7 for her,
2 sewing machines,
Chrysanthemum was in charge of cutting and although she cut out 4 different sizes for 4 different chicks, she did each one perfectly. It's a gift, I tell ya!
Chrysanthemum is a big fan of using drapery and upholstery fabric for skirts. You like? Skirts above are hers, photographed before she packed and left. (More to come.)
See the purple paisley sheer? $1.50 a yard from WalMart with fold-over elastic waist.
She laughed at me because, after finishing each skirt, I would exclaim "this is my favorite!" Each and every one of 'em.

I love using things for other than their intended purpose but more proud that I actually remembered that I had the straps!

I am participating in a craftster swap where partners construct a purse and accessories. My partner likes geometric prints and wanted a little case for tampons.Sewed this little fold-over style case and decided it was just too boring so stitched a little flair inside, on the lining. Sure hope my partner has a sense of humor about her cycle/moon phase.
