As you may (or may not) know, I have been waiting for the snow to come to my town <3.
It did snow for 2 hours in Gilroy though, just an hour over the hill and where I volunteer my time on Sundays. Bummer that it couldn't have happened today..... Oh well, we did have some spectacular sunshine here in Los Banos yesterday, I took my new camera out for a drive and got some amazing photos.
I also finished another skirt-to-purse. I used half of the skirt and added some denim to the top, as well as denim straps. I retained the original pleats on this skirt, making the pleats off center on the purse. I hand sewed the straps and hand sewed them in place. I added a fun little scrappy denim flower to the side, to hide a seam.
|The skirt split in two. This was a Talbots skirt that I found at the thrift store. Fromie-kitty helped.|
|I flattened the bottom and added denim to the top.|
|I hand sewed the straps. Because I was breaking all of my sewing machine needles. :-(|
|The original skirt pleats are still here.|
|I hand sewed the straps on.|
|My scrappy little flower. I frayed the edges then added some fray check.|
|This print is just adorable, isn't it?|
