I really don't need to be adding to my stash, but how could I pass this up?  A local shop that specializes in christening dresses is closing.  Everything in their store is 80% off so I loaded up on laces and trims!  But I did make sure I had a plan for (most) everything I bought.  My son kept on trying to get me to buy some baby blue silk fabric that regularly cost $30, but I resisted cause I really couldn't think what I would use it for.  Normally all of what I got would have cost $90, but I got it for $18!  Now I just have to keep myself from going back and getting more in the next few days.

Wow, that is a great tute!  And you are so generous to share your knowledge.  Thank you.

I've only gotten a few things de-stashed since school got out.  I did finish reconstructing my daughter's yo-yo blanket.  I ended up dropping the feed-dogs on my sewing machine, and doing a wide zigzag to tack the yo-yos to the new backing.  I tacked each yo-yo in six spots around the edges or where they butted up to each other.  Clear as mud?  Well she's pleased and it seems to be holding together.

I also finally finished off the box of trousers that's been haunting me.  Since I used all the blues in the blankets and the rug before, I was left with browns, blacks, and greens.  They were mostly cut into 3" strips already, so I did the rest that way.  I just made more blankets backed with double-knit.  This time I left the backing an inch wider all the way around, folded it to the front, and stitched it down.  I ended up with a twin-sized blanket, and two lap blankets that will probably go in the car trunk for emergencies.  They all pretty much look the same.

Of course, the next day my son brought me two pairs or trousers with holes in the knees and asked me to turn them into cut-offs.  I refuse to make more blankets.  We don't need more, and I don't know that many people who would be happy to get something made out of some one else's worn out clothing.  Argh.

That's gonna' look so great!  And I think I have this same pattern.  I keep on pulling it out to daydream, so I'm excited to see your finished costume!

K_Starr -- so cute.  Cupcake and poppet are both on my list.

CraftyLM -- I've been wanting to ask what you actually put in your pocket-wall-hangy-thing.  Has it been useful since you made it, or just a nice idea?  I've got pockets, but can't imagine what I'd use one for.

Sweet!  Those turned out so cute.  And yes, I would save those if I got my hands on them.  I wonder if the same method would work for buttons?  I also wonder why there would be plastic flowers on a cupcake instead of frosting flowers.
