Daisy, Daisy, Give me your answer do

I think we all knew it wouldn’t be long before I cut into another swapped sheet, am I right? That’s ok. My predictability is part of my charm. At least, that’s what I tell myself.

New skirt

This “pink & orange daisies on green” sheet caught my eye right away when it arrived. I love it! It was originally sent in by Beth. Tonight I used my usual Sew What! Skirts pattern on it, and made an elastic-waist skirt. I would have ventured outside of my comfort zone and tried something new, but I loved the daisy print so much, I didn’t want to experiment with it and risk rendering it useless!

I probably should have waited until tomorrow to photograph the skirt – I feel like the colors in the image just aren’t as fabulous as they are in real life. But what can I say? I’m completely impatient. I just wouldn’t be me if I waited 14 hours for the photo shoot ๐Ÿ˜€ The tank top is new, too, although I didn’t make it. I got it at Target, and frankly, was skeptical that it would look ok on me. I like it though. The only thing this outfit needs now is a matching daisy necklace to wear. I’ll get right on that ๐Ÿ˜€

  1. cute, cute, and did i say cute? I missed the swap by a day ๐Ÿ™ you have done some great stuff with yours….love it all

    1. Oh, that’s too bad! I’m considering another swap for later in the season, so keep an eye out… Thanks for the complement!

  2. I love your skirts! The vintage sheet skirt swap is genious! Wish I wouldn’t have missed the deadline. I have sheets that I’ve purchased and continue to make things from them. Will have to make my own with my own!

    1. Thanks! It really worked out so well – I love the sheets I ended up with, and so far the response from those who have gotten their back is overwhelmingly positive, too. Such fun! If we do it again, you’re welcome to hop on board!

  3. […] I realized I havenโ€™t been blogging since my skirt tutorial on Sunday, and I missed it […]

  4. Have you seen this post at Craftzine (http://blog.craftzine.com/archive/2008/05/pillowcase_challenge_book_send.html) about a book on repurposing pillowcases? Maybe there could be a book about your sheets!

    1. That is so cool! I don’t think I could get a whole book out of the swap, but you’ve got me thinking a magazine article could be worth writing…
