All shopped up and ready to go!

Got out on Monday afternoon for a little shopping with my son. He wanted to go to Best Buy to get some "guy gamer stuff", and thankfully it's right next to the Joann's. With my trusty $25 gift card, I went in to conquer some of that 60%+ off fabric. I came home with all this:

$158 worth of fabric for $40. If you don't count the $25 gift card, I paid $15 total---that's about 10% of the price. Can you say JACKPOT!!

I'm planning on making a few tree skirts and some stockings for my family. If I have any left, I'll make gift bags out of it.

Have you shopped for your fabric yet?
