Short Week

This week is a short week for me. This weekend is a girls weekend to Las Vegas! Beyond Excited!

Besides spending time with my mom on Mothers Day, I did some sewing this weekend. I made a crown from some men’s ties

What is so great is that I used the big end of the tie. Doing that cut my sewing time in half.
Then I made up some skirts from bandanas. The pink one (which I am wearing today) I lined this one and I didn’t the others I made. I will wearing capris leggings with the skirts that aren’t line. Going forward, however I am going to line the skirts. I use 3 bandanas. With bandanas that have designs I use 2 and the 3rd one is solid. I cut the solid one in half and sew between the design bandanas.

I love this elastic band material. It is the same material that is used for baby headbands. It is so much easier to sew with then the normal white band type of elastic. I got the elastic material at Wal-Mart, they had alot of colours but no white or black; so that is why the green and paisley skirts have blue bands.
