The basketball picture is all fleece. The bright blue one is rosebud minky (I think that's what they call this) soft but has a pattern to it. I dont have micro-fleece in there at all though

Re: March UYS Game - CHATTER Thread

I would be up for a yard of the pink checkered fleece and the sage-y green fleece (maybe for a pair of jammie pants for ds2- I didn't have enough to make him a pair and he is rather sad)...and a little bit of the blue minky?

BTW- what do you need? I'd love to trade you for some of that knit, DD would love it for summer PJs!
I agree it looks like a Batik. Batiks are hand-dyed/wax dyed cottons. They are used in quilting and are typically more expensive than other quilting cotton. They tend to be brightly colored and very popular for clothing in Africa. They make great hippy shirts and summer sun dresses (broomstick style... not sure the real term. But you wash it and wrap it around a broomstick to dry so it comes out wrinkly ). Batiks have a wonderful soft drape for clothing.

Any ideas for the fabric all the way on the left? I like the look and feel, just no idea what to do with it.

It's a synthetic. I'd say 1980's from the colors. It would make a great moo moo nursing night gown. Sorry I don't have any really good suggestions for
it.
There are plenty of websites that can tell you how to figure out what a fabric is by burn testing it.

That's crazy! I have never heard of burn testing! I did think it would make nice pjs. It's most definitely pretty old, was hiding in my mothers stash for who knows how long lol

Re: March UYS Game - CHATTER Thread

I have no suggestions...I am still pretty new, and have no idea what most fabrics still are honestly. I feel like such a fabric newb and really, really wish there was someone around here that would awkwardly walk around a fabric shop with me and feel all the fabric

Re: March UYS Game - CHATTER Thread

I updated the game thread with the bonus themes for the month- I know the last week is really long, but it is also Passover and Easter, so a busy week for families

here they are:

Week 1- 3/1 to 3/8 UFO & Upcycling Week - Clear out the clutter by completing some UFOs and upcycling! +5 bonus points for the first UFO or upcycling project you complete this week. +1 for each additional UFO or upcycle you complete. +1 more bonus point if you show a before photo of your UFO and your pre-upcycled items

Week 2- 3/9 to 3/15 March Holidays - St. Patrick's Day, Easter, Passover & the official start of spring are all this month! This week receive 5 bonus points for the first item made that is for one of these holidays! It can be something that someone is going to wear for the celebration or something decorative. In celebration of the start of Spring, anything with flowers counts! One bonus point for additional items after the first "spring holiday" item is completed.

Week 3- 3/16 to 3/22 Something for the littles - +5 for the first item made for someone under the age of 12. +1 for every additional item made for one of the young ones!

Week 4- 3/23 to 3/31 Out like a LAMB! Anything soft, fluffy or wool, +5 for the first item, +1 for each additional item

Since I made wool longies, do I get to count Diaper related extra points for those?

(I don't really use them as covers. )

If I lived near you, I would totally go on a touch and feel field trip to a craft store! **Most bolts of fabric have the fiber content written on the bolts, so you can always hide in the clearance section and feel/read.
