I am quite proud of myself. I finished a project!!! I made myself a maxi skirt.
I just washed it and realized that sadly I did not pre wash my fabric so my skirt shrunk :(. But it still wears fine it’s just no longer the perfect length it was before.
I must admit a few things.
1) My Blake just moved out of my bedroom 2 weeks ago. He is 16 months old.
2) I never actually decorated his room.
Now some people would say who cares? No big deal! Yet, I am a crafty girl at heart and had all kinds of plans for son’s room but never moved on a one. So now that he sleeps in his room I want to give it a makeover. So I was looking for some tutorials on Pinterest to create my own little touches for his room. I found a great tutorial over at domestic adventure. It is pretty and easy all at the same time. Yay!
domestic adventure: Crib Skirt Tutorial
One of my first projects I am going to work on is making myself a new crop tee. I have one I got from Nordstrom’s that swings and sits just right. I bought some remnant fabric in an African print and plan to make myself a second top and a headband to match :-).
Here is the original top.
and here is the African print fabric that I have already started shaping into a new top.
I am really excited because I love the fabric. However, my pocketbook may currently decide for me that this top needs to be held for selling. (More on the upcoming store site later) Until then I will finish it out and see how it goes.
