I've been a busy girl!

First up, this adorable shirt:

I combined a shirt from Hot Topic (size small) that I got a few years ago and a baseball tee (size large) I got from Goodwill.
Originally I didn't see the potential of the two shirts together, but after going through my stash of shirts to recon it suddenly hit me!
So I appliqued the I heart animals print to the baseball tee after I re-sized it to fit me. It's now my favorite shirt! Smiley

And in case you're interested, here's a pic of the two original shirts:

Second, a designer copy skirt:
The first one is mine obviously, lol. The second is Joe Brown's Distinctive Denim skirt at http://www.joebrowns.co.uk/sp+Distinctive-Denim-Skirt+LS090

I made it (probably) about 6 months ago and am finally photographing it now. No photo of what it came from, but basically it was a pair of mudd jeans that I had turned into shorts and kept the leftover leg pieces. After searching jean skirts, I came across JB's and fell in love! I learned to pleat and the rest is history Smiley
on me:

And lastly, my lettuce scarf:

No picture of what this came from either. Basically it was a green long sleeve knit tee that I cut up to two rectangles, sewed them together, and then sewed a zig-zag stitch around. Simple and soft Smiley

Thanks for looking! C&C welcomed and appreciated! Cheesy
