This is the very last piece of the special buy lycra I had it is only 56 cm I have just listed it to my Congo Cart at the special price of $10.00 normally I would charge $12.00 to $15.00 for printing a half metre but I had a slight misprint on a tiny turtle in one corner easy to cut around and it is enough to make a top or a child's dress as it is 150cm wide. I am planning to make a bulk order of Stella from Crafty Mama's Shop when I have enough $ saved. It is quite a lot dearer than what I paid for the lycra I had and I was wondering if people would be willing to pay $30 a metre If I dyed and printed it? It is what I would have to charge to make it worth my while.
