Don't look behind the curtain!

I think I went a bit overboard today…


See, JoAnn’s was having a sale today. This week most of the stuff they are selling is reduced. And all of the calicos? 1/2 off! So I needed some fabric for curtains and such for the baby’s room, plus some notions, and I had a bunch of coupons, etc, etc.

For the baby set, I picked out the following patterns:


Won’t they go well? The room will be the color green of the leaves in the fabric. Some of the brown fabrics will be used to make the sheets and such.

Not only on clearance, but reduced clearance, was this neutral bamboo/cotton blend. I think I can make a skirt or something out of this!


I figured I could make clothes for me out of these as well.

Plus these corduroy prints will make great baby overalls!


And I got these to make baby clothes as well!


And I knew before I got home that I probably already had this pattern, but I had gotten it anyway. Sure enough, when I checked, it was one of the ones I had gotten last year.


No big deal, because I’m going to give it to someone who wants it! So if you are interested, leave a comment on this post by Saturday 1/17, midnight EST, and I will draw names next week. If you want details, you can check here.

There, I feel so much better sharing with all of you now!

  1. Okay, I LOVE LOVE LOVE the fabric you picked for the baby set. It’s fun and cute while still being sophisticated. I think I’ve told you my story about not wanting cartoony stuff for my kids when they were babies. Plus, I always think it’s cool when you can pick something unique and make it (or have it made) yourself rather than being bound to what’s on the shelf at the store. SO SO cute!

    I can’t wait to see those overalls. I don’t know what it is about babies and overalls, but they are ALWAYS a winning combination.

    So exciting!


  2. The fabric is gorgeous! Don’t you love sales.
    I’d love to be entered in your contest for the baby clothes pattern. We’re hoping to start a family in the next couple of years so I’ve already started making things for the hope chest 🙂
