Patsy Aiken fabric

Yesterday I decided to check out a sale at the Patsy Aiken outlet in Raleigh. They make high-end children's clothes, and were having a sale of up to 75% off. Anyone who watches Extreme Makeover, Home Edition may have seen last season that they donated clothes for the children of the Riggins family in Raleigh, as well as to the ministry they work with. Since I am visiting the grandkids this weekend, I had to check out the sale. I got Avery a bathing suit and shirt with alligators, since he is crazy about them. Lily got a bubble sun suit with polka dot ribbon ties on the shoulders. I also bought her some blue and white checked seersucker shorts. I took them home and added two rows of white rickrack and a line of floral stitching using pastel variegated thread. Now they look girly! They had a wall of shelves with two-yard cuts of the same fabric that the outfits are made of. And only four dollars a yard! Also had other cuts available, bags of matching trims, collars, etc. I purchased some pink flowered and some pink check fabric for making quilts for our guild's Quilts for Kids program. I am not sure the content of the fabric, but it is either combed cotton or a soft knit.

Well, off to get ready for my trip to South Carolina!
