    Went to the old $3 a Yard Fabric Store in Lancaster, CA and picked up this remnant. It is upholstry/curtain fabric and made a great tote.
    They are starting to carry cotton quilting fabric for $2.50/ yard. So picked up about 13 yards of that also.

    Ohh, what a pretty tote!! Wish I had a $3 fabric store near me!! We have JoAnn's, Hancock's and some Walmarts that still have fabric. Although we do have Addadi, who sells beautiful cotton fabrics for $4.99/yard, but if you buy 2 yards, you get one yard free!!! He also has a lot of $1.99 and $2.99 fabrics. Yea for him!!!!!

    I really like your tote and the heavier fabric. Looks great. I just made my first one this week. It's a reversible one made out of quilting fabric. I decided after making it, the next one should be heavier material. Drapery fabric is a great idea.

    do you live near lancaster? My FIL grew up there on a farm and my MIL spent much time there at her parent's ranch. It's a very, very, very small community there.

    You must be thinking of another Lancaster. This one is in the Mojave desert NorthEast of Los Angeles. The Lancaster/Palmdale area is quite a large area. It is about 90 miles from me. I live even further out in the desert (Ridgecrest - gateway to Death Valley).

    Our WalMart just "remodeled" and shrank their fabric department to about 1/4 what it was. We have two LQS in town, but the prices there are the usual $8/$9 per yard. So I will be going out of town more often now.
