patchwork + linen =
I've been admiring the works of other that use linen for a while. It seems to be a popular choice. But, the linen at my Joann's is $14/yard, more than I am usually willing to pay for fabric. Thank goodness for labor day weekend sales and coupons, because after my 40% off, I walked away with 2 yards of dreamy linen for $17. I've been sewing and in love ever since.
I thought headbands would be a safe first project because you don't need to use a lot of fabric. Now I can't stop sewing these. I figured these would be good smaller items for the craft fair, and since I'm loving them so much, they might also appear on etsy. We'll see how long this obsession lasts. ( I already have about 6 more waiting to be sewn downstairs!)
