Friday Fabric Finds: April 15

This week is a whole bunch of "meh" in the fabric finds department. Despite my efforts thrifting and estate sale digging, I ended up with four fairly uninteresting pieces. However, I am using two of them for next week's creation, so that must count for something!

Despite its wrinkles at the moment, this fabric should make a nice blouse. There isn't much yardage but I do think I could squeeze a sleeveless top out of it.

This is a single pillowcase that is pretty thread-bare and probably won't hold up to much wear. I thought it was a cute 60s/70s print and could imagine making it into a bag of some type.

This is a stretch cotton that really isn't that interesting but works for my creation for next week. You'll just have to wait and see what it turned into.

Finally, the best find was this wool knit with finished selvedges. This was also used for next week's challenge. It's navy (rather than this royal blue color).

Even if these finds aren't that interesting, they only set me back a total of $2. So, I certainly shouldn't complain.
