I wish I could sew, but I can't. My mom tried to teach me but I seem to have retained only the ability to sew a straight line which would be super helpful if my family and I were two dimensional people.
|Vera Bradley prints - some of them.
It should have, because then I might have been prepared for what I saw. The first shop we entered had about every Vera Bradley fabric available. I pondered buying some to have a skirt made for Megan, but remembered that she has three skirts and that might be capacity for our little girl who hates dressing up. Instead I bought a remnant of some material that said, "Hello, Gina, I scream your name."
|"Hello Gina! Buy me!"
From there we (we being six of us altogether) branched out looking for various things. One friend bought curtain material, another bought enough to make her daughter a jacket and a couple pairs of pants. I saw pink and green camouflage material and decided I could probably find someone to make them into pants for Megan. Total spending so far: about $6 USD.

On our way out we stopped to look at a store full of microfiber fabrics. Across from it was another stall with tons of fleece including a pink cheetah print. I picked up 1.5 meters of that ($3.50 USD) to hopefully make Megan a bathrobe.
I'd like to go back, as we barely scratched the surface of what they had. Megan's in love with the cheetah print, I got lots of fun pictures, and good time with friends, so I'd say today was a win.
