Fabric Sale


I am back home, tired and happy, after a wonderful weekend trip with daughters, garage sales, multiple Dairy Queens while traveling, breakfast at Cafe Brazil (my favorite breakfast place)while in Dallas, and Canton.

It is an 8 hour drive one way (from where I live)- if you do not stop. I repeat- if you do not stop. I am a stopper…

One of my favorite side trips was visiting fabric warehouses in Dallas.


The clincher was this: the fabric was $3-$5 a yard and in one store, if you bought at least 5 yards, it was $2 a yard. This is what I got.


Red toile- $5 a yard- This may go on a couch.

Canton (4)

Pinky red remnant-$2 a yard- this may go on dining table chair seats.

Canton (7)

Medallion fabric-$3 a yard- this may go on dining table chair seats.

More views-

Next I found ANOTHER fabric that I may use on my dining table chair seats, and I love this. It was $2 a yard. You may have noticed a pattern. Apparently I will be covering millions of chair seats.

And I couldn’t resist this at $2 a yard for my grandsons. I am going to make 2 blankets.

Two grandsons=2 blankets=no fighting over blankets, right???

Now I need to get busy…

I go all those places, too, Laura, most recently Wherehouse to buy yards and yards of fabric to have a pageant dress made for my daughter last year. You got some great deals there. I love all that red! Can't wait to see what you do with it - at least we know you're going through a "red phase". Have fun!
