Next Sunday is Princess' birthday. She will be six years old. This year is requiring a little more creativity to make the money go farther, but I am having fun. My most exciting deal of the weekend is all about sewing. I am making a dress for Princess' birthday. I was able to get everything in the picture for $20.87. That is over 7 yards of fabric a zipper and 4 spools of ribbon. Yay!! I went to JoAnn's armed with coupons and my teacher's rewards card. JoAnn's accepts competitor's coupons, so I printed a 40% off Micheal's coupons to go along with my 40% off JoAnn store coupon and my 15% off teacher rewards card. The lady in front of me was checking out when she found out that her 50% off coupon was only good on fabric. She wasn't getting any fabric, so very kindly and cheerfully turned around and handed it to me. Talk about a blessing. All of this would have cost more over $40. Isn't it fun when we receive these little blessings?!
This next picture is something else I am working on. Can you guess what it is? I will have more pics of the finished items next week.
