Something drew me to the local ladies auxillary resale shop yesterday. I don't go there much but my car had the fabric antenna out and next thing you know, I'm parked in front. I look up and outside is a whole line of winter clothing all hung up neatly in a row with a sign saying
ALL WINTER CLOTHING MARKED DOWN TO $1.00 TODAY!
well, did I have some fun :-)
I got 12 100% wool coats, skirts and pants to felt for projects. All good quality - why the buttons alone would be worth a buck! The fuscia skirt on the top is a suede for a purse or bag. I also got a London Fog hooded raincoat in my size for me to actually wear as well.
So now I'm looking for ideas and patterns to make stuff with felted wool. I want to do some pincushions to sell at the quilt show in june or some othere sewing related wool felted item.
trouble is, I should finish up about 4 other projects - (sigh)
nah, what's one more project in the works ...... or two .... or three :-)
