This Black Friday, I leisurely got up at 7:30, dawdled around until 9, and arrived at Joann’s at 9:30, AND STILL made out with the fabric I was wanting! Yeah, I know it’s pretty awesome. The only reason is this: I planned only on buying FABRIC. Otherwise I would have been waiting in line at 5:30 am with everyone else. Material is almost a guaranteed thing.
Anyways, here’s what I bought and what I’ll be using them for:
Left to Right, Cotton: 1/8 yd, 1 yd, 1 yd, 1/2 yd, 1 yd, 1/2 yd. Flannel: 1/2 yd, 1 yd. Total with tax: $24.
The first is a honey mustard cotton. It was the only fabric I could find that matched what I remembered of the center block for the round robin, which I have yet to add a border to.
This lovely cutesy cooking print is for an apron. My neighborhood sewing group is having a Christmas party challenge: Anonymously make an apron for people to vote for. There will be some sort of prize. I need to find the right apron pattern.
This novelty print couldn’t be passed up. It’s so cool! For year’s I have been slowly saving up hunting themed fabric for a quilt that has a lion’s head as the center piece. I have a certain hunter in mind for if and when I finish it. 🙂
I fell in love with this print when back in the summer I bought it in pink and made, fittingly, a summer dress. I didn’t even know it existed in different colors until yesterday. I was only buying a half yard of each. The green fabric had a half yard left, end-of-bolt. For Black Friday, Joann’s had end-of-bolt fabric 75% off the sale price, which came down to 63 cents for a half-yard! !!!
I had quite a bit left of the pink fabric from my dress, so I plan to make a pastel quilt out of the fabrics, perhaps as hound’s tooth.
Lastly, I bought this cute flannel print with a color compatible border to make a pillowcase! It’s so cute! My octopus crazed sister liked it immediately when I pointed it out. I personally think of it as a Samson and Sally tribute, and my mother really likes the turtles. Yeah, we just love to verbally dissect things, LOL!
Other than that, on Thursday I hit the early Black Friday sale at Kohls, and I bought two really nice sweaters. (It didn’t conflict with family time; I had Thanksgiving dinner at 1 pm and the sale started at 7 pm).
I’m curious: Did you go shopping the early sales on Thanksgiving?
