What is it?

If you can guess what this is, I'll send you a little goodie!

I'll be heading down to the basement late tonight with Jason when he returns home from seeing "Coraline" with friend Ashley. Jeff and I stayed home and watched "Religulous" (liked it, although we thought it dragged a bit after the visit to "Holy Land Adventure."

Midnight class in Dyeing 101...maybe we'll be dunking what's in the photo.

Go ahead, give it a try -

WE HAVE A WINNER!!! Gabriela of Threadheadsanonymous guessed right...it is waffle muslin that we carry at Jo-Ann's (you can find it with the other muslins). I purchased a yard of this to see how it would take procion dyes. After I pre-washed it, all the little waffles disappeared as the weave tightened up. As soon as I put some color into it, I'll post the results...I'm very curious.

Gabriela...send me your address ~

Hi, I was unsuccessful just emailing you...so here it goes...It looks like a method of weaving that they sue in old chair seats, usually dine in hemp or cotton thread. I would say this is the underside...
It is beautiful whatever it is!

Woven it is, and natural. It's sold by the yard, 100% cotton.

Thanks...try again, okay?

It sort of looks like outdoor floor mat.

Here's another hint: you can find it at Jo-Ann Fabrics...and...you're looking at an extreme closeup shot!

I looked around my sewing area and the only thing that I have that comes close to all of your hints is a waffle knit fabric used to make receiving blankets or for my skiing underwear.The weave was slightly different. You've got me really curious what is in your picture. Great fun, thanks.

Getting closer, but it's not a knit...

LOL...I think I know now....
Is it a waffle textured fabric ?

Threadhead said...

It's cotton muslin waffle fabric?

COOL, cool!I just remembered you worked at Joann's....I do rushing and taping of old chairs and it really looked like a seat at first from the underside!
I saw this at Joann's before and I don't know what you would use it for???I am so excited to see what you do with it!
Cool!
