Next Recycle.......

Ok well the skirt I did from a former women's shirt turned out great, so now I am pumped about getting started on the rest of the pile I have. So without further adue here is the next project.

This is a long flowy skirt that I love but never wear, plus I think it is now a little tight in the waist. My plan is to turn it into a cute flowy summer dress for my dd #3.

I had already began cutting it before I remembered to take the before pic, sorry. It is a light creamy tan color with white polka dots. I am removing the top layer which I plan on turning into the bodice and reattach it to the bottom. I will then make some straps either out some scraps from this skirt or I may come up with some on my own. HMMMMMMM.....................

Wish me luck!

Now for the rest of the story: I have made a decision to start working, outside of home that is.

Where you ask?

Why you ask?

So I can get lots of these, like this fella.

Ok well maybe that is spreading it a little, but I must say, "You go Boy", lol......
I am going to be working now, I am not sure of my schedule but I do know I have got the job. I have decided to do this out of great desire to pay for my High School Diploma and to start some college classes soon, as well as a few other things I have in my "want" list, which would be a surger and an embroidery machine. So if I want to make all this happen, one income is not going to cut it, thus the reason to work at the blue store as my 5 yr old calls it. I do hope I am able to keep up with my sewing and blogging, those I will miss tremendously. Wish me luck in this new adventure of mine, I will keep you all posted.


(that is from Hee Haw, if any of you remember that show)

Ooh congrats on the new job!
I love walmart lol,especially the craft section!
I totally understand your reasons to go to work.I took some time off work for health reasons and I feel I went back too soon,but I went back because I wanted to achieve a few goals that would require some extra funds.
Oh,and I LOVED Hee Haw when I was younger...never missed an episode!

You've inspired me to start looking into my cl
oset to see what can be recyled...I have a gorgeous Ann Taylor Loft dress that has embroidery on it that may end up and summer shirt for me.

I keep saying that if I have to go back to work I just want to go to work at Walmart.

Also, don't you get a discount at Walmart...they have a serger for $180...I got it for Christmas from my mom...haven't used it yet but I've heard it works good.

Good Luck and thanks for the nomination!!!! I'm so excited!

Well, do you get an employee discount in the sewing department? They are pretty good. Congrats on the new job, and on having a bigger plan! It's always good to have higher goals.
