We have a store in the small town I work in that sells fabric, foam, sewing notions and more. They also have a table with remnants that I enjoy looking through. There are often one of a kind or unusual pieces of fabric and are $3.49 a yard. My only other choice for fabric is at Walmart. I do buy a lot of fabric at Walmart, but they have the same fabric over and over, it seems to me.
I went to the remnant store yesterday on my lunch break. This was after I had already been to the grocery store, so there wasn't much time! I grabbed these two pieces:
I thought this color would be cute for a pocketbook. I think it will go with most of my outfits, or at least it won't clash too much. I usually either wear brown pants or black pants with a matching top.
The picture doesn't really show the true colors. There is a slight sheen to the fabric.
All of the clothespin bags in my Etsy shop have been sold, so I've got to get busy restocking it! I found some more of this cute laundry themed fabric, so I grabbed it. The checked fabric is for the lining and I already had that in my stash.
These are some clothespin bags I have made in the past from this same fabric:
The bell peppers have been coming off faster than I can use them. So last night I made stuffed peppers, which uses up quite a few. Here they are before going into the oven. I just blanched the peppers for about 4 minutes and then stuffed them with my basic meatloaf mixture. I prefer to cook rice for a side dish instead of putting the rice into the stuffed peppers. I put 1/4 cup of water in the bottom of the baking dish and baked them for about 30 minutes at 350 degrees.
