When I decided I might be interested in sewing I went online and ordered 2 yards of Heather Ross fabric and 1 of Alexander Henry. Then I went thrifting for mad practice scraps. I certainly didn't want to mess-up on the good stuff. Now that I am a master pro-professional bag maker, I may have to buy me some more good stuff. I mean what kind of seamstress? would I be if I never got new fancy material to use, right? I don't have any fabric stores near by me so I 'm gonna have to go online and see what's what. I know Amy Butler has some goodies I like. I've had her stuff bookmarked for awhile. It is gonna hurt this cheapskate to spend a chunk of change on some nice stuff. Then I'll be more worried about making mistakes on it. I have a hard time cutting up my cheap thrifted sheets (above photo) as it is. I want to start my second bag but I don't have much in the way of coordinating fabrics. The problem with only buying what is available at a thrifty store I guess.
