Stashy Saturday

My sister and I have big dreams when it comes to sewing - we're both at beginner level, mostly, but someday! Someday! We will make the most awesome of things :D

So whenever we happen to be at Hobby Lobby or JoAnn's and the patterns are on sale, we grab what we can, almost always costumes.

This time, when I went to Hobby Lobby a few weeks ago, the McCalls patterns were on sale for $1.99, limit 10.  I got 11, because my brother was with me and paid for one :D

Here's the loot:

Had to get two of the uniform to get both sizes - I would have gotten both sizes of the women's patterns if I had enough money.  Some of them have all the sizes, though.  I wish all patterns were like that!

This summer we are hoping to take sewing lessons at a community center that is opening!  So excited!  Maybe we'll get to make some of these lovely complicated things!  We've made some easy patterns before, but like I said - we have big dreams...

Next Saturday's Stashy-Post will have my HAED layaway patterns - I'm getting them paid off this week.  Some I have already shown, but there are more! Also I had bought some last year during my posting hiatus that I have never shown, so next week will be lots of pictures :D


  1. Ooo great stash make me something! Lol jk I love the top right of the first picture. I picture it in black and blue :)

    1. That would be so gorgeous in those colors!

  2. My ex got me a Pfaff sewing machine about 8 or 9 years ago and I never used it so I gave it to my stepdaughter who is having a great time with it. I didn't even know they still made patterns anymore but then again I never really venture into that part of the craft shop unless I need floss and Aida cloth.

  3. How beautiful =) I am very untalented when it comes to sewing, but I would love to see your progress =)

  4. Gorgeous patterns! I wish I could sew! Can't wait to see your HAED stash next post!

  5. Lovely patterns Tama. I look forward to seeing some of them done.


  6. Oh such lovely patterns! Hope you get them sewn up :)
