Goodies from the Remnant Bin


When I walked in the store the other day, something caught my eye in the remnant bins. You know...the ones right in front full of little twill-wrapped squares of fabric goodness? That are 15-20% off?

Remnant Bins

Yep, those. I kept pulling out some amazing treasures.

This grey linen is so soft; with the extra width, there's plenty here for a skirt. And I just loved Denyse Schmidt's voiles for Greenfield Hill. Wouldn't Colette Pattern's new blouse, Jasmine, be lovely in it?!

I bought some of Jay McCarroll's Habitat already and continue to be enamored with this pixelated print. There's almost 2 yards here!

Or this home dec weight mod fruit Alexander Henry?

Hey--another Denyse Schmidt voile. I love the Art Deco inspired design.

And a Anna Maria Horner voile from her line, Innocent Crush.

And more--bamboo blend knit, usable bits of interfacing, shot cottons, & wools! You should see for yourself. I couldn't resist; these came home with me.

Meredith's Remnant Bin Treasures

This floral Joel Dewberry is gone now, but there are still several prints from that collection here and they are gorgeous! And although black was not one of my Fall Palette Challenge colors, it does look great with everything (rationalizing). This J Crew Black Cotton Seersucker will be a great pencil skirt! I'm thinking Naughty Secretary Skirt from the book, Sew Everything Workshop. I was so inspired, I went ahead and picked up the printed bias and invisible zipper necessary to get right to work on it.
