Today I went to Jo Ann’s only to discover that the set I was going to purchase was on sale and I couldn’t use that coupon I wanted to. No worries, though, because Michael’s sells cutting mats and they take competitors coupons. I ended up getting one that is 24" x 18" for $12.50. Somehow at Michael’s, the lady couldn’t figure out the coupon thing and took only $3 off of the marking pencils I bought. I told her about it and she couldn’t figure out how to fix it and someone else came up to fix it for her. Well, they never fixed the 50% off the marking pencils, so I ended up getting 50% off both the pencils and mat. I didn’t even realize it until I got home!
I went back to Jo Ann’s after some other running around because they had rotary cutters (and all related tools) on sale for 30% off and fat quarters for $.96. I also needed some fusible fleece interfacing. I ended up with a rotary cutter for $10 and a ruler for $4.50. It ended up being a little more than the Fiskars set would have been ($27 instead of $22), but I’m very happy with my purchases. I used my other 50% coupon on 2 yards of fusible fleece interfacing, so I had 2 yards for $5.99. That should last me quite a bit.
I was going to make a Loopy Ewe order, but I told myself to wait until after I got the rotary set. Good thing I did, because I spent a little more than I thought I would!
Anyhow, I took some photos of the things I came home with:
This is fabric I purchased at Walmart, on seperate dates. I think they’ll make a great Box Bag, don’t you?
That’s all for now. Perhaps I’ll have more fabric things to show you soon! Tomorrow morning I have a doctor’s appointment and in the evening I’m going to a belated birthday dinner with Crafty Mands. Tomorrow should be good! I’m looking forward to it :o)
