I've been shopping

I have had some of these for a while,, just thought I would load them all at once,,, most of them are for Holly,, 


  I love skirts with seam and hem options,,unfortunately, since Holly and I are such different sizes,, I have to get two patterns,,, one in her size, one in mine,, and equally unfortunate,, since Joann's is so small still,,(tornado in May hit it) they only had her size,, so I don't know if I am going to go ahead and get one in my size, or try to make these big enough for me,,,

  These are for me,,,I need some new aprons for work,, and the bags/purses,, well they were only $1.00 each, so I thought why not,,

Instant gratification,,,

After my last jacket,, I needed something quick and easy,, well add "er" to each of those,, ha ha ,, and this was just the thing,, I found some cotton crinkle material in my G-mothers old stash, and in going through my old Thread magazines,, I found an article in there on making broomstick skirts,, now for me,, making the actual broomstick "look" well i'm iffy on that,, but I do like the layers look,, and that is what this skirt is about,, and it is so easy,, you just measure and sew,, basically....

Now it wasn't as quick as I would have liked it to be,, since I did the seam the way I did,, wright side of each upper ruffle to wrong side of lower ruffle,, but it still was enjoyable...

I just like the idea that I can make this skirt in lots of fabrics,, you aren't limited to the crinkle look,, and you can make the layers and depth you want,, and have as many layers as desired... the seam finishes are also,  many options for this skirt..
