Marie Is a Bad Influence on Me...But I Don't Mind One Bit

She wrote me an email this morning letting me know about the GREAT deal that Fabric.com was having on this cute fabric she (and I) had been drooling over long ago when it first came out and cost a small fortune.  At over $10 a yard, I couldn't afford any more than 1/4 yard and what do you do with that?  Boring.  Well, Fabric.com has it on sale for $2.49 plus since she is an excellent shopper she found a coupon code for 20% off.  I just purchsed these 5 fabrics, plus 6 others, 2 yards per fabric.  That's 22 yards of fabric for under $44.  Less than $2 a yard.  WOOHOO!  You know what I'm most excited about?  BOY FABRIC!!!  What should I make?????

Your welcome! I have endless ideas of things to spend money on! :)

I think a quilt is the obvious suggestion. But, it's so cute I'm thinking something he can wear and get more use out of. Like these lounge pants...

I know you don't have that white fabric, but that's just as well since it'll get dirty very easy.

I think a button shirt would be really cute too!

I just bought the cutest rocket ship embroidery graphic that would look great with those fabrics. If you make something that would go well with embroidery (or if you want to special order one of the "surprise" gifts you know I'll be sending you) send some of that fabric on over!

I really really like how that orange fabric looks with the planet fabric.

Johanna - I just may do that!! I have some of those t-shirts left. You could embroider some rockets on the t-shirt and I could make some pants to go with it. Or...am I thinking too much along the "girl" line??? Yikes!!

Marie - I really like that combo too!!!
