ten dollar challenge

Last weekend, I went to a fabric raw in Nippori. It was really windy and super cold. I got off at the wrong station, and ended up walking to the fabric raw for about 30 mins instead of taking subway or cab, bad idea! On top of that, I realized I only had 1000yen (10 bucks) in my wallet once I got there. It was too cold out side to walk to a bank, and the fabric stores there don't accept credit card.

So, I decided to challenge myself and buy as much fabric as I can with my 1000 yen. In retrospect, it wasn't a bad idea, because I always end up buying too much, or spending too much money. When I left Philly I had two big plastic bags full of unused fabrics that I had to give away.

I bought fabrics above with 10 bucks: from top left, clockwise:
1. green polyester fabric - it's such a fun fabric! The pattern on it has a bird and small cat all over the place. 2 meter = 200 yen
2. pale pink jersey fabric, 2 meter = 200 yen
3. gray and black stripes jersey, 2 meter = 200 yen
4. ethnic print polyester fabric, 2 meter = 200 yen
5. white lining fabric, 2 meter = 200 yen

--------------------------------------------------
Total= 1000 yen (about 10 dollars)

I'm going to come up with 5 different outfit with these fabric and post it here! I'll see what I can do with 10 bucks;)
