And I made these between going to college, work, and taking care of 4 dogs and a little brother! Yep. Let's see...
Since I have not yet registered with craftster as a member, I must use photobucket. Here I am working on one of the skirts yesterday! My friend took this picture and I had no idea she did until I loaded the pictures!

Okay, I made this patchwork skirt about a month ago, and it took me like 4 hours. I made up the pattern and thats basically it. It was grueling to cut out all the squares and whatnot, but the outcome was well worth it!

This one I made about half a month ago, and I just made up the pattern for this as well. The white material under the shear material is all bunched up in this picture, so it regularly goes all the way to the bottom of the skirt. This one took maybe an hour to make.

This one I worked on for probably 4 hours...I also made up this pattern. The top waistband part was actually an old scarf, and some of the material in the skirt was from old t-shirts and pillow cases. It was really hard to sew all the different fabric types together. but it looks neat so I guess that's alright. I LOVE THIS SKIRT! I wore it to class today and everyone loved it.

I decided my dog, Charlie, needed some cute stuff too! I'm working on a little backpack/jacket thing right now, but it isn't done yet so I didn't post it. However, I did make him this neck scarve to match my skirt! It looks adorable on him I think!

Also, I made this funny toy dude for my dog! It's made out of old blue jeans, and I stuffed the body with stuffing. The eyes are just permanent marker. He loves it when I make him toys! You can even see his little head at the top of the picture just waiting to grab it up!

Well, I hope you enjoy! I love looking at all the creations on this website, so I thought it was about time I post a few of my own! Cheesy

You look great with those skirts  Smiley Well done!

We all make mistakes, and then when you've made enough, they call it experience.
