Day 5: Nap time was virtually non-existent on Friday, so nothing sewn but several patterns downloaded, pieced and cut out – MADE’s Basic Kid Pants, the toddler swing tank from True Bias, Lil Blue Boo’s Sienna Dress and Made by Rae’s Flashback Skinny Tee.
I also ventured out with my fabric-loving parents in tow to M & L Fabrics Discount Store in Anaheim, which I happened upon awhile back via this helpful post by This Mama Makes Stuff. The view upon entering is quite impressive:
The back room has an enormous selection of flat folds, including a wall of knits that was heavenly.
One side of the store also has a HUGE section of flat folds, mostly wovens but some also some home dec, all at around $3/yard. And when I say $3/yard, I’m talking Michael Miller, Alexander Henry and the like all seriously discounted.
My mom and I both went a little nuts in this section and finally had to call it quits to allow enough time for cutting and to get back to pick up the girls from preschool. My final haul: lots of woven cotton, a respectable stack of knits and a fun little Olivia panel (we’re just a bit Olivia-obsessed around here lately).
