Boring But Necessary

Today I hit the sale at Joann’s and here’s my haul:

I picked up two Vogue patterns: 2907 – the Alice + Olivia pants and 8269, a fabric type box (to hold my mother in law’s mother’s day gifts), and a slew of thread. Three of the spools are glow in the dark – I can’t wait to put this into my embroidery machine and do something with them. I also got white woolly nylon. I’m putting this thread to good use when I make up Jalie 2568 – the camisole & panties pattern.
I also swung by Needle Nook Fabrics – I got some swimwear elastic, stripe jersey, and a great Tommy Hilfiger swimsuit material. I also broke down and purchased the 5 lb. bag of lycra remnants off of ebay. I’m going to be a swimsuit making fool soon!

    I went there today quickly, too! I got Vouge 2784 –but couldn’t find the shirt pattern I wanted! Ugh! I had it written down, but forgot my paper by the computer, and couldn’t find it in the pattern book! Ugh! We also have that hatbox–my daughter keeps her hair bows and things in it! So cute! Have fun with the swimsuit making!

    Hello, I am thinking about purchasing that same pattern! I was wondering if you had made it yet and how they turned out? Thanks, Angie
