Fat Baggies!

All this time I was running a huge sale and didn't know it!

My Quarter-pounder (no cheese) Fat Baggies were going for 27$ including postage (US only) and just recently I noticed that the little buggers were consistently tipping the scales at the post office at close to a full pound!

The batteries in my own scale died and I was too lazy to figure out how to change them, so I was filling bubblewrap mailers as full as possible and still be able to seal them properly! Bargain Time.

and I still have tubs full of shreds and scraps of hand dyed, mostly vintage fabric - damasks of all grades, gauzy cottons, broadcloth, linens - all natural fibers that have been through the Lawrenceville Frankenstein school of Color Transformation!   These are all vintage which means "tender" and not suitable for use in wash and wear things unless you are into shabby chic, in which case, you'll be thrilled at how these fabrics wear over time.

So what was once a good deal has been revealed to be the bargain of the century.  I've raised the price One measly dollar to cover that postage. ATTENTION international friends...sending this little packet of scraps is hideously expensive!! I just paid 9.00 to get one over the border to Canada!  Email me first so I can get you a shipping cost!!

I haven't yet figured out how to jigger the PP button so you could buy more than one at a time..if that's the case email me and I send an invoice..thanks, Therese

I'm picking from  these two baskets right now. Scraps run from mouse-sized to paperback sized with all manner of strips and shreds in between.

for added entertainment, try ironing these. Some of the damasks become almost iridescent
