Ignore my gnarly carpet. Running the vacuum is SO not on my list of Wanna-dos, right now...so I'm playing the denial card to the hilt!
Moving along before the dust bunnies attack, I got the entire 5-yd bolt of black fabric in a special bin for $5. The toile is leftover from another project, and I'll be using it for a valance at the top of the curtains. I still need a red solid thrown in there, as well as some backing material, but I still have to finish my crochet & knitting projects before I tackle this one. For now I shall bask in the glow of $1 a yard fabric....gnarly carpet or not!
