I've been trying to not buy any material, unless I find a great deal at a thrift store or yard sale. I found this nice navy blue material for $2, it is probably 2-4 yards.
Isn't Tiger just beautiful?
Do not ever buy a rotary cutter like this, I hate it. I bought it last August and while I was trying to cut my material it kept popping back in. Not to mention the blades are so dull it won't even cut cotton anymore.
The only thing I could find to mark my 1/4 inch seam is a very sharp pencil. Since I will be hand stitching it I need to have it marked on the pieces. Make sure you only mark on the wrong side of the fabric because despite what people say, pencil is NOT washable. I have the jumper to prove it.
