I am planning to make a Spring/Fall jacket out of the wool. It would pair nicely with my Angelic Pretty Classic Melody JSK.
I don't have any plans on how I'd use the striped espresso fabric yet, but I felt like I had to order it for some reason. Suggestions are welcome!

This is the first time I've ordered assorted fabric bundles (I'm tempted to just call them lucky packs) so I was quite nervous about what I'd get. I've ordered two 10-yard bundles at $15 each. I'm pleasantly surprised at the assortment, though! The 1 1/2~3-yard cuts are the perfect amount for garments.

I'm not sure what the top left white fabric is, but it is labeled "silk+(unreadable scribble)". It is quite structured with knobby (I don't even know if that makes any sense) texture.
I wonder what I can make with the black x white striped stretchy fabric. I'm assuming that it's lycra, but my newbie assumptions cannot be trusted.
The 2 stacks of finely striped fabric are one of the two duplicates in the 2 fabric assortment bundles that I've purchased. They are not labeled, but they feel somewhat stretchy. The contrast in the stripes are rather dizzying, so I doubt that I will sew an entire dress out of just this fabric. It might be a good thing to use in moderate quantities in a garment, though.
The patterned green silk cotton feels amazing to the touch. I think it can make a pretty drapey dress/skirt. It's easily my favorite of the bundle. It makes me think of this Victorian Maiden British Check skirt:

I don't know what the moss-green fabric on the right column is, but it feels very soft and creamy. I have offered it to my green-loving friend for her Spring project.
The 2 stacks of dark gray fabric in the bottom row are labeled "worsted wool". According to the internets, it seems like a very versatile fabric that is good for vests, pleated skirts and suits. It is also very wrinkle-resistant. It seems like something that is dry-clean only. I wonder if it's alright to hand wash this fabric with Woolite...
I am very pleased with my purchase and I can't wait to use them in my projects! Did you buy any fun fabrics during the Christmas/New Year's sale period? Do share!
On a side note, this paisley cotton/silk they have on sale now is beautiful! I'll try to ignore it for now, though.. :"(
