I’ve been kind of at a loss on things to do since I finished the doll house. At the beginning of the year I made a goal of using up a bunch of my fabric stash. Unfortunately due to prior commitments and being sick, I haven’t even started on this goal, BUT I am seeing light at the end of the tunnel, and over the next few weeks, I’m hoping to turn into a sewing fool. (or just a fool in general LOL!) I have so many things I want to make and so many ideas bouncing around in my head, along with a large stash of Pixie Faire and Simplicity patterns. I also have a lot of polar fleece that I want to make into scarves which I’m debating on what to do with (sell or donate), it’s one of those “sew until it’s all gone” kind of things.
Last night I was poking around the internet, checking out all sorts of different things for ideas. And then I came across this:
Is this not adorable or what?!?!?!?!?!?! I’ve been wanting a good pattern for a tent, and this is exactly what I’ve been looking for, I love the details on it. I ordered it this morning, it’s a brand new pattern and not available in Joann stores just yet. With shipping it came to $8.47, really not too ridiculous, especially considering it’s just what I’d been wanting. Now I can stalk the mailman, I hope it doesn’t take too long to come! I have a couple of pieces of fabric that I think will be nice to use for it, hopefully they are big enough. If not, I guess I’ll have to break my “no more fabric” promise. Oh well!
In case you are curious, the pattern is by McCalls and I found it cheaper to buy it direct from them as opposed to anywhere else thanks to the sale they are running. So excited!!!
You can view the pattern on the McCall’s website here.
