These pictures don't do the yellow color justice. At all. The yellow is much brighter and lemony than is shows here. And it matches the yellow pieces of sushi so well. I'm very happy with the fabric.
The fabrics are all washed and ironed (yes, I ironed SEVEN YARDS of fabric!) and now carefully draped over the bed in one of my spare rooms. I need to wash/dust the floor well before I can start cutting.
I'm going to be a sweaty project, the cutting. My third floor isn't very well ventilated so it's quite stuffy. Maybe I'll fire up the fans for a bit and let it air out before I begin the cutting.
I'm so happy I washed and ironed it all right out of the shipping box. And relieved that nothing funky happened. I've never pre-washed fabrics before so I was envisioning some great drama in which all the yardage was ruined. Hey, I'm a worrier, it's what I do.
The fabric wasn't super rough to start and washing definitely softened it even more. And I'm hoping it also tightened the weave up a bit so when I go to stuff I won't get frizzies peeking through.
Man, I'm so excited about starting this project.
Oh, and I shared this post here:
