    I can relate to how you felt with your fabric find I know it made your day. I enjoy the hunt also you just never know what you will find when you go to Goodwill.

    It will be great to use for Valentine's Day bags for my duaghter's class.. Just run a seam up each side and tie a ribbon on them, let her make a little note for each one and put a pencil inside

    I can also use it as wrapping paper instead of using white tissue :) so many uses...

    I've never seen any that is 13" wide.. it makes me wonder what it was originally made for
    My friend and I call it "Good Will" hunting.
    :D

    Several years ago I found one of these same size "spools" of fabric also. Mine is blue and white dot. I think it comes from a garment or bedding type company. I still have it because I have never decided what to do with it. I know I got it at a thrift store or something like that too.

    I am wondering if the 13" fabric could be for valances ? I have also seen some rolls of narrow width fabrics at shops where they make costumes.

    Wonderful find and so cute! Many many possibilities for this fabric I would say.
    Let me say that I don't know how you found such a bargain because if that were in my local GW store, it would have cost at least $15....no doubt. Our local GW store prices things at an unbelievably high price and sometimes even close to retail/new.... I just can't get a bargain there at all and rarely go inside for just that reason.

    I agree - some times things are way over priced, I could buy them new at another store for the same price. I've also seen things super under priced - I felt sorry for the people bring out the merchandise to the floor yesterday. It was a like a farmer delivering the hay to the cow pasture - people were following them and pulling from the buggy.

    Now what are you going to use it for? I'm curious because the 13' width is unusual.
