I'm going to need a lot of patience and plenty of luck. I am making myself my first outfit. I have decided I am going to be Merida from Brave for Halloween, which for me means I have 3 1/2 weeks to have it completely done and ready to wear. With the 60% off coupons from Joann's, the simply silky fabric for the costume cost me just under $25 and now I just need to be able to sew and cut it. Crossing fingers !



this dress minus the head cover.

I spent way too much time in Joann's today too using my 60% off coupon! Good luck, the silky fabric can be a pain to work with, just use lots of pins and take your time and you will be fine. I'm sure it will look great when you finish!

Thank you, PrincessMickey!

I have that 60% off coupon for Joann's, on my phone, and the paper one, and wouldn't you know that every dang piece of fabric I wanted this week was already on sale? I hate it when that happens.

Happens to me all the time. I wanted to use costume satin or casa collection but both were on sale. I found the Simply silky as I was giving up and it wasn't on sale !! yay !! It saved me a lot of money !

Your welcome! That always happens to me too, then I end up buying more fabric than I need just so I can use my coupon.

I just got an email newsletter from one of my local fabric stores and it had a picture of a new fabric they just got in. It wouldn't let me copy the picture here so I found it on another site.

Mr. Potato Head fabric!! I don't really have a need for it but I am oh so tempted to go buy some, I really want some. I think this officially means I am a member of FHA Fabric Hoarders Annonomys

Awesome!

I've got a hair cut tomorrow near another Joann's, so I'm going to take a gander over there and see if there's some fabric I can find that's not on sale.

That happens to me all the time. This week, I wanted to buy something from the new Doodles line with my 60% off coupon. But when I got to the register, they said that the fabric was already on sale and I couldn't use my coupon. There hadn't been any signs or anything but it was on sale for like 20% off. I was quite frustrated because the fabric cost more than I had wanted to spend on it.

That is so cute! That would make a great Toy Story dress or outfit.

It is so bothersome when they don't have their signage right! That has happened to me more than once, so the way I combat it...probably to the chagrin of those behind me...is by having whoever is cutting my fabric check to see if it is on sale. With the handheld devices, they can tell if it is on sale before they even cut it for you.

At my Joann near me they always verify the price before cutting. And say whether it is on sale. Even when I have my duo of destruction running amok near me or screaming or otherwise creating a scene. (Fabric store is not a toddler favorite, for sure.) I think maybe they had some backlash, because when they say "This is on sale." they always seem hesitant like enough people say then forget it.

I'm certain this ha been asked before but I'm going to ask again

Where do you get your plain tee-shirts? Do you have a preference for girls vs boys vs adults?
