I'm still learning how to sew and this is only the 2nd piece of clothing I've made.
I refashioned a pair of my daughters jeans into a skirt.
The jeans still fit around the waist but were starting to become high waters
i even got the jeans at goodwill for $2!
I've had this fabric for over 3 years now. i knew when i bought it that it was going to be a skirt.
I used this tutorial as an outline of what to do
I cut the legs of the jeans about 1 inch under the zipper
Cut a 7 inch wide stretch of fabric ( i used the whole length of my fabric so I'd only have one seam)
i created pleats instead of ruffling
i folded each pleat as went and sewed it down. it was pretty easy since my fabric had a patterns and lines i could use for reference.
i still need to hem the bottom but it turned out cute.
ill post pics of the kiddo wearing it later( shes was sleeping as i made it)
I created a tiered tray from dollar store items.
inspired by these sites
Used a pizza pan, a serving tray, a pie pan and 2 candle sticks
glued together using e6000
still needs 'legs' and will be painted
I bought my husband a zen garden from the dollar store a while back.
we both enjoyed it but it just wasn't large enough.
used 3 8x10 award framed from the dollar store.
Even the soapstone frog is from the dollar store
Turned out pretty good and my husband liked it. i plan on re-attempting this eventually
( this time i wont rush the project)
I should heed the wisdom and peace of Buddha...
I love my Buddha!
PS I'm even re-purposing the old zen box!
first i need to learn how to cut glass!
but that's another post all-together
