I’ve been doing a bit of sewing over the past few weeks and I’ve so enjoyed going through my fabric stash. Fabric is only second to paint in my “things that inspire” list 🙂
Last year I bought a gauze skirt at the thrift store for a couple of bucks. I loved the soft way the fabric flowed and I loved the ruffles. The skirt has been tucked away in a basket until last week. Pulling it out I was immediately inspired to do a few projects in our kitchen. (Which I’m desperately trying to finish!)
In the same basket, I found this dreamy linen fabric. I’ve no idea where it came from…just something that spoke to me years ago that I tucked away for just this project…
Never has there been an easier sewing project. I simply cut the white linen to the width I wanted and hemmed the edges.
Then I cut a couple of rows of ruffles off of the skirt and sewed them, three on each end, to the linen!
I love it! If you can sew a straight line, which anyone can, you can do this project. And next time you’re in the thrift store look for ruffled skirts to use on projects. The only rule is : * you have to love the look and feel of the fabric
