I ordered the smaller Mystery Bundle from FabricMart. I got a pile of knits (1-1 1/2 yds). They feel "cottony" and not like jersey and have 2 way stretch. The aqua feels thinner/lighter than the others.
.Knits

This is sort of thick and almost feels felted. There is 1 1/2 yards of it.
Brown

This is slightly transparent when held up to the light, a little scratchy, and is somewhat flowy, not like chiffon or charmeuse or anything, but not stiff at all.
Blue


And I have NO clue what this is, but there is only 1/2 yard of it so...

??


I also got 1 1/4 yard of lining material (acetate?) and 1 1/2 yards of flannel

Your final mystery fabric looks like the Tweed-like silk suiting. I suggest you look around their site as you may identify the other fabrics.

Sometimes the simplest solutions, we overlook. Thank you for that suggestion!

The knits could be cotton interlock, and the brown looks like wool.

I'm not sure yet! It's 1 1/4 yard so I don't know what I could do with it besides a skirt??

The melton would work well if you have any interest in trying out needle felting. Melton is very receptive to needle felting, it could be used for small home dec projects or a casual purse. It could also be used for smaller winter accessories, like a hat or mittens.

Oooh. Mittens would be good, considering I live in the tundra and love mittens :)

Thanks Nikki!
