Yesterday I did a shop tour of Neal’s Vacuum and Sewing Center in Muscatine, Iowa. Today I’m showing off what I bought.
I did collect a few more fabrics for the mystery quilt. I was happy to find these.
I bought some minky and had this elephant in mind when I bought it. I picked up the elephant at a craft show and want to make more of them for baby shower gifts.
I didn’t have the elephant with and didn’t realize the original had bumps in the fabric. UGH. I still might look for some of that…we’ll see.
The elephant ears have “tags”. So cute!! See?
I hope to get to JoAnn’s and get some ribbon. Then I’ll get more serious about making some. I want to make five or so on the same day and be done with making them.
Then there was my chicken fabric.
Kelli said she things it should be a quilt backing. Not a bad idea. I thought about pillowcases…also no a bad idea as long as one of them is for me!!! I thought about fussy cutting some of the chickens out but they are so close together. Any other suggestions. I love the colors and truly am happy to have it in my stash. I am so hoping I cut into it one though!!!
There was one green batik in the bunch too. That was just an addition to the stash….no purpose for it yet!
The shop was great…We had a good time there!!
