Yardage for Your Creations


Remember old unused patterns can be found by searching Google-Etsy-Ebay or the pattern company itself by Pattern number and name of Vendor- or search a style.  Most times they will ship immediately and you get in a couple of days.  When GStreet has a sale as now the Summer Sale everything is 25% off including the patterns-just not the 2.97 room or the silk at 7.97.

Well, when you ask I tell you to wrap yourself in the fabric and you can tell if you have enough, BUT.....  Here are some yardages from my pattern stash. No facing, uses strip of fabric like a bias turn under.
