I didn't get the joining of the ends right, but one skill at a time, right??
On a bit more fun note, I raided my mom's fabric stash (thanks mom!) and got a lot of really great fabrics that I have all sorts of ideas for. The one I am going to work with first is this one that will become a skirt.
I got an A-line skirt pattern that I am going to use. Then, feeling inspired by the $.99 Butterick pattern sale at JoAnn, I went to a discount fabric store in town and found two awesome fabrics that I had previously drooled over on-line for only $2.98 a yard. One is a Michael Miller Ironworks pattern and the other is a Robert Kaufman Mod pattern. I think they'll both be skirts too. I found that I like to wear a skirt in the summer because I don't like shorts and they are cooler than pants. Anyway, these are the fabrics.
Once I actually get one or more skirt made, I'll post it here - don't hold your breath though! Okay, it's your turn! Have you been completely uncrafty like me this week?
