We really REALLY love ourselves some jersey... it just has so much potential in any form. I NEVER buy it at the fabric store though, I go to the dollar store and pick up every irregular tee that they have in the hugest sizes {sometimes I get nearly a yard of fabric for just a dollar!} or you could just steal one right out of your husbands closet.... ;) That's free, ya know!
