Since I've been overly crafty lately and Husband simply goes into 'Uh-huh', 'oh that's nice', and my favorite 'Mmm' mode with his eyes glued to his cell phone at the mere mention of crafts (I will note that he does tend to be more interested when I say 'free' or 'this didn't cost me anything'). It seemed best to me to share with all of you my good fortune. Will you join me with the oohs and ahhs to spare my poor husband the task?
First the fabrics take a look at that stack:
Want to see the variety? Well, okay since you asked so nicely ;)
|Hmmm, maybe I should make Husband a shirt out of the motorcycle fabric?|
|I really, really, really like that Bible Story Fabric...maybe I'll use it for me.|
Now onto the patterns. First the fanned stack picture:
Finally the close up pictures.
I am so ecstatic. There are 2 girl's swimming suit patterns in these so I won't have to buy one for Elsa dear Plus lots of knitwear patterns. Obviously from the photos you can see that these were the height of 1980's fashion but I think you can trust me not to repeat those color choices and to modify the patterns appropriately.
Also here is a lovely picture of a jar of buttons that I purchased for $2.50! I couldn't believe my good luck. Now to figure out how Greta (my sewing machine) does button holes.
Stay tuned for more escapades in craftiness with yours truly as I do my darndest to whip up a few things for the darling baby boy in our family. I also have a dress that I am currently finishing up for myself...hope to have it done by Sunday.
