For Sale

Spring Cleaning Sale

I did some spring cleaning this past weekend, especially organizing my sewing stuff. Below are the fabric, patterns, and finished garments that are taking up space in my stash-filled closet and that I would love to pass on to somebody who could use them. Prices don’t include shipping – I’ll have to figure that out, depending on how much each package weighs. If you want something here, please leave a comment with the item(s) you want. Since WP requires an e-mail address to leave a comment (your e-mail address is not published!) I’ll send you an e-mail after you comment with a list of items that you would like to order and your total with estimated shipping. At this time, I’m only able to take checks or cash. Sorry, but I’m old school like that. 😉

    1. So sorry for the shoddy quality of the photo! It actually did look fine on my tiny camera screen and then when I uploaded it to the computer, no such luck. Anyways, the calico is kind of like a muted white (ivory) and dark chocolate brown. I think it would work great for a girl’s dress if the little girl you have in mind can be clothed with 2.75 yards. 😉 You could also do some really interesting things with trim (like blue or scarlet), and bias sleeves would be really cool.

      Would you like a sample of this sent to you before you commit, or shall I send you an e-mail with estimated shipping?
