More Fabric Bargains

Today I stopped into a couple of places looking for more inexpensive knit fabric. First I hit Hancock Fabrics over on 38th. This is not my favorite fabric store but they do have good deals once in awhile. Now that I am enjoying sewing these fleece hoodies I have to stop in there and check because they sell a LOT of fleece (for those no-sew blankets, I guess) and they put some nice big pieces of it into a separate remnant pile and mark it at $3 per yard. Even the softer, more expensive fleece. Today I picked up enough of this nice purple fleece to make myself another hoodie. I love purple. I got a little over 2 yards, 64" wide, for $6.50.


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.

There are some really good knit fabrics out there. Those are very pretty and good prices.
I am still waiting for my walking foot arriving, it is frustrating seeing all the projects everyone has made for the class and I can't do mine.
In the meantime I am just about to finish off my Colette Clover pants which I have done 14 million alterations on, LOL.

I'm a bargain huntress. I hate, hate, hate paying full price for anything. I almost can't do it anymore.

Darn, I hope your walking foot arrives soon. I had to wait a bit for mine so know how frustrating that is. Especially when you're spinning your wheels, wanting to start. I want to start my purple hoodie but am going to have a very busy couple of days. Might have to wait until the weekend.

I have to say, you sure get a LOT of sewing accomplished, Lynne.
