You may remember that last year I was in Hobby Lobby and saw the cutest sample vest that was made from some “hide” looking fabric with a fleecy type underside. I wrote this post about it.
The fabric they had was kind of sparkly and I knew Addie would love it but they were out of it. I called Hobby Lobby in Abilene and they were also out of it. When I went to MO, I ran by Hobby Lobby in Joplin and they were out of it. Every store had the same sample vest hanging so I know why the fabric was all snatched up so quickly.
I ended up buying this fabric to make it.
Then I found this fabric at JoAnn’s, which is machine washable and the first one wasn’t, so I bought it.
Today we were in Hobby Lobby (yes, WE . . I did not get to go shopping by myself). I went to look for buttons for the pink sweaters and as I walked past a row of fabric . . there was the sparkly fleece backed fabric I had wanted so badly last year.
It does have to be dry cleaned but hopefully, as a vest, it won’t get too dirty. Nicole has the stuff to do “dry cleaning” at home. So, I got it! I could not remember the pattern so I looked it up on the blog, got the pattern number. They didn’t have the pattern but I was able to google it and get the fabric requirements.
I would love to get this made for her before I go back but . . that may or may not happen. I was pretty happy to find the fabric.
