How did free just cost me $45?

My mother picked these up from the lobby in her apartment complex.

People are always leaving stuff like fabric, books, magazines even canned goods for others to take and make use of. Since she doesn’t sew anymore she gave them to me. There are a few others too, but I have immediate plans for these three.

Of course, I didn’t have everything I needed to make them. So, I made a Mommy Playdate with my friend Mary at Mary Made It Sewing and off to Hobby Lobby we went once the husbands and kids were at school (yes, we are both married to teachers). We had plenty of time to catch up in the car and while we waited for the fabric to get cut and then again at the checkout line. Both were painfully slow, but still not as bad as our local Joann Fabric.

I got what I needed to make these except for the poly beads that I just plain forgot to look for:

And of course I had to peek in the remnant bin and then I wandered over to the clearance aisle while she was getting her fabric cut.

No idea what I am going to make with these.

How could I resist a cute candy cane remnant, shimmer metallic spray paint ($3), Mario Duck Tape ($5) and glass Christmas ornaments ($2.50 a box with one broken in each box)?!

Plus some candy at the counter and those free projects cost me $45!
