    Ready for college

    Over the past couple of days, my daughter and I have been working on university clothes, since she will be off to college before we know it. She doesn't like embroidering on her clothes, so I told her to go buy some clothes that she likes and I would do some appliqueing. She looked through my fabric stash, that I am putting on comic book boards, and she found the zebra that really ended up looking good on the black pant suit. She will definitely have some one of a kind shirts and hoodies. She will be attending the University of Central Missouri, UCM.

    Better be careful ... those are just too cool! Her new college friends are all going to want some and you're going to be in the business of making them (LOL).

    Very nice! My two girls wore jeans, tees and hoodies, and pj pants, everyday for four years while in college. LOL. Their clothing was the cheapest expense for college.
    Got fabric?

    Yes, I agree. She purchased these t-shirts and hoodies for less than $5 each so it does make it a cheap wardrobe. We couldn't find a UCM shirt in the bookstore for less that $26. I thought that was crazy.

    Very clever
    We would worry less about what others think of us if we realized how seldom they do.
