Loophole

I went through the kids clothes the other day and made a list of what everyone needed for the summer. Much to my surprise there was only one thing on the list. Shorts for Jack. Two pairs just will not due. I went right to Etsy and ordered some Japanese fabrics from Fabricworm that I have been drooling over.

They are the perfect weight for shorts.
The one with the deer and the flowers is a bit too feminine for him, but I am sure I can find another use for it.

I made sure to remind my husband that this purchase does not fall under my crafting budget. It fall under the kids clothing budget.
"Oh, I see you found a loophole," he said.



Um yes, I believe I did.

Are loopholes not the best thing ever? I am doing a no shopping year this year - I know, I am crazy. So far so good - three months of no shopping... however, I am off to Las Vegas next month and shopping is on the list of allowable pass times because well, I am on holidays, it's Vegas and I did save up for it..ahem.
