Ok so back in the fall of 2012. I was in TJMaxx, looking for some cute tops for my daughter’s. Which was a bold move on my part because I was shopping without them being present. Which majority of the time this is a no no. All mom’s of tweens and teen know EXCATLY what I mean…lol.
Well I saw this one top in particular that looked like something my youngest would really like. Turns out she LOVED this knit striped top with a heart and love written on it. For $19.99
So of course I felt like such a proud mother for two reason…….she liked it, she really liked it AND…..I did not have to make a trip to return anything.
She loves the top so much that she wears it every chance she gets Then it dawned on me to copy the pattern and make her a short sleeve version.
So I headed to Hancock Fabric’s because they were having a great sale.
So there on the clearance table I find a great Jersey Knit with chocolate brown and cream stripes and “GLITTER”.
I only needed 1 yard of fabric…..Total cost $5.25…….and it only took about 40 minutes from cut to finish and that includes interruptions….lol.
