ok - havent been a member long enough for me to post pictures so you need to put so effort in sorry--

i made a skirt.  it's a plaid kilt looking skirt, i used a receiving blanket to make the bulk of it.  it fastens with velcro and i used buttons and a mesh laundry bag as decorative accents.  i also tore apart a basket and rewove it to make a belt that was attached for the top of the skirt.  the basket also got used to make a choker and a cuff.  everything is blue, the main skirt is a blue plaid.  enjoy!

I went to the dollar store and spent 7.52, but ended up not using two of the things, so this skirt cost even less. links are included bellow.


more links to see the skirt laying flat and the receipt.

Great idea with the belt!

I find joy in creating and helping others create not just jewelry and crafts but best of all, the life they want.
