At the beginning of the year, our church time changed from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. While I prefer 9:00 (get up, get going, back in time for Monkey’s nap…) I love the yummy breakfasts we have on Sunday mornings. This past Sunday, we had homemade waffles with a cream cheese/whipped cream topping with fresh strawberries and chocolate chips.
Oh, and don’t mind the green plastic plate. We have five boys. We break fewer dishes when they’re plastic! ;)
Anyway, I love crafting, but I also love cooking. Love it, love it, love it!
So, onto What I Wore Sunday…
I wore bed sheets to Church. It’s true. I wore sheets, and no one even knew!
I bought two sets of sheets off of the clearance rack for less than $5. They were both queen sized, so that’s A LOT of fabric!
I made the dolman-style shirt out of the jersey knit sheets I bought and the skirt from a cotton blend. From the picture, it looks like I don’t match, but there are sage green stripes on the skirt. Stay tuned for the dolman style shirt tutorial. I’ve got it scheduled for May 31st.
So, the skirt. Oh my goodness. It was so fun to make, but since it was just a trial and error type thing, I didn’t take pictures. This cute skirt from Shabby Apple was my inspiration:
The sheet just had vertical lines on it, so I cut four separate skirt panels on the bias to get the chevron stripes. I had to match the stripes up, though. The panels were shaped like this:
For the hem, I just cut the thick band off the top of the flat sheet, lined it up with my skirt and sewed it on!
Last week’s party was uber fun. I am just amazed at how creative you all are!
My favorite link was this awesome fabric bracelet from Handmade by Hilani
I’m over the craft for our Stake Girl’s Camp coming up. I think this would be a super fun and easy craft. We’d have to sew it by hand, but that way the girls learn hand sewing too. I’ll see if I can get it approved…
Ash’s favorite entry was this adorable little strawberry dress from Polkadots on Parade
Oh goodness. So sweet. The dress and the little girl are absolutely adorable. This tutorial will not only show you how to make this cute, cute dress, but she’ll show you how to sew a french seam, too!
The most viewed link was this cute, cute refashioned dress from Tales of the Scotts.
You should see the baby in this dress! Oh yummy! She is so cute! I love the way Eva pairs this dress with leggings and a denim jacket. Love, love, love!
Thanks for partying, y’all! Be sure to enter the Fabulous Friday Link Party! :)
Have a great weekend!
