I know this type of fabric has an official name, but it just won't come to me at the moment.

Anyway, as I was waiting to be served my very boring blackout curtain lining, I spied this little beauty. All I need now is a project for it.  :D

I made a cover for my food mixer out of that fabric!  Looking back at the order, Terry's Fabrics just called it 'Baa Baa Curtain fabric'!

(Just editing to add that mine isn't PVC-backed - that would be a strange thing to describe as curtain fabric!)

I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

This was £12 metre, so guess it's American Cloth, then.

They did have other patterns of the same material at £17 metre. I bought it last year when I'm sure it was £12.

I'm about 3 years out of date with my pricing Fajita.. that's when the fabric shop I worked in closed
