Blue Jasmine

Blue Jasmine

I bought the fabric at a local crafting thrift shop called The Legacy. I hope that everyone has access to a shop like this. It is jam packed with all kinds of sewing and crafting tidbits, including fabric by the pound, and is ran by a volunteer crew of mostly grannies, some knowledgable some not.
