So, in my search for my home decor fabric for the next bag in the Amy Butler "Style Stitches" challenge, I have realized that my lack of knowledge about fabric types has caused me to make a great error. I thought I was purchasing fabric of "home decor weight," as is often described on many sites. Instead, I bought several yards of lightweight voile. It's gorgeous fabric, but definitely not going to work in the totebag.
So, my search is on again. I need to figure out what to do with this fabric now! I'll need to read more carefully next time. This is the difficulty with buying fabric online.
