I just learned to 'shirr'. If you dont know what this is, it's this:
I was inspired by this post here about making your own skirt out a man's XL tshirt: (thanks Danni!)
How cute are those skirts?!! After I saw all of them lined up, I immediately went to the thrift store and bought two of the biggest tshirts I could find. When I failed my first attempt ( didnt measure right!), I decided to just cut my skirt out of a sheet I'd bought at Goodwill a while ago, to see if I could get it right. And...ta-da!
Here are a few of my next projects:
Elle's Striped Cardigan
Prudent Baby's Most Flattering Shirt (with Shirring! Hoorah!)
This Beachcomber Dress for Bell
Some of these cute little beauties for some of my favorite little girles
A few strands of this amazing garland for every single room in my house and maybe yours too.
See you later, if I can tear myself away from my sewing machine!
