Hello, lovely readers! Yesterday afternoon, my sisters and I took a visit to Joann's, because I wanted to make my self a new outfit for fall.
"A golden knit for the sweater, I think, and a leaf pattern for the skirt." I explained as we entered the store.
"Hey, this looks like my shirt!" Chrissa exclaimed, pointing to a polka-doted fabric.
"It does!" Georgia agreed. "Not exactly, but pretty similar."
"Would you two help me find the fabric?" I asked.
"Sure, sure." Chrissa said, glancing down the aisles.
"How about this?" Georgia suggested, pulling out a sparkly knit.
"Err - I think not. It's rather shiny." I replied.
"I was kidding! Your face was priceless." she laughed.
We roamed down the aisles, getting slightly distracted (which is quite fun to do in Joann's).
"Oh, Elizabeth! You should make me a shirt out of this!" Georgia said excitedly.
"Look - it's even 40% off!" she added. "My birthday is only a couple mouths away!"
"Georgia, don't you think that it's kind of early for that? After all, your birthday's not until February." Chrissa said. "Even Christmas is sooner."
"This would be perfect for a Elsa dress. Wouldn't it be cool if you made your own costume?" Chrissa said, rubbing a icy blue material between her fingers. "You would be a perfect Elsa for Halloween, Elizabeth."
"I don't think I'd like to dress as Elsa." I replied. "Making my own costume does sound fun, however."
"How about making Georgia and I costumes too?"
"Okay, you two have to admit that this would make a awesome cape." Georgia said, dramatically pulling some dark material around her shoulders.
"Yep!" Chrissa agreed.
We wander around, talking about costumes, fabric and (in my case) how there wasn't any suitable fabric for the sweater I wanted to make.
However, I did find a lovely fabric for the skirt, which you can see in the picture. After paying, Mother came to pick us up and we drove home.
Do you making your own things, or buying them?
