I'm sewing non-stop right now. Fabric, fabric, fabric... I've been buying bits here and there. I made 15 linen napkins this week and there will be several more still because I've got fabric I found in my stash yesterday being washed as I type.
My prizes this week have been two remnants of 1/2 yd linen and nearly 1/2 yd cotton velvet (which is something I like never see in stores! And at a JoAnn Fabrics, no less!) in the same color. How lucky is that?! I want to make an 18th century bodice with them as the outer fabrics... but of course, I have no pattern.
But what I really want to make are some tea towels... Old fashioned tea towels out of flour sack cotton... But I can't find any flour sack cotton that's not already cut up and/or cut up and hemmed into towels. I want to make them myself! (LOL! at me wanting more things to do.) And I don't want vintage fabric because... well... I'm silly, but I'm just not comfortable cutting up 50+ year old fabric. I'm just not. But there are people making flour sack towels to sell via ebay and etsy and Williams Sonoma carries/carried them at some point recently, so someone's got to be making and selling this fabric somewhere... I just can't seem to find it. Maybe it's called something else in the fabric trade nowadays, since not many/any companies put their flour in fabric sacks anymore?
