I hate to admit this but, I
hoard collect fabric. I find a yard or two and bring it home. Sometimes it sits folded in a box for a year and sometimes I use it right away. Recently my stash of fabric has come in handy in Seattle with the lack of fashion fabric stores!
A few weeks ago I went to the Beppa button sale. Not knowing what to expect, I was pleasantly surprised when I found a TON of fabric. The owners of Beppa are "retired" but use the space to make their creations and open it up 4 times a year for a giant sale. I had a ton of fun and can't wait for the next one. (Who knows when that will be. They don't post it on their website, but send it out via postcards.)
Here's a few of my fabric purchases. The colorful patterned one that was $3 was embroidered. How do you even start to make something like that? I think I may make it into a makeup bag... but in typical Sarah form I'm afraid to cut it. It's truly one of a kind.
