Using another great tutorial from Vegbee, http://indietutes.blogspot.com/2009/03/pt-1-button-down-shirts-to-circle-skirt.html , I've completed my first big multi-day project.



I liked doing this skirt, and I learned things so I will be able to do better next time around.  I didn't even notice stray threads until I saw these photos!



It's really not as lopsided as it looks, I swear, it's just the way she's standing




E says it's "pwee" (pretty) so I guess that's a thumbs up.  She seems to think every morning she's going to wake up with new clothes now.  What am I setting myself up for?!

The total cost of this project was free, thankfully my husband had shirts that didn't fit him.  There's a ton more photos on my blog (fair warning!) http://chimpsgomoo.wordpress.com/2009/09/17/mens-workshirts-into-toddler-swing-skirt/  including mid-project photos.  Thanks for looking!
