How many people buy extra yards when they don't need it to finish their project?

I do!

Katia 10-19-2011 08:20 AM

I do too. I am so afraid I won't have enough.

JanetP 10-19-2011 08:21 AM

I do.

I definitely do, you just never know if you will cut something wrong and need more fabric. :)

ditto
or for when the pattern has it planned out nip and tuck for quantities
or for when I decide to make a change to the original pattern, fabric A instead of B etc.
or when I want it to be a little larger!
or ... or ... or ... or ....

Of course, there's a limit as to HOW MUCH extra!

Depends on what pattern/color it is and how much it costs.:)

It depends on how much I like the fabric. But I usually will add a smudge for the mistakes I make cutting it seems all the time.

I'm afraid so

I always add 1/4yd over what a pattern says I need -- more if I like the fabric. If I am simply buying randome fabric I tend to buy enough to make uncut borders.

That said, I have been trying to be good so I only picked up the extra 1/4yd for a piece of Halloween fabric I needed -- now I need more and it is gone. Sigh. :(
