OMGOSH!!! Did I hit a GREAT sale at Joann's!!!! Soooo many things 50% off!!! YILES!! I left the house with $50 and I only knew of 2 things that I HAD to get. I needed black broadcloth and white satin ribbon..... LOL I have a PLAN for that! ;)
Here is what I left the store with-
I got 1 yrd of the Star Wars reg. $9.99/yrd, I paid $5.99
I got 3 yrds of the foxes at $3.49/yrd. I can't remember how much the regular price was. :/ But aren't they TOOOOOO cute????
I have NOOOO idea what the first fabric is.... It's soft and thin but it looks like a sweater?? The receipt says STON AST SOLID SLUB MELANGE SW. Anyway, it was regular $20/yrd and I got 2 yrds at $5 a yrd!!!!! This one is MINE!! ALLLLLL MINE!!!! LOL I have plans for that fabric! ;)
The next is black crushed panne, although it's hard to tell from the picture!!! I got 2 yrds at $4.19/yrd!!! I have some silver and purple crushed panne and an idea is slowly forming in my head for all of them. LOL
The first picture is black broadcloth. I paid $1.99/yrd and bought 3 yrds. :) This I have plans for!! The leftover yardage will go for straps and handles for Bags of Hope and Love <3. :)
The second picture is 3 spools of 400 yrd thread and 2 1/4" x 3 yrds of white double face ribbon. The thread was $1 a spool!!! 1 dollar a spool! AND it's Coats and Clark! Oh, you can see the panne MUCH better in that picture! LOL
Soooo, for $50 I got 11 yrds of fabrics, 3 spools of thread and a spool of ribbon. The only thing I paid full price for was the ribbon. LOL
I perused the remnants bin since it was 50% off but nothing really jumped out at me. Boo. I like the remnants bins at Hancock's MUCH better! And they are a lot cheaper there, too.
So, how'd I do???
I FINISHED the McCall's M6553!!! WOOOOOO HOOOO!! I will be wearing it to church in the morning so I will be sure to take some pictures. :) I think it turned out very well and I can't wait to try other color combos! LOL
Tomorrow we have church and then a Birthday party. I am hoping to work some bags in sometime this weekend. I would like to take at least 10 full bags. I have 3 full and the ladies at church took 4 off my hands. I am hoping that there were others made and filled!! But just in case I want to make and fill at least 3 more.
Hopeful Threads has a new project for September! They are making pillowcases and e-reader covers for the military! Sounds like a GREAT idea! I will definitely be making a few to go along!!
I also have some gift projects to do for some friends of mine. They have NO idea. Hee hee hee!! I can't wait!!
I LOOOOOOVE SEWING!!! It makes me feel like I can give back not only to the community but to my friends, as well. It's AWESOME! :)
OHH!! Before I forget!! My High Low dress was in one of AllFreeSewing's Sewing It Up newsletters yesterday!!! WOOO HOOO!!!
