Shorts for Charity, New Fabric and a Rainbow

I have 3 pairs of shorts for charity all finished and one pair for c2. :) YAY!! I will be finishing up 1 more pair for charity and one more pair for c2 tonight! :)

I took a trip to Hancock's today since I was in the area... This is what I picked up for $20! ;)

I got 3 yards of this red jacquard! :) I used the yellow for the Retro Butterick  '56 5603.

I got a 1/2 yard of this AWESOME Steelers cotton to make a purse for FOOTBALL SEASON!! YAY!! Yes, I am a HUGE football fan! LOL And there was a purse that I was longing for last season. Now I can make my own and not pay $65! LOL

I <3 toile!! So when I saw this on sale I knew I had to grab a yard to make a purse or tote. :) Love yellow and blue together!

I found this in the remnants bin. It looked like just the thing to make d another bag. I got just over 1 1/2 yards for $2!

So that's the haul I got for $20. Not too shabby! ;)

And here is a picture of a rainbow we saw from our front yard this evening.

After I get the shorts finished up I am going to start cutting out the patter for this -


McCall's M6362. I think I'm still leaning toward madras.

Then after that I am planning to take on this -


Here is the fabric that I plan to use -

With a eyelet for the bolero! :) What do you think???
