And if not exactly what you were looking for, still darn close! I may have mentioned that I was going to add some linen to my stash to use in some upcoming sewing projects. Since I have to pass the thrift store on my way to the fabric store, I thought it couldn't hurt to stop and see if just maybe they had some linen that I could practice with. While I am interested mostly in the natural colored linen, as that's what all of those fun Zakka projects seem to use, I was open to any color I might find.
I think I hit the jackpot. At least my sister, who sews clothes and loves linen, thinks I hit the jackpot. I did not find any natural linen, but I did find this lovely piece of raspberry colored linen. 6 yards actually. And for only...wait for it...$3.99!! Is that crazy or what? At the fabric store they are selling their linen for $16.99/yd. This is what my find looks like, although probably prettier in person.
Since I'm occasionally nice, I'm only keeping 1yd to play with and giving my sister the remaining 5yds. She already has the pattern picked out and could be cutting into it right now...
Other fabric finds at the thrift store today, this lovely red/white pinstripe. I believe it's vintage, but there isn't anything on the selvedge to identify it.
