Prepping for a Sewing Sunday
I did a bunch of running around today. Got my nails done – they look so purty. Got some groceries because I decided I’m bored with what’s in my cupboards and fridge. I also went to Joann’s where they were having a wonderful sale. Half off so much fun stuff. I picked up some cool fleece to make some doggie beds for my brother who has two black labs. I found some cozy flannel for a secret gift for a friend – I’ll share with you once I’ve made it but since she reads this blog, I can’t post it here. I also found some darling quilting fabric with spoiled little Chihuahuas on it. I plan to make myself a fun apron with that. I will take pictures of the fabric and show you later so please check back.
Joann’s was also having a sale on Simplicity patterns so I picked up these.
I love every view of this top, and I particularly like that it is so close in style to my favorite Target top I got this last summer. Depending on the fabric choices, it’s also a great top for my daughters.
It’s not yet warm enough for that top, so I found some jacket patterns for some fleece I want to use up out of my stash. I had recently bought a warm fleece jacket from Target for $8 and it keeps me so warm on these cold winter days. So I chose these patterns.
I like the blue one smack in the center and I bet it would be cute with a zipper up the front too. I may just try that.
Yes, these are similar to the ones above, but for 99 cents you can’t go wrong.
So tomorrow I plan on sleeping in a bit, turning on the football games on TV, and sewing, sewing, sewing all day long. Well, I may take a break and get a walk in to get a Jamba Juice, but we’ll see. 🙂
Happy Weekend everyone. Stay tuned, I hope to have some – at least one – finished projects to show tomorrow night!
