Me and my sewing


My pattern and fabric stash! There's more behind that!LOL


Like most sewers I have a fabric stash and a pattern stash.After reading Ms.Adrienne blog asking questions about sewing. I started to think maybe my fabric stash is not to much or my pattern stash.Last summer I put myself on a pattern diet and this summer I am going to do it again.But I don't think I will ever ever ever go on a fabric diet that would be too much for me!LOL! When I buy fabric or patterns I always get it when it is on sale, because I am very cheap person!LOL!A lot of people say you could never have too much when it comes to your craft!LOL!


Walmart fabric finds!!All of it was a 1.50$ a yard!The fabric to the left is all knits isn't just beautiful!LOL!The fabric to the right it mystery fabric.All that from Walmart! I did tell you I was cheap!!LOL!





My dd in a dress from one of the knits I bought from Walmart.
Pattern: McCall's 5615



Pattern: Simplicity 3536I had enough fabric to squeeze out a top for me.This was a easy sew.It has elastic in the should of the top.I liked that about this top.

Well that's it for me! Happy crafting!

I've tried the fabric and pattern diet a few times too. It never work very long for me. lol The dress and top are cute. DD looks like she is enjoying the fruits of her mom's labor.

I love Wal.mart fabrics, but like stillpatrice, as of late their takings have been slim.


Your dd looks so cute in her dress and like the top you made.

I am so with you on the Wal-Mart fabric even though they got rid of their fabric dept. at my Wal-Mart I went a little crazy in Tx/Wal-Mart fabric depts. The dress and top are too cute. I'm going to look for the top pattern. I prefer to say "thrifty" as opposed to cheap.

I love Walmart's fabric section! More and more of them are discontinuing carrying fabric though. I never buy patterns if they aren't on sale either.

Your top and your daughter's dress is so cute! I like Walmart's fabric section too and still check it out whenever I go. I might go today! LOL!!

Those are lovely fabrics from Walmart. I shop there too, sometimes you get nice fabric at a very cheap price. I have bought Bemberg lining for $1.98 and I bought 20 meters.lol.. Your DD dress is so cute on her and love your top as well

Walmart has some wonderful fabric! Sadly enough to say, several Walmarts in my area are getting rid of their fabric & craft sections.

The dress and top are very cute. I have 2 discount fabric stores less than 3 miles from me - yeah... Fabric diet is a must on a yearly basis. I am on one now.

I'm also a big fan of the Walmart fabric section. I just scored fabric from there 2 weeks ago at $1.50 a yard. Your dd looks beautiful in her new dress. I'm digging your new top as well.
