Fabric Buying FRENZY!

I went on a major fabric buying frenzy today!!! My goodness!! I found some GREAT deals and some GREAT remnants. I ended up going to Joann’s AND Hancock’s! LOL I also picked up 6 new patterns!!! YIPPEEE!!!


Here are some of the fabrics I picked up. I can’t show you all of them because I have a couple of surprises planned for friends and they would figure it out just by the fabrics I bought. LOL

But here are the ones I CAN show you. 😉




The zebra print is actually a dark purple.

Isn’t that Day of the Dead fabric cute???? LOL

And the one beside I LOOOOVE. Not sure what I am going to do with it but I got 2 yards! LOL

More cute owls, too!


The top middle is actually a pale yellow… I need to play with the setting on my phone. Not sure why it makes the colors all weird.

I plan on using the baseball and the weird bug stuff for the Bags of Hope and Love.

The monkey fabric is knit!! That’s going to be fun!!!


Here are the patterns I bought –


Simplicity 2154


Simplicity 1942


Simplicity 2947


Simplicity 3588


Simplicity 1925


Simplicity 4647


As you can tell, Joann’s had the Simplicity patterns on sale 5/$5. LOL And if I had had more time I would have gotten more. I can tell you that is the LAST time I take J1 with me. LOL That boy nearly drove me batty while I was trying to shop!


I think I might actually have enough fabric to keep me busy for a little while. I am so proud! I have a fabric stash! LOL
