I got several sewing projects done recently. One for me and two for my daughter.
This is the Little Ruffle Skirt from Carolina Fair Designs. I found the fabric in the remenat bin at the fabric store and I just happened to have a green t-shirt in the scrap bin that matched perfectly for the ruffle. Yeah repurposing!
I also repurposed a pair of my daugher's jeans with a big hole in the knee. I wanted to make a pair of jean shorts, but didn't want the ragged edge, so I trimed the legs with strips of fabric. The strips are wrapped to the inside with the edges turned under and top stitched.
Finally, I made a draw string skirt for myself. I followed the basic instructions found here.
I come from a crafty family and have been doing crafts all my life. On a family vacation when I was 15, we stumbled on a rubber stamping store and my love of papercrafts was born! I spent eight years as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, but now I just share my love of all things crafty through my blog and classes.
