My sewing machine abilities are not great.

Shrug made out of a Rainbow Brite sheet.  This is my first top-like thing that is not a tank top.  I didn't tie it tightly enough for the photos so it looks kind of wonky.  It also kind of makes me feel like some sort of Japanese cartoon character with the over-the-top cuteness.

This is my attempt to take a picture of the hood.

And here of course is the bad mirror shot.

This is a circle skirt that I made out of a round tablecloth, actually well over a year ago.  I usually wear it over or under other skirts.
I made that blanket underneath for my boyfriend two years ago, by hand.  It's two layers thick (fleece) and the warmest blanket ever.

And these started out has bellydancing pants but came out HUGE, even for bellydancing.  They're the most comfortable pants ever though and I've been wearing them under skirts when its cold.  They're so huge it just looks like another skirt.

This is one of many tiered skirts I've made recently, this one from random thrift store sheets.

And this is a not-very-well made utility belt from duct tape (the belt), an altoids tin, and an old robot t-shirt.  Um..a riend gave me that Jesus sticker...but I'm agnostic.

Those are so cute.  I love the Rainbow Brite - now I'll have to raid my old twin sheets and look for inspirations!

Those are so awesome! I am dazzled by the rainbow brite shrug.

note to self: stop by goodwill store this week and search for odd sheets....

Love the rainbow brite shrug! Very Anime.

Goodwill sheets are so tempting and deterring at the same time...all the cute ones are kids' sheets, and all I can think about is pee....

hahaha! BambiKhanastic, that's the second thing that popped into my head, too! First I thought "I wonder if my Mom has any of my sheets from when I was a toddler?" And then i instantly thought - waaaait! Phweet!

Dime stores in really rural towns often have bizarre and surprising kids' sheets if you like adventures - that's where I got my sonic the hedgehog sheet.

if you wash the sheets enough, they're so worth buying.
from my experience (so i worked at a small thrift store and they prolleh don't do this at big ones), if it's cute enough or they think it'll sell or whatever, someone will take it home and wash it if it's dirty. so even pee'd on sheets end up okay. XD
