25 cents.

Why did I end up with 40 random old sewing patterns in my Joann's cart?

a) I've had big plans to make sewing pattern tissue
pom-poms when I could find enough patterns for the right price.

b) Thank you, 25 cent clearance bin.





I got several 10x15 inchers out of one pattern...
$10 for over 100 pom-poms.
They'll be put to very good use this summer!

I saw a ton of old patterns at the GW but just passed them up. What a great idea this is I love it! I might have to make a trip on back and pick them up. Thanks for the idea!
