I shop for cheap affordable fabric in order to make my wearable muslins this is something I do all the time i’ll go to a big box store like Walmart Target and i will find some clearance bed sheets that i can use for project if I need a large amount of fabric but i don’t want to spend a lot of money on it i got this flat sheet from walmart for about five dollars this is a cotton-poly blend and recently i picked up this sheet set from target take a look at my shopping trip we’ve needed to the promised land shout color catchers is great for prewashing fabric is there a little beat-up solution

it work my little Cody we have officially reached the Valentine’s Day waste land and you know i have to look at this stuff works all the way in the back and I’m not joking for a second I thought I said sweatshops but it was sweet shop this it was like somebody totally trash courage it or like they were off I don’t know and didn’t take it is this stuff because after Valentine’s Days yes the clearing holiday sections forget looks like and for the life of me I cannot figure out why this is Valentine’s Day related or why anyone would need a pencil figuring if I do something specific hopefully that didn’t start your life but that’s actually not your only option you can actually also go to thrift stores or like the goodwill salvation army’s and try to find second hand bed sheets there or anything you can use curtain you can use any large piece of fabric that will work for your project the other option you have is to use what you have in your house maybe of old clothes and that would actually fit the pattern pieces on them or maybe of old bed sheets that you were going to throw away any help there are so many ways you can get ahold of fabric to practice on without spending any money or by just putting a little bit of money like this sheet set here this would actually make a very where the muslin which is what i plan to do i’m actually going to make the Sew House Seven Tea house dress out of it so stay tuned because this will become a dress hopefully soon one other no don’t forget to pre-wash these fabrics this she has actually already been pre-washed and this one obviously needs to go in the laundry if you don’t we watch the fabrics and you make a government out of them they will get distorted when you do water them so whenever you’re making garments and you do plan to watch them make sure to pre-wash your fabrics otherwise you’ll learn a very tough lesson but first i’m actually gonna get something to drink we’ll try out this fancy like Kroy water today is not product placement I’m just thirsty and this is in my fridge so we’re just going to pop this open alright see if I can make that trash can alright sorry my throat my throat my
