i love swallows (ha, and swallowing, ZING!).  but since i'm broke-ass and can't afford one of those hip tattoos the kids are sporting, i decided to make a something with a classy swallow on it.  behold.

(please ignore knee hair, i'm too lazy to shave)

full unworn look (don't worry, i had pants on when i took the photo...i swear...).  note the classy polka dot ribbon used as a waistband to cover up....

.....my huge mistakes.

up close on the pretty birdie.  i want to put a big letter I above it, you know, to give the men folk a hint when i'm boozing at the bars. Cheesy

darbu, you're lucky i'm unemployed.
here's a little number i like to call, really bad paper crafting:


and ms mouse, i just kind of free handed the pattern after looking up a few tattoos (on hot guys).  the neck is all weird but it works, right?

Haha.. I really like your tutorial. Very unique = very cool. I know I'm odd... but your paper tutorial is actually really easy for me to understand. I think it's because I work with paper too before I do anything with my fabric just to get an idea of what I'm doing... because, let's face it, most of the time I have NO clue about what I'm doing.  Cheesy

Anyway... I really like your skirt. It looks super great on you... unshaved legs and all (which you couldn't tell, by the way). Haha.. mine aren't shaved either, but I figure I've got a great excuse... it's fall and I need the extra warmth.  Grin

Omg!!  I did the same thing, lol not for a tutorial but to figure out how to cut a circle skirt without making seams!  Folding paper and cutting is an awesome way to do test runs. Kiss

Seriously much easier than the pattern I bought for basically the same exact skirt. Now I won't dread making fun/crazy skirts.

And I looooove the "I" idea. Hahahahaha, I seriously doubt very many people would get it, but hey, it'd make for a good conversation starter. I think I'm going to have to steal your idea for a bag or something.  Grin

I'm thinking maybe an eye would work better than the letter I. It has its pros and cons though- it's a little... too much like those brain teasers, but at least people wouldn't keep saying "oh, is that your initial?" I'm putting too much thought into this now...

What a great skirt and a great tutorial!  I've made one in a deep teal corduroy and it looked beautiful, and so easy to do!  The only change I made was to put in the zipper before sewing on the top edging pieces.  Thanks for the tute!
