Yesterday afternoon after quilting, Louie and I did a little junkin’. We didn’t find much, but I brought home TWO homemade drapery panels made from regular cotton fabric because I especially liked the fabric on the back.
I threw both panels in the washing machine, and this morning, I removed them from the dryer, unstitched the gathering, cut below the sewing line, unstitched the hem, turned it inside out, and cut the serging off all the way around. This was all the waste I got, and if I worked a little bit harder, I could make this into less waste yet.
I have only taken apart one panel this morning. How much fabric did I get? 3 yards plus a few more inches of EACH fabric x 43”. When I get the other one apart, I will have 6+ yards of each fabric. Total: 12 yards of fabric.
How much? $4. Pretty good, eh?
Have a wonderful Sunday. I’m going to be sewing!
