    Not sure where to put this post. Depending on where you're at, Hancocks Fabrics is having their "Clean Sweep" sale on their fabrics. Last year the sale ran all the way after Memorial Day. You can snag all sorts of fabric for $1 a yd on up. I've already found some great buys on flannel for making...

    This lady brought over some fabric for me to make 6 curtain panels for her kitchen. There was not enough fabric to use to make all that she wanted. So I measured what I had and told her that I could only make 4 panels instead of 6. With that, the 4 would actually be to short in width to match...

    2 years ago, our Walmart had a huge table stacked high with $1 a yd fabric..then they raised the price to 1.50 a I can hardly find any that price at all..its all 3.00 & up. Also the other fabric stores are rarely having clearance sales/spring cleaning sales on their fabric...

    If you use vinegar in the rinse cycle of your washer but miss the smell of fabric softener pour 1/2 cup or 1 cup of liquid fabric softener into your gallon jug of vinegar and you'll still have some of the smell. A bottle of fabric softener will last a long time just using 1/2 cup per gallon of...

    I've been contemplating giving fabric bread bags and/or sandwich wrappers a try for a while now. I did some further research tonight and found a couple patterns I liked, so I got those ready. I thought I'd ask if anyone has used these and how they've worked out before I jumped in with both...
  9. Make It Yourself
    Does anyone make their own fabric stiffener? I am crocheting hearts and need to use some but I don't want to buy any if I can make my own cheaper. I found a recipe for white glue and the same amount of water or a little less added. I was given 8 bottles of white Elmers Glue (not the washable...

    On November 2, 2009, I opened a 30oz bottle of Purex softener, bought from the Dollar Tree. There's 2 of us, about 5/6 loads a week. I used about 1 tsp per load, never actually measured. That dollar bottle lasted me till 3/8/10 & I rinsed out the bottle for the last couple of loads. I've started...

    Everytime I go to Walmart I ask, any news, are we going to lose our fabric? Yesterday, she said that Walmart got so many complaints from one area they put the fabric back into the store. The area had no other fabric stores. So, there is hope for our store!! I know it'll still be their bottom...

    I didn't know exactly where to post this but I had my iron on too high to iron my good slacks and the fabric melted onto the iron! So far I've tried vegetable oil, vinegar and baking soda to get it off but to no avail. Anyone have any ideas?! Thanks!

    If you needed a large amount of black fabric for backdrop purposes, where would you buy it online? I thought someone here might know a good source for bulk solid fabric, doesn't need to be heavy fabric.

    I came across this and thought it was a great idea. It costs alot of money for the really pretty scented softeners, and since this recipe calls for Hair Conditioner, you can easily find a scent you'd love. I got a ton of VO5 conditioners (cheap), so I'm gonna give it a shot. here's the link>>...

    No fabric goes to the trash from my sewing room! I make 3 sorts for fabric scraps: 3 inch square, 1 1/2 inch strips, and tiny slivers. The tiny slivers and other misshaped are used to fill up a pillow case, then I make a pillow. And my favorite is the string quilts from the strips. What do...

    Where do you buy fabric online? We only have 2 fabric stores in our town and they both seem pricey. I'm thinking after making my 1st few projects I'd like to try a basic quilt. I've looked on Craigslist and Freecycle and it's a no-go.
