While I was gone my mailman brought the following obsession inducing catalogs to my mailbox:
Mini Boden (my absolute favorite... the one that makes me the most weak)
All of which went directly into the recycle bin because I just can't deal with the temptation. But then the backpacks from Garnet Hill caught my eye... Halley needs one for school, and I am not getting a princess one, no matter how much she pleads. So I fished Garnet Hill out but didn't stop looking when I passed the backpack page. While I still am seconds away from ordering this butterfly yummyness, I did not order this for my currently unicorn-obsessed toddler.Instead, I made it myself. For $1.97, thank you very much, Target clearance rack t-shirts, which I can never resist.
And while I had the sewing machine, ironing board and fabric out and needed to prolong my resisting of cleaning the house and folding laundry I made this little butterfly from this pattern.
So thank you mailman, you gave me reasons to get done what I shouldn't, and gave me great ideas to make myself feel better about the temptation you brought into the house.
Off to fetch the Mini Boden catalog out of the bin...
What can I make from there?
