    A Whole big bag of mostly Vintage fabric!!! Oh my goodness i couldnt believe my eyes when i saw it then looked at the price and it was only $7.99!! There is actually a good amount of each not just scraps...there was also a dress(no buttons)and a bag with cut outs in it already now just to figure out what the previous owners intentions were or to make it my own :)

    the dress...not sure what to do with this...
