Last time I was at a Jo-Ann craft store, I saw a display of fleece throws in many different patterns. I was not looking for a throw, but luckily this one jumped out at me.
This comes as a kit with a patterned front panel and a solid coordinating color for the back. I loved the pink and white stripes with a solid pink back. The idea is to cut 7 inch strips around the outside of the two pieces and then tie them together to make a fringe. I decided that this pattern was so cute that I’d sew the throw together and not lose any of the pattern (plus it would seem larger).
My kit looked like it had been dropped and had a slightly soiled area (plus a rip in the cardboard packaging), so I was able to negotiate a bargain price of $8.25 for this originally $32.99 kit.
These lovely Christmas cards were purchased at Ross. There are nine in each design. If you check Amazon’s web site under Punch Studio you will find many other beautiful cards, notepads, etc. with teacups or teapots using Victorian ephemera designs.
I can’t believe that I’m not yet finished my Christmas shopping but, on the bright side – I may come across some more lovely bargain tea gifts for me.
