BOM testing and new fabrics

Over a week ago we went to the Zoo, and it just HAPPENS to be near a Hobby Lobby, and for once we left the zoo kind of early so we weren’t totally smashed, SO I figured WHY not stop by Hobby Lobby and check things out??

And this is what I acquired :)

Some of these were 2 and $3 a yard (on the left) and Owl and matching striped was $5 a yard.

I’m thinking a skirt for me with ELASTIC waist for ME, as I can’t fit my clothes anymore and have ONE pair of maternity shorts, the rest of the maternity clothes is long…..

The owl fabrics I want to make a dress for Sonja- Surprise, surprise ;)

The kiddos played Row Row Row your boat on a roll of batting I had out to cut batting for my completed tops- so I’m starting to catch up on those too!
