This last weeks challenge on the Sew Weekly was to use a fabric from my stash that was most valuable to me. Turns out after working with this particular fabric, it became my most annoying fabric to use. but I worked it out enough that I am not so annoyed by it anymore. Read on.
I ordered this fabric back in December, when shirting fabric went on sale. I had no idea what shirting fabric was, but I thought the prints were so beautiful, I ended up ordering four different kinds, all with a retro like print. This one is my favorite above all. Now, when they arrived, I was really excited. But to my surprise, the fabric felt like something I had never felt before. I don’t even know if I can describe it properly. It’s light weight, almost a nylon (parachute) feel, but not exactly. Anyways, it’s weird, and it frays, and it doesn’t hem well. Nor does it flow softly, which is what I wanted. No biggie. I can work with this, I’ll figure something out.
