T.T.T...

A few weeks ago I was searching for fabric to make a bunting for the little miss.  I came upon an endcap at the store with a huge stack of bolts of fabric with a sign that read $1.  I asked the clerk if they were a $1 per yard and she said no, they were a $1 per bolt!  I may be a novice seamstress, but I know a good deal when I see one! 
Superman endorsing the awesome deal...

Each bolt contained 5 yards of fabric. I did a little easy quick head math and figured that I could make a set of curtains for our bedroom windows (two large) for under $5 per window!  Cha-ching!  I snatched up several bolts of the heavy-weight greyish-brown decor fabric for the windows (which is the very color and weight I have been searching for but couldn't find for under $20/yard) , and two bolts of a super-cool jersey fabric with a modern graphic design.  Given my addiction affinity for scarves, I thought the jersey would make awesome scarves for spring and summer.

revelling in my new addiction scarf...

So, let's do the math friends...seven bolts of fabric (5 yards each) at a $1 per bolt = $7 total for 35 yards of fabric!  Woo-Hoo! (here's me doing a happy dance!)

Not exactly thrifted, but hey...a deal's a deal!
