I went to Spotlight to look for more masculine fabric if they were on special. They have in my Spotlight store (South Morang) a selection of fabrics reduced from $6 a metre and $10 a metre with an extra 30% off at the checkout.
One of the fabrics was reduced to $2 a which made it at $1.40 a metre, I bought the lot, 10 metres of it. Perfect for the laundry bag linings. The rest I bought 2 metres each at $4.20 a metre. Great value.
To give it perspective, Each laundry bag uses 2 metres of fabric with enough left over to make 1 quilt block.
