Target Steals and Project Teasers

I've got several projects in the offing but since my sewing machine has gone AWOL and I haven't the money to get it repaired right now, I am waiting on my sister's MUCH anticipated visit in another couple weeks to get them done. She has a sewing machine that she got a few years ago for Christmas that is still in the box because she doesn't really use a sewing machine and isn't much of a sewer. BUT she has some sewing she wants me to do and since she never uses it she is going to bring the machine with her for me to get her sewing done and then leave it for me to get my much needed baby sewing done. WAHOO! I just love my sisters. And not just cuz they do me favors. But because they are a-wesome. They keep me going for SURE.

So this post is a little teaser of some things I have all ready to get sewn as well as some steals I found at Target. I love that place. Every time I leave I love it even more. The only time I ever leave there disappointed is when I can't walk in and say "One of everything please. Thank you!"

Clearence sheet that I am going to make a crib skirt. Only $3.96! I couldn't have bought the yards of fabric I needed for that cheap per YARD, let alone all of them.

Vinyl wall art for a little boys room. It's sports sayings and clip art from football, basketball and baseball. Normally $15, I got it for $3.74. We're in an apartment so we can't paint. This will come off easily when we have to move. Excited to get it up on the wall!

Burp rags with cloth diaper backing all set to be sewn with some coordinating ribbon on the edges.

Fabric cut to size for master bedroom curtains. Sky blue with a chocolate brown panel across the bottom.

Excited to get all this stuff done!


  1. Fun Stuff Lissa! It's too bad we can't be closer cause our love for craft and decor is one in the same.

    I need your help! Cute easy Halloween ideas that I can do with some YW. I'm not in YW's and I haven't been searching for stuff like that for a long time. I have one project I'm going to do with them but I wanted one more... something fresh and cute. Got any ideas?


  2. You are so creative, Lissa! I love reading and seeing your projects; they make me want to get back on the creative bandwagon!


  3. love them...and you are already welcome for the sewing machine :)

  4. You're amazing!! Love the ideas and the steals!
