crazy skirt girl….

after reading this i felt inspired to share a pic of one of my favorite “tablecloth becomes skirt” adventures.

speaking of tiny happy, i am lusting after these, but alas, they are sold…. check out here other great stuff, here. i made this well over a year ago, but got it out earlier this week when i was looking through some of my pre-preggers clothes. i have to say, i am still way to fat to fit in to any of them but since i accidentlly made this skirt to big way back when, it now fits. there is good and bad in that. this is a cool book about drafting your own patterns and making skirts if anyone is interested….

i made mine using a simple skirt pattern with and elastic waist and just layed it on the table cloth so that the hem would line up with the scallops.

    I LOVE tinyhappy! I made about a buncha bags from her bag tutorial, and then modified it and made another
    buncha. So thanks for reminding me of her; I’m going to peek at that blog next . . .
