$3.00 and 2 hours of time....

In Walmart last week I saw a bin of these blankets on clearance for $3.oo. Microfleece. Microfleece sells for about $12.00 a yard at the fabric store. This blanket was a yard and a half long and nice and wide. I thought "Ah ha! Why can't I use this to sew with?"
I made the purchase and got busy sewing.
In 2 hours I had made for $3.00.....
very soft, warm lounge pants for Mark,
a warm and fuzzy hat for Mark,
a warm and fuzzy hat for Grace, (you can never have too many hats in these artic temperatures we have been having lately)
and with the very last scrape, I made Kimmy's doll a new blanket by simply finishing off the cut edges.
Not bad for $3.00 and 2 hours of work!
