Ok. So. I bought this fabric at the dollar store. It was already cut into one yard pieces (rather one meter pieces). It’s cream and because the tag was in Japanese, I couldn’t tell what the fabric was.
Went online, found out it’s about 65% polyester and the rest is cotton.
I washed & dried it, but when it was done it came out all really crinkly and really, REALLY stiff, like paper! I couldn’t straighten it out by hand, even the edges curled in. Never experienced this with any kind of polyester.
Now I don’t know what to do with it. I guess I could try some kind of jacket, or something. I dunno.
Any other ideas? It doesn’t have to be clothing.
I actually like the texture, but I just can’t fathom what to do with it. But I don’t need to stay with the texture. Maybe it will iron out (but would that be a bad thing, considering what happened after the hot dryer?)
