A week or so ago I went to JoAnn's to buy a pattern. It wasn't in stock but I can't go to JoAnn's and not look in the remnant bins or the clearance section. I found the softest cotton fabrics on sale for $3 a yard. There is no brand name on the selvedges or the bolts. Both patterns are so soft and lightweight, and heck, cheap, so I had to take some home.
I used the rest of the fabric to make us new pillow cases.
I look forward to giving them a test run tonight!
In fact, Little Miss I Can Do It Too, was watching me too closely this morning as I was trying on my top and pinning where I wanted my straps to be. Later when all was too quiet, I called her name. She proudly came out, proclaiming, "I'm doing pins too!"
Why is it that kids are attracted to every sharp, hot and dangerous thing? Sheesh! Just play with some fabric and scraps. Leave the damn pins, scissors, rotarty cutters, irons and hot glue guns ALONE!
Amazingly, no Dorsey was hurt during the making of these items. Wait. Is that a first?
