New Window Skirts


So I had a whole pile of dresses I would never wear again, but I still liked the fabric.  I liked the fabric at one time well enough to sew it into a dress.
I cut the skirts off of the bodice and went to thinking what I could do with the 'skirt'.
One purple piece turned into a pillowcase for a birthday girl.



The orange you see in the picture turned into two pillowcases for Kimberly.  She likes orange.
The other Autumn/Fall 'skirt' pieces turned into dining room curtains.
I am thinking it is the first time there have been curtains in the dining room....with pockets.






(the one with pockets)






Most of the time, the curtains will be open.  We like to look out on the back yard.
It's pretty all year long.

Especially the season that is coming.....

I really like what you've done with your skirts - especially the curtains! It reminds me of something another blogging friend did. I think you'd enjoy seeing HER curtains at:

Isn't it fun to recycle fabric? I love to see what I can come up with. I am saving some bits and pieces to make another simple quilt and of course some has ended up on my windows!

Not ever wanting to get rid of anything MAKES me creative. I always try to squeeze another use out of my stuff. !!
