Pants or a Blanket?

At the last minute today after taking care of some out of town errands I swung back by the house to pick up my mom and the Sweet Pea to head to Joanns for their big weekend sale. I've been looking for some orange camo fabric (which I still haven't found) to make a vest for the Hubby's birthday and thought they might have some.

I was a little worried about taking the kiddo on a late trip to the fabric store and packed lots of snacks and toys to ward off a tantrum. Luckily it was great. She was in such a happy mood and it was the best time. We found lots of great fabric but don't tell the Hubby. I said I wasn't going to buy anymore fabric until I used up some of my stash, oops. It wasn't my fault though.

I spied this lovely fleece and was contemplating it when the Sweet Pea reached out and exclaimed "ooohhh I love it!" with a huge smile on her face. What's a mama to do? You guessed it, we snatched it up. She held it in her lap the entire time we were shopping and just petted it. It was so much fun and I couldn't keep from laughing at her enthusiasm for fabric shopping. She's addicted already.

I bought it with the idea of making it into some pajama pants for the two of us until we got home and it was thrown on the couch. Now I think it might make a better blanket. I'm afraid the print may be too big for pants. What do you think?

Know what I think? I was just looking at this fabric and suddenly it looked really familiar. Look what I found on the shelf in my craft room...

So I really must like this print since I now have it twice. Maybe I do need to stop buying fabric for a while.

In case you were wondering this fabric is Expressions by M'Liss Rae Hawley. Isn't it great?


  1. oh! i must be blind! i had no idea why you had posted a picture of a crochet yoyo blanket! lolol that's the fabric!!! how pretty!!!!

  2. That's funny. It does kind of look like a yo-yo blanket. I've been wanting to make one, maybe that's why I like this fabric so much.
