Hello everyone! It’s a new month, and that means new supplies! I’m breaking the supply trip article into two parts, because I plan on buying some fabric online this month, and when it arrives, I want to be able to share what I bought with you! As for these supplies, I can’t wait to show you what I took home. These were all purchased at Michaels. Here goes!
Usually when I go shopping for supplies, I look around the store and let the options give me inspiration. But when I purchased this velcro, I bought it with a use in mind for a project I’m working on. Each package of velcro cost $3.49.
2. Chains for Jewelry
I’m a sucker for beautiful chains, and when I saw this chain (right after grabbing the velcro, which is positioned next to the jewelry supply aisle. The temptation!) I knew I had to buy it. This chain cost me a pretty penny, but I feel like it was worth it. It was $12.99.
While I was there, I decided to grab two more chains, this one with a lovely crystal detail for $7.99, and a chain with tiny leaves (it’s a little hard to see unfortunately in the photograph) for $5.99.
The first chain says it’s a bracelet, but given the many pieces that comes with this chain, I see myself taking them apart to create a continuous strand. The second chain is 9.5 inches, so I’ll definitely need to combine it with another chain, or use it as a bracelet. And finally, the chain with the leaves is 24 inches in length.
3. No Sew Fusible Tape
I’ve posted a few sewing tutorials (and more are coming!) but I thought it might be nice to show a project or two that you can complete without needing to use your sewing machine. So I bought some stitch witchery tape. The package comes with 20 yards of tape for $3.29.
4. Lace and Chain Pendant
I saw this pendant while I was browsing for chains, and I thought it was too lovely to pass up. It cost me $6.99.
5. Extra Jewelry Accessories
When making a bracelet recently, I realized I was missing some lobster claws and jump rings I would need to complete the project, so I made sure not to pass them up while I was shopping. The crimp/lobster claw packages were $2.99 each, and the jump rings package of 100 pieces $5.99. The remaining pack of accessories cost me $3.99.
So for this trip, I went a teeny tiny bit over budget (I usually walk into Michaels hoping to keep it to $50 or less, which rarely actually happens). But I’m happy to have some new toys to play with, and to be able to complete some more projects to show you.
Happy crafting everyone!
