I couldn't help myself. I bought some fabric last week, even though I've been trying to only use up what I have.
But that's what happens when you have time to kill and decide to "just look" while on an errand at the fabric store to pick up ONLY buttons.
Sometimes, JoAnn's surprises me with their fabric. Lately, I've been very disappointed in their fabric selection. Most of their quilter's cotton is cheap and inferior quality, yet they charge as much for it as the good cottons in the quilt stores. But just when I've given up on finding any decent fabric on the premises, I round a corner and there it is. Something cute. Something adorable. Something that has to come home with me.
This is the fabric that made me break my vow not to buy any more new fabric. It is a buttery, soft corduroy featuring Rapunzel, the character from Disney's popular movie, "Tangled". This just happens to be my little one's favorite movie right now. She has many of the phrases and songs memorized.
She squealed with delight when she saw the fabric. She's been asking everyday for the past week when I was going to make her "Tangled" skirt. Today was the day.
