UPDATE PHOTOS BELOW-Hello Cuties! I went to Walmart this afternoon and they had some Waverly fabric on clearance, don't ask me why. This piece was 2 3/8 yards at 50 cents a yard, total was $1.19 !!!

So after dinner I made a Coat Hanger Safe. I even used same fabric inside, for the pocket, instead of white sheet like I usually do.
I also got another piece I thought was pretty. I just got ONE yard as I was trying to refrain from buying more fabric. (Have you seen my sewing room?..then you know-lol) So Cuties, if your sewing stash looks nothing like mine, then run check out your Walmart and see if yours are marked down. And if your stash IS like mine then all I can say is Bless Your Heart! Love it!-Toogie

I used all the fabric and cut one more out of a piece I already had like this. (I had cut an extra pocket and already put the zipper on, so I HAD to cut another one.I wasn't ripping the zipper out, nor was I wasting it!)
So now I have 9 of these, 6 pink glove box envelopes, 9 cosmetic or whatever bags, 1 little ith bag so far. I will be making some more black glove box envelopes, as I picked up some more Oly cloth, but not today. I'm calling it quits for today. It's 5 o'clock somewhere, right?-lol-Toogie

This is a great gift! And that price per yard! Makes me think I need a trip to my local Walmart! They are going to love these, toogie! And did you put your name on it? :-D

Yes, I did but it is made to blend in. Look to right at bottom of each.

May I ask where you got your pattern? Wonderful idea.

I drew it up myself, by tracing around the hanger I would be using. If you want my drawing and have a printer to print out, I can email it to you but DONT put your email address here. Send a pm to toogie.

You are so lucky Toogie to get fabric that cheap, it's never cheap here in Australia! Great job as always on these. Love Chris

Thanks Chris, and it is not always this cheap but when it is, I feel I can't pass it up. Looking here at the photos I'm thinking it would have made a nice crossbody bag like the last one I made. The piece of fabric I had from before isn't big enough now, though.

Do you have a friend in Walmart's fabric dept that call you when things go on sale? Great buys!

If I did I would have to buy a shed to put it in!-lol- I think I'll be able to get 8 from this blue piece, so divide 8 into 1.30 (tax)=.16 each and add a zipper-cheap gift that doesn't look cheap. Yes, great buy!!!

Awesome fabrics. The hanger looks like something out of a boutique.

Great Bestsy, hope they think so too!

Wow what a bargain. The Walmart in our town never has fabric the cheap or else I am never there at the right times. Great buy. Hugs. Nan W

I think that's it, you have to be there at the right times, or else at this price, it's gone. They did have some more of the same Waverly fabric in the bin, different patterns/colors but was $2.50 a yard. That was the only difference, the pattern and colors. The type fabric and brand was the same. Go figure......maybe they will reduce it more if it doesn't go soon.

Hmm, I wonder if someone making the price tag forgot to add the 2 to the tag... lucky you whatever the reason!
