I was informed in February that I would be participating in the recycled art show where I work.  At first it was recommended that I make a bag and slap some motif from a shirt or something on the front.  Since that didn't really sound recycled to me, I set out to find tablecloths to make a shirt and pants with.  Sadly in Wenatchee there were no good tablecloths to be had, so I thought "sheets!"  So I ended up at the Goodwill and made this:

The capris are super comfy and lined w/ a white sheet that we got as a sample at work.  They were see-through otherwise.  The shirt is cute, but not cut properly for me, so needs some modification to the pattern before I can wear it.  I had a lot of fun making it and hanging next to magazine collages and bird feeders made from kitchen equipment, it's been a hit!

In case the picture won't show up, try this then PM so I can figure out what the deal is...
