I then found the rest of their clearance, on a table at the back of the store. I unearthed this interesting cotton knit jersey for $1.50 per yard. I like it because the stripes are vertical and have a bit of an organic feel. Just over 2 yards cost me $3.29.
But the bargain of the day was waiting next door at the Goodwill. I found this lovely tube of cotton knit fabric in a soft bubblegum pink. 1.5 yards by 66" for just $1. That's going to be a very affordable shirt.
