Walmart is good for a few things. Or maybe many, depending... Like buying a nice summer hat. And giving birth to ideas.
My Handsome let out a remark a few days ago that surfaced again in my mind when I was in Walmart. He said something about someone looking nice wearing a certain hat, and I thought to myself, hmmm, I think I will get myself one! I saw this cute one and just had to buy it, even though it wasn't in the budget. It was, after all, only $7.00. By the way, my hubby does a nice job giving haircuts, right?
I saw a few skirts in Walmart that later on gave me some ideas. Like, maybe I can make my own? Maybe I can get rid of some scrap fabrics here? Maybe I can save myself some money? Maybe I can be in 'style' doing it? I had just bought that shirt in STUFF, and it just happened to match with some fabrics I had lying around. And I mean I had some of it lying around for a loooong time.
I threw that thing together today; once I start, I can't stop. And man, is it ever comfy. Nothing beats the comfiness of a light summer skirt like that, if you know what I mean. If you have one you will know what I mean.
So go ahead and look in your closet or boxes or wherever you store your fabrics. See if you can't find three or four or five pieces of scrap that can be pieced together. Hey, don't worry, it will be in style! This kind of skirt uses lots of fabric so it is excellent if you want to reduce your stock of scraps, and the pattern ideas are endless but simple. Let me know if you like the idea or make yourself one and show it to me!
