus my 30% double discount and I got a bargain! I loved all three of these colors together and knew that someday I'd use it. Of course I didn't stop at the fabric, you see decorator trims too.
I've already designed the curtains from the striped fabric, which will be embellished with a buttoned valance. I also see a wall organizer, covered boxes, and whatever else I can think of. These will be good projects to work on while I'm putting my room together. Of course, I'm still sewing on the dining room table for now.
So, how big is your "someday" fabric stash?
