Now that I have posted all the giveaway winners, I can tell you about my morning at Joann's! Our store was just renovated(and boy, did it need it!) So for three days they are having a great sale. The first fifty people each day receive a $5 gift card. Add in the fact that I had a 50% off one item coupon, and I had a fun morning! I have been seeing all of these great patterns for lunch bags and pool bags that are lined with laminated cotton BUT it is expensive and I wonder how it sews so this was a great opportunity to try it out. The fabric was $13 a yard, but half that price and add in the $5 card so the total cost was $1.50! Who can beat that? And I think it is gorgeous!  I also found a couple cute fabrics to make some small bags that I couldn't resist. Great shopping...I only spent $7.93 and have some really cute stuff to work with!

The fabric on the left is a cute Robert Kaufman print. Who doesn't love cats and sewing! The top right is the laminated cotton and I just love the bird print on the bottom right...Isn't it adorable?


  1. Now that's what I call shopping. I love a bargain and you got some wonderful "stuff."

  2. What a great deal on the laminated cotton!! Have fun!

  3. I love bargains. The bird print is super.
