Confession of a fabric snob....

I am a fabric snob...ok there....I said it!  .....Shops that sell cool, modern, chic fabric....shops like CityCraft in Dallas or Purl Soho in New York.  But sometimes one just has to confess and admit that no matter where you find style..it is still STYLE!....Isn't confession good for the "fabric" of our souls?....so here goes.  


Strolling down the aisle at "Walmarts" (that's what people call the "super giant" in East Texas), I spotted a display of plastic ("oil cloth") Christmas table cloths. So...here is what happened......I mean really it just happened.....




Three $4.88 table cloths  +  a free PurlSoho pattern =




A grocery tote....Perfect for that foodie Christmas gift!....a loaf of french bread, a bottle of your choice of drink, fruit, cheese, .....the list goes on and on....
This tote can be made in an hour....no really...just an hour!  A few suggestions if you decide to try this "Walmart classic".....use a walking foot, stitch length = 4....and use paper clips instead of pins....
And one last thing...thanks for not judging me....Merry! Merry!
