Do you remember me telling that we went hunting in the charity shops for shirts to use in patchwork . Here they are all washed .
They have now been cut to just pieces of fabric . The collars , cuffs and seams have gone to the re,cycling . The buttons into the white button jar . A lovely stash . I need more orange and browns .I love doing quilts with shirt fabric .
Today we have been to another of our haunts for curtain lining remnants . Deep in the country where only those with a nose for sniffing bargains go . This is my stash of curtain lining . It,s 100% cotton . I wash it on 90 deg, hot wash then it doesn,t shrink anymore . It works well to use as cream in patchwork and after the hot wash is lovely and soft . of course we went for lunch after , it,s gruelling work with you head in bins of fabric .
