What I Wore Sunday: Week 12


Hubby drug us out of bed this morning at 4:00 a.m. to hit a really big sale at the hardware store. 

…at 4:00 a.m.!!!


At least we got the rest of the supplies we need to remodel the upstairs bathroom, and we only spent $168.00.

…at 4:00 a.m.

Wanna know something really funny?  My brother and his wife (and three very little girls) were all there too!  Maybe insanity is in our blood.  :)

Onto What I Wore Sunday…

I made a skirt for myself for Easter.  Okay, so I really just practiced on some fabric from my stash.  I needed to make this as a bride’s maid skirt for one of my good friends.  I liked the practice skirt so much that I kept it and wore it on Easter Sunday.  Good times.


I used this pattern, and made skirt E in the bottom corner.


Here I am cutting out the bride’s maid skirt.  See what the Carpal Tunnel Syndrome has reduced me to?  I’m wearing my braces and using the electric scissors I inherited from Hubby’s grandma.  What a blessing those old, loud scissors are!

This is how the practice skirt turned out.  Sorry.  It’s a cell phone picture.


Just pretend my bedroom is clean, m’kay?!

I love how it turned out, and oh my goodness.  This skirt was so EASY!  It’s a New Look pattern, and the number is E6463, if you want to find that somewhere.  I looked online and didn’t find anything.


(Sorry.  The Hubs was at a meeting, so Jingus took this blurry picture.  He’s eleven.)

Nice, Springy, fun and comfy!


Wrap-around skirts are NOT suggested for mothers of small children.

Sorry for the show, Mike.  *blush*

Moving right along…

The party was fun, right?

My favorite entry was this wonderful Felt Flowers Button Snake from Craft Buds.


Isn’t that a fun idea?  I think Monkey would love something like this.  So would Firecracker.  This is a perfect quiet activity.

Ash’s favorite entry was these super cute clutches from Damita’s Pretty Wrap.


Ashlee thinks these cute and fun, and she doesn’t have any of her own.  A girl can’t have too many bags and purses!

The most viewed entry was a tie!

This Wristlet Purse from Sewing for Utange is a lot of fun.  I love the way she used the pockets from jeans.  Clever, and super cute!


Coleen from Crafty and Cooking Momma refashioned this beach hat to match her Easter outfit.  Fabulous!  I love how it turned out!


Be sure to link up all of your fun fabulousness in our Fabulous Friday link party!  In this party, anything goes.  See you there!

Have a fandibulous weekend!
