Booty Call

Made you look!!! It really should be called "Looty Haul". I finally received my order from Fabric Mart after >2 weeks. I was getting impatient since I ordered from Fabric.com after I placed the order with Fabric Mart and that came early last week. I even got so worried I emailed them to find out when it shipped, thinking my precious fabric had been hijacked! I was all prepared to talk smack about them, but when I opened the box and saw the generous cuts, I couldn't stay mad. I got in on some of the 3 yards for $5.00 stuff, not expecting too much, but was pleasantly surprised. I had to jet over to Trendy Fabrics for some lining fabric and of course I couldn't waste the 99 cent first order shipping on just $8.00 worth of lining fabric, could I? Now I need to get cutting! First off the table will have to be a denim jumper for my friend Kim. She asked me to duplicate her favorite jumper that is about to die a while back and in my vintage pattern ebay frenzy I scored a pattern that is a dead ringer for her beloved dress. Her birthday is fast approaching, so I want to surprise her with the dress and the custom dog harness bag she requested before everything went south in my life. Next will have to be the green retro flower print, but I haven't decided what to do with it yet. My intentions were the Burda wrap top #116, but they gave me such a generous cut (I ordered 2 yards and it is more like 2 1/2) I am considering a dress. Also I need to prepare for Sewing Sunday with Sara. I picked out a simple yoga pant pattern and an apron pattern to make and plan to put together a little take home project for her to do at home. Maybe a little wristlet purse too...we'll have to see how it goes. Here is a picture of my looty haul:

I also want to say thank you to Brooke...I was reading your blog the other day and saw myself in your blog roll. I feel like I have arrived in blogville!

Ya got me with that title, lol. I heart Fabric Mart - the prices are great, the cuts are generous and the customer service is fantastic. (And I just added you to my blogroll on my blog...since I've been using bloglines I've been a bit lazy about updating my blogroll.)
