Weekend Work

Happy Monday Peeps!  The weekend was somewhat productive for me.  My parents came to Raleigh on Saturday, and my mom shopped my stash for supplies for Sew South.  I am so excited about this conference and it's only a few weeks away.  We needed to make a fabric store run to get some additional supplies, so we ventured to Hancock's.  We both needed to buy fabric to make the pajama pants we'll be making at Sew South.  I picked out some madras plaid cotton fabric and mom picked out some cute cotton knit.  Well, until she saw the price!  It was $13/yd!  Not on sale!  So she went back and grabbed a bolt of the madras, as it was on sale for $7/yd.  I knew cotton had gotten expensive . . .

I also got some sewing time in.  I made this journal cover for me.  It is from a tutorial by Stitched In Color.  My first one and I had a good time with improvisational piecing.  Loved how the "Sew" scrap ended up in just the right place!

I also made these baby bibs for the baby shower I am going to Sunday.  These turned out so cute!  I was inspired to make these when I saw a $7 appliqué at Joann's.  I knew I could achieve the same look with sewing supplies I had at home.  I'm very pleased with how these turned out!  I've already had requests to make these!  Winner!

The fabric fairy came too!  I ordered a bunch of fabric from Sew Mama Sew as they were having a big ole $6 sale!  Scored some awesomeness!

I'm linking up to Plum & June's Let's Get Acquainted Monday Link-up!  You do too!
