I went fabric shopping again today….
Joann’s had another ‘doorbuster’ sale this morning, so I ventured out early to pick up some different goodies. I loaded up on the art kit sets – perfect for my friend’s children, polyfill stuffing, miscellaneous notions, and very little fabric (I say very little because there were some women there with 2 carts full of cut fleece. I also went to Hobby Lobby where I found the g-ring clamps for my purse, a photo book for the Little Visitor Swap, and some clear glass ornamnets that I plan on decorating for teacher gifts (originally, I was going to do covered notebooks, but Taylor wanted to help craft and I figured this was a bit easier for her to do). Anyway, below is a photo of my fabric purchases from the past two days:
The pleather is difficult to see (it’s on the far right) but the black bandanna skull and crossbone fabric is laying on top of it will become the lining. I thought that it would be fun and unexpected!
My company leaves today, my house is in shambles, the tree and decorations need to be put up, and Taylor has a book report & presentation that is needing attention so it’s unlikely that I’ll get to sew until Monday – and I can’t wait! I did make a pattern for a large gingerbread stuffie today, so I’m all set to make one (or two) up for under the Christmas tree. I have several books that need reviews written, two tops that need completing (not to mention my coat), so be on the lookout for all of these this week!
