(This is my first project post!)

Okay, back story. (Feel free to skip XD) During the summer, I went to Hawaii with my chorus (Pacific Rim Children's Chorus Festival, if that rings a bell for anyone) and we split up into groups to learn about different eer, Polynesian? cultures, and two of the groups got those giant pieces of fabric that they tied around their waists like skirts (okay, I don't know what they're called, but essentially it's fabric!). Well, anyway, I wasn't in those groups, but I did manage to get one of each from people who didn't want theirs. My friend, whose birthday is coming up, wanted me to make something out of one of the fabrics. So of course...


The whole thing.


The lining, just a plain brown cotton.


Action shot, just to show how big it is. (It passes our school "dress code", the fingertips rule XD)

Oh, and that was all handsewn. And just because I don't want to create a new thread, here's the turtle necklace that's also part of her present.


Wire wrapped sea glass with a turtle charm.


And an action shot.

edit Oh, by the way, for the tote bag, I used this pleated tote tutorial combined with this tutorial for the zipper.

Hand sewn?  Amazing!  Gorgeous print and I'm loving the turtle theme Smiley Was the fabric originally a sarong?

Thanks :] You know, I guess it was, but really, it was just a very large square of fabric XD
