You know how you spot fabric,
and before you even get close enough to touch it
you know it's just perfect
and you have to have it?
That's how I was when I saw this.
It was just a remnant of fleece
- 23 inches to be exact -
without a price.
As Dave would say,
(and wouldn't approve of)
I married it
before I knew much it cost.
I looked for the bolt - but never found it.
I was trying to decide just how much I was willing to pay
for this scant 2/3 of a yard
when I brought it to the gal behind the counter,
"Any clue how much this costs?"
"All the fleece remnants back there are $2.99 a yard."
I passed by the fabric,
waiting patiently on my sewing desk,
for three weeks
before I finally got the chance to cut into it.
I'd hoped to be able to get both a top and bottoms out of it,
but I just couldn't quite squeeze that out.
It turns out
I love the surprise of her knees so much
that I'm glad I couldn't pull off pants.
in case you're wondering
