Love the t-shirt skirt,I made one last year (or maybe the year before) and it's the most comfortable skirt ever  Smiley

Thanks for the link to the patchwork wrap skirt CLM. I love that style and have been looking at recycled sari ones on ebay unfortunately they don't make them big enough for me which ticks me off a fair bit as I know a sari is about 6 metres long and my butt aint that big  Wink I have a gorgeous sari I just can't bear to chop it up and make it wearable for me. I wouldn't want to cause offence to anyone by actually wearing it as is although I did teach myself to wrap it properly  Grin

Tshirt skirts are so comfortable. And a great way to use up old shirts. Ask friends, go to garage sales, thrift stores to find shirts too...and you can dye them too since they are cotton.

I used discharge paste for the bleached parts. Just search for it. You can paint it on or use a narrow squeeze bottle. Let it dry, then iron to activate. You never know quite what color it becomes. This actually started out as a summer top, but wanted to be a skirt instead. Grin. Sometimes you just have to let your kids do their own thing.

I did do a tut to go with the skirt. You can keep adding strips until it is long enough.

Checked out the tute, thanks for that!

Big stash of stuff moved to a friend's warehouse for an eventual yard sale, sold 2 vintage chairs to the neighbour (actually, I will end up swapping for items from her store, lol. Have become addicted to nice jewelry which I absolutely cannot afford to buy so trading it is!), big sack off to the thrift store, even bigger sack for my mom, random odds and ends to a couple other people...

...and yet... house over flowing with craft projects, lol! A serious abundance of stuff. I'll be attacking it this week so wish me luck with the pile!

I always imagine you CLM, wherever you are standing, with a flow of items coming into one hand, swirling around you for a bit, some of it becomes wonderful things and the rest then flies from your other hand in to a variety of containers, all destined for the perfect place.  Your amazing Grin

lol great imagery...CLM seems magical indeed

I can't believe I actually used up an entire piece of fabric and a bit of kimono fabric! I had everything I needed in my stash for the last swap...

I had to buy a few yards of pul fabric since I am doing a charity project...most of it should be gone in the one project...

Sigh...I've been adding to my stash, and haven't even been organizing things. I just got a huge stack of scrapbook paper and some very nice beads from someone clearing out their own stash.
On the bright side, I'm working on a swap, and so far I've only had to spend 25 cents. Grin

I hear you. A friend of mine gave me four huge boxes of stuff last week that I literally have zero room for. I've spent the last couple of days going through things, deciding what to keep and what to give to good will, etc. It doesn't help when my kiddos see something going to the "out" bin and they are all "Oh! I want that fabric! Mama, can I keep it?" Sheesh....
I also have an upside, though! I finished a swap and used only what was in my stash so hooray! I will post pictures when she receives it. It wasn't a huge amount of stash, but it took a TON of time. Still, every little bit helps.
