This past weekend I got a Joann flyer in the mail and saw that Simplicity sewing patterns were on sale. Since I am getting ready to start a new job I thought it would be nice to make some skirts and tops to wear to work. I went over to the Simplicity pattern site and scouted out what clothing patterns I wanted and headed on over to Joann Fabric.
I was pretty surprised when I discovered each sewing pattern I wanted was in stock. Yippy for me since this almost never happens. Here is a sample of the patterns I picked up.
Joann Fabric also had the spring editions of the Stitch and SewStylish magazines I wanted.
The Stitch magazine has a couple of really cute kids patterns in it plus a whole lot more.
(Oliver + S Ruffled Halter Top Pattern is a free download.)
The reason I got the SewStylish magazine is because they have a tutorial in it for copying your favorite tshirt. This is so timely since I just dripped curry sauce on my FAVORITE white tshirt. Ruined unless I want to dye it a yellowish-green color. Perhaps not.
Now on to my love/hate relationship with Joann Fabric. Please explain to me why each time I actually think of getting book, or magazine in this case, and have a coupon greater than 40% off that I plan to use, they have a measly 10% off sale on them? Why can't they charge me regular price and allow me to use my 50% coupon? That would have saved me $7.50 off the Stitch magazine! I know, I could have waited until the following week and used a 40% off coupon but I really, really, REALLY wanted to get it today. Who knows, I might get a few hours of free time this weekend from my fairy God mother. It could happen.
