>Hello Crafty People!

     It’s Sunday morning and I hope everyone is having a good weekend. As for me, I went out Friday night, saw a couple of up and coming country singers, Craig Campbell and Frankie Ballard. If your are into country (and even if you’re not), you should definitely check these guys out.

I got home at about 2:15am and even though I got up at 10:00am, I just don’t recover the way I did when I was in my 20’s. So, I ended up blowing off the housework in favor of some easy crafts.

I found this animal print nightgown at the Salvation Army. It is a nice, stretchy cotton blend so if I change this up, it is good for daytime.

I cut this nightgown in the middle and using my green paisly skirt as a template, I took in the sides to create a more A shaped skirt. I sewed the sides together and turned over the waist to hem and add elastic. The bottom was already hemmed so that eliminated a whole step! The skirt is cute and sexy without being overpowering. It will go well with a black, white or brown top. I also have a brown cardi that will look great with this on a chilly morning.
I purposely left the back longer to eliminate the pregnant butt effect. ‘Cuz I do have a big bootie…
If you want to make your own without stalking the thrift stores, you could try these from Fabric.com:

I have this great antique door that my friend gave me. I had planned to make a table from it but changed my mind because of the detailing. I didn’t want to cover it with a tablecloth! I ended up leaning this against my wall (anchored with picture wire and a molly bolt in the wall). I think I will add some molding to hold keys, etc, and a mirror. Any other ideas, anyone?
