Fabric for the home

I found out that the Hancock Fabric's on Midlothian Turnpike had more of the now discontinued Laurie Smith Collection on sale. (Thank you Helen!) So of course, I had to buy the missing pieces.

I bought enough of these two on the left to make the bolster(s) for the sofa. I'm not so sure about the Denyse Schmidt now because it is such a small-scale print. I didn't realize until I got the dark green print home that it was the outdoor weight and not the upholstery weight.

So, I think I will use it for the door draft stoppers instead, which is what Not Martha did with the orange print. Yesterday, I also bought some aquarium stones to weigh them down.

So the choice is now between the chartreuse and the print for the bolsters on the purple couch.

For some reason in this picture, the couch is true-to-life color but not the fabrics. See pic at top for real color representation of the bolster fabrics. Of course, there is also the possibility of using them back to back for versatility.

I also picked up 1 1/2 yards of this great tablecloth vinyl to make my sewing machine cover. I just became impatient waiting to find just the right print in oilcloth.

Okay, so no more fabric for a while. But the sale was so good that I bought all of this, a Vintage Vogue dress pattern on sale, and enough fabric for quite a few holiday gifts for under $25 dollars!
