Hey there friends ~ today's fashion feature has triple the upcycling power.
You're excited now aren't you? Ready? Here we go:
thriftiness to the power of three!
First: I'd been dreaming up this skirt for awhile now... a simple concept of 'quilting' various layers of lace, eyelet and cotton strips of turquoise,tan and cream.
Second: I had another old tank top I wanted to turn into a casual purse (remember that easy d.i.y?)... and a leftover wooden napkin ring from that other turquoise & wood project as a 'thumb holder' feature on the bag.
Third: the shirt came with shoulder ties and wooden beads = instant bracelet!
Fun times I tell ya.
(Here's a sewing side-note: thanks to my sis-in-law, I just discovered the trick of sewing the zipper face down on the inside of your skirt seam... then use a stitch-ripper and unveil the zipper from the outside... perfectly aligned! Neato.)
All in turquoise and tan... I'm pretty delighted with this week's upcycling adventure!
If you've missed any previous projects ...they're all found here.
Happy week'ending friends.
