A big pile of fabric and a t-shirt rainbow.
I know this isn't what 'normal' people consider souvenirs, but to me it's just perfect.
It all started with a trip to Rachel's local JoAnn's. I love that store - so big, so clean, so airy - and I really love their remnants bin. 50% off the lowest sale price? What's not to love??? Our
I mean really; how could I pass up postal cancellation fabric???
Then we found that the cotton fabric, the stuff I mainly use for the little girl's dresses, was on sale for 40% off. So we bought a little . . . .
(the pink in the center and the pink/black on the far right are Rach's favorites; 60's paisley is back is style. Kinda scary.)
And who could pass up these greens? So hip, so cheerful, so on sale . . .
We needed a few coordinating fabrics to add color-block trim (also very 'in' right now) to the planned little girl dresses . . . .
and before we knew what hit us, we had a shopping cart crammed full of fabric, including these dragonflies that I Had.To.Have.,
and just a bit of red, white and blue stars to make Addy a patriotic dress for fireworks day.
I think this was all meant to be, too. Remember the orangie plaid we found first off? Perfect match with this tee Rachel found later in the day.With maybe just a touch of the green for accent?
Oh yeah, somebody's going to kindergarten in high style.
