Part 2 of my Joann's Shopping Trip ---Fabric Haul

Part 2
Joann Fabrics Shopping Trip

If you haven't read Part 1 of my Joann Fabrics shopping trip, please do!! I had so much fun in the store last week. I had a whole shopping list of what I was looking for and I normally don't.  I like to walk in and let inspiration flow, but I was on a mission that day!!

All the fabric I bought was cut for 2 yards.  I always but 2 yards.  One, to be on the safe side if I need more. Two, so I have scraps to make my memory quilt later on down the line.

The white cotton material at the top was bought to make a pair of white leggings.  I made a pair of black ones using a Leggings YouTube Tutorial from The Crafty Gemini and I was instantly fascinated with how fast and easy it was to make my first pair of leggings.

So...because I wanted to make a few more COMFORTABLE scrub tops for work I decided to stick with the Joann's Easy Care and Wash Fabric.  I also bought the fabric when it was on sale.  It normally runs for $12.99 a yard, but I bought it on sale for $7.79 a yard. I also always get matching Bias Tape and thread.

I didn't realize that my pics have a shadow of me standing in front.  I hope the links to the website do a little better justice!!

I bought 2 yards of a specialty cotton eyelet fabric with a lavender lining to make me a little summer dress and 2 yards. Joann's did not have the eyelet material I bought listed online to give you a closer view. I also bought 2 yards of Chicago Bulls fleece to make my daughter a pair of pajama bottoms.

Overall, my shopping trip went well and I saved well over $400 if you add in the patterns bought in Part 1 for $1.00

Pictures of all the tops I made will be posted soon.

Until Next Time!!  


I am in no way affiliated with Joann Fabric store or corporation.  I just love to shop there!!

DIY -- Hello Kitty Scrub Top -- OOTD

DIY - Hello Kitty Scrub Top What I Wore Today
 Fabric from Joann Fabrics I'm not sure if you can buy this particular print online, but I did see it in a few of their retail stores. 
I used Wrights Extra Wide Double Fold Bias Tape accent the pockets and around the top.
 If you haven't read my About Me page yet, I state that I work full-time in the medical field.  I don't have to wear scrubs all the time, but when I want to be comfortable it's my go to option!!  I was tired of seeing the same scrub tops I was wearing that day on other co-workers in the hospital and smiling at each other because we didn't know what else to say.

I felt like I was in People Magazine on the "Who Wore It Better" page.

So I decided to start making my own tops!!  This is the 2nd scrub top that I have ever made.  The first one I made ended up being a complete bust (My Failure) and I never took a pic of it.  I definitely learned for my mistakes (My Triumph) and came out with what I c…

Scrub - A - Dub Sunday!! DIY - Scrub Tops

DIY - Scrub Sunday!!

I buckled down and add four more scrub tops to my work wardrobe.  I did this really for two reasons.
1) I like how easy and fast it is for me at this moment, very calming and non-stressful sewing!
2) I enjoy the compliments I get from my co-worker for having original scrub tops!

Fabric Haul 2

My son decided that he wanted to draw all over my pocket template.

It seemed easier for me to just cut all the fabric out and just sew everything at once.

The only thing that was time consuming on these scrubs was changing the thread to match the color of the bias tape being used.

The finished products!! So happy!! Can't wait to wear them.

DIY - Burda Style Pattern 7065

 DIY - Burda Style Pattern B7065 View A

I have to admit.  I was so nervous to start this project.  Everything always looks great on the pattern envelope.  When you finally get the guts to start and sometimes get to the finished product, you look at it like WTH!!  Then it either gets seam ripped apart, scraped, put on a hanger in the back of your closet or balled up on the floor in the back of your closet.

This is 2 yards of fabric purchased fromVogue Fabrics from Chicago, IL. This company was one of the vendors at the Original Sewing and Quilting Expo I attended this past April.  The fabric is part of theGalleria Knit Collection.

NOT THIS TIME!!  This is the first time that I have started, followed through and finished an actual printed pattern bought from a store.  I am very happy with how it came out. 

It was great to only have to use TWO pieces to construct this top.

I used washers from my local hardware store as pattern weights.  They are crochetednow.

 I always use my Ideal Seam G…
