Craft Haul

The JoAnn Fabric by my house is going out of business, and they're having a sale of epic proportions all month long! Despite the fact I'm supposed to be downsizing and preparing to move, I couldn't pass on the opportunity to expand my (already enormous) craft stash, and I'm planning to make one more sweep this weekend before their doors close for good.

I picked up a ton of fabric, including a few that were normally $17-25 a yard for $10 or less per bolt. I have no idea what I'm going to do with 10 yards of this lovely woodland print fabric, but I guess I'm going to find out.

As Z and I are house hunting, we're set on finding a place that has enough space for him to set up a music studio and for me to have a sewing area. I grabbed this yellow fabric to reupholster a sweet chair (which I've yet to find) for my sewing table. 

I also snagged this set of fat quarters to make some new hammocks and other goodies for the rats!

I'm going to use this sheer floral fabric to make a new robe, and that green and grey leopard print knit is going to become a cardigan. As for the sewing-themed burlap? I'm going to use that to make some sort of overlay for my bulletin board. I think. 

These three fabrics looked like they'd make sweet circle skirts!

All patterns, regardless of brand or original price were $1.99, so naturally I had to stock up. I can't wait to bust some of my Nana's vintage fabrics out of storage and make some new dresses!

This tape measure was way too cute to pass on.

I've always wanted one of these magnetic sewing organizers for my pins and needles, and I couldn't resist the chance to score one for only $2!

I'm making a bunch of satin sleep masks to sell in my sister's online shop, so I picked up a ton of ribbon and trim at 25 cents or less per yard.

They had some pretty rad scrap booking stuff priced at 75% off, so I picked up this cool alarm clock thing and a box that looks like a book. I'm going to use the box to organize my button collection. I have no idea what to do with the clock.

Before all of my liquidation discounts were applied, my total was nearly $400. After discounts? I ended up spending just over $100. When I go back this weekend, I'm going to do another sweep of the fabric section, pick up some more craft paints and hopefully pick up some yarn to stash away for the winter!
