Pre-cut Rolls of ANIMAL PRINT Nylon Chiffon for Pettiskirt Projects!
I've just died and gone to fabric heaven (again)! My friend Tammi's comment to my previous post about leopard print chiffon inspired me to do a quick google search, and I was delighted to discover that AFC Express has recently added pre-cut rolls of animal print nylon chiffon to their product offerings. This is the site I purchased my turquoise nylon chiffon yardage from, and they definitely didn't have this stuff at that time. They are selling each of these prints in 30 yard rolls in various widths from 2" to 10", perfect for pettiskirt projects of all sizes. Can't you just see a zebra print pettiskirt with a red ribbon sash, or a cheetah print skirt with hot pink? I'm sure I have grown as a person and learned valuable lessons from yesterday's folding and cutting ordeal, but I have a feeling I'm going to be making an animal print skirt the easy way with these pre-cut rolls next time. Maybe I'll make the leopard print skirt in a women's size 6... How embarrassed would Lars be if I wore a twirly princess skirt next time I took him to the grocery store?
Man, I can think of all sorts of uses for these precut rolls of chiffon... They could be used as frill "stripes" going down a sheer drapery panel or bed drape for a funky 'tween girl's bedroom, for instance...
