I've been shopping...

I haven't been creating much lately. Although I have a lot of stuff cut and ready to sew ~ that will be next week. I have, however, been shopping. That's always fun! I found the cutest flannel for $1.99/yd!! Its so soft and cuddly, but it has some body and strength to it, too. I originally planned to make myself some pj's but after I got it home I feel like its just asking to be a cute little quilt. I haven't decided yet. Maybe it needs to be folded up and put away to "age" and then I'll see what it asks to become.

I also found these gorgeous towels for $2!! That's TWO DOLLARS! I plan to make some 'round the house pants. I love wearing capri's around the house and my current ones are looking like...well, like I love to wear them around the house every day. I thought these might brighten up our cold gray winter we're having.

And then, remember that "mistake" in my fabric order last week? Well, in that same order I had ordered a 1/2 yd of this fabric. I ended up with over 23". Do you think its because they not only can't read orders, but they can't cut straight either? In all fairness, every piece of fabric I ordered came with at least 3 extra inches, and one piece I ordered half a yard and it must have been the end of the bolt because I ended up with a horribly wrinkly piece of fabric that was 42" long!!! So, I guess I can't complain too much about messed up fabrics and strange cutting angles, huh?

Goodness, that is quite an angle, isn't it?

Capris from towels - are they comfy? I've never thought about making any clothing from towels...I do like the colors! Where're you shopping, anyway? :)

once upon a time I had that same rubber duck fabri only on baby blue... I never used it so I passed along to another quilter collecting flannels. ;)

even if you don't use it for PJ bottoms... it could always be the backing of a baby quilt.
