Scrappy Floral Skirt at Living With Punks

I'm over at Living With Punks today with a project for the Scrap Your Stash series . . . one great idea after another to use up some of that huge fabric scrap pile!

Here's a peek at my project . . . a fun floral skirt that uses more scraps than you would expect:


And if you're still hanging around here and haven't clicked over for the how-to yet, I'll just keep on rambling! I'm like 90% sure I was invited to this series by mistake. I was all sorts of flattered and excited to be a part of her series until she sent out the posting schedule . . . and I saw the other contributors. Hmmmm. I don't know where she got my email address from, but I think it snuck in by mistake and Susan was just too polite to tell me so. There have been some pretty big, pretty awesome ladies involved so far (and I mean big like I would act all awkward and giggly if we met in person, not big like pass the Oreos, please), and there are a lot more big, awesome ones coming up. I'm just glad Susan was too nice to tell me to scram. So head over, check it out, and leave a nice comment so I don't feel like the loner in the middle school cafeteria!

  1. I am hopping over from 'living with punks'. I have to say, your idea merging is phenomenal. That skirt is absolutely the best reuse/recycle project I have seen. It is beautiful.

    Thank you for taking the time to share. I think I need to look around at the rest of your site.

  3. You are too hard on yourself. You deserved to be there. And that skirt is ADORABLE.

    And I'm pretty sure I'd be giggly and goofy and dorky if I met YOU in person. So there.

  7. So beautiful. I really love this, I'm going to need to be on the lookout out for a white skirt...or maybe a white t-shirt. That could be cute too. Thanks so much for this awesome idea!

  10. You belong there girl! Ok I haven't read the tutorial yet but here is my guess... You got the idea for the flower shapes off an anthro pillow? I saw a pillow just like it there and was day dreaming of making one myself!
