I like to sometimes drop in at the only fabric store in my area. I'm always amazed that chain stores don't have the same things in different cities. I like the fact that my Hancock Fabric store takes their leftover scraps of fabric, bundles them up, and throws them in a pile on a table, or sometimes in wire baskets (they keep moving them, so "the hunt" never gets old). Sometimes they have nothing to interest me. Whatever I get, it's usually half a yard or less, and it's usually a dollar or less.
I almost always grab the muslins, kona cottons, and canvas. The whites and off-whites appeal to me for possible lettering projects. Most of the time, the bundles aren't marked, so I don't really know what I'm getting. But the smoothness of a particular bundle intrigued me, so I brought it home this week.
When I unrolled the bundle, there was faint printing on the edge that leads me to believe it is drapery lining. I did play around with some lettering on it with acrylic inks.
I also played around in my stencil journal some more. Not totally happy with the stitching on the fabric, but it's a no-pressure journal, after all. So I'm not going to lose sleep over it.
