A change of plans

Ok, I'll admit it, I'm lazy (and busy!). I knew I would be too tired to go to the fabric store where I intially bought all my fabric after work, so I decided to go to the giant fabric depot near my work on my lunch break. I'm both amazed and intimidated whenever I go there because it's turned away in an industrial park, a bit dimly lit and I always get lost when I go upstairs (It's big and made up of different rooms, including a room full of buttons), but I remembered where the flannelette was (corner of the second room) and so got quickly in and out in about ten minutes (a record for me in a fabric store). So in the end, I just went and bought new fabric and I'm not sure what to do with the old fabric, as spray and wash could not save it. But now my niece will have a nightie with bed-time bears on it instead. I still have a lot of work ahead though, but at least it's something I enjoy!

Its wonderful you find a fabric store that huge. Here where I live we have expensive quilt shops around but no more JoAnn's fabrics. There is a little to choose from at Wal-mart..but very slim pick's. Great that you found this wonderful fabric.

Heehee a room filled with buttons sounds really cool!
Anyway, I think you're full of awesome to be able to make clothes, and for your nieces even! Perhaps you could try applique-ing to salvage the stained one? Because it looks really good from the previous post and it would be such a shame to just throw it away like that ^^
