    I have to admit, if I have enough fabric to do this - I have enough to consider it a stash. Whoo Hooo!!! I find I tend to buy 3 yards at a time. Either Walmart - and low priced anyway, or Joannes with a 50% off coupon. I have one by my office and go there at least twice a week :)

    I got a few of the bolt thingies (do they have a name?) from Joannes yesterday and just used cardboard for the rest today. Cleaned out the closet yesterday and now if I ever finish a real project, I just might get this room turned into my sewing room!

    Fabric all nice and tidy

    Your next stop should be Plattsburgh, NY to do mine. Now is time to mess it up again.

    That's a cool idea. Did you just ask if you could have some?

    I did just ask. I wanted my husband to make some for me and when we "stopped" at Joannes, he had me ask. I was a little reluctant - but they were very nice and said they normally just throw them away. I got about 6 or 7 of them.

    As it turned out I didn't want to wait for him, so I got the utility knife and went to town :-D

    No, the ones I got from Joannes are used as is. I cut down cardboard boxes we had in the basement to make most of what I had. The Joanne ones are much nicer on the left. Mine were much flatter :)
