Because I don’t have enough to do and need to give myself more projects (note the sarcasm) I have decided to implement something new on my blog!!
Because I CAN.
Wednesday I went to Goodwill to gather things to make an Alice in Wonderland costume. I am going to a party tomorrow night where we have to dress up with our team. My team is going as an Alice in Wonderland theme.
I purchased 2 blue pillow cases and a small table cloth for a total of $4.50. Then I went home, draped a pattern, ripped out the seams, and started cutting.
(These pictures were borrowed from Google search, I do not own them-
I am simply borrowing them because I forgot to take pictures of my purchases before I cut them up)
I finished my costume Thursday afternoon and while it is not the most amazing thing I have made…it really actually is pretty bad, but I will get into that during the post about the dress itself, I decided that I should do this more often. Go to Goodwill, grab some “good enough” stuff and make something random with it. Thrifty Thursdays! But because I AM so busy sewing a million things, I cannot make something every week- so it is going to be a monthly thing.
I’d LOVE some input- what do YOU think I should make at my next Thrifty Thursday? Should I stick with a Disney theme- maybe do land Ariel? Or maybe Belle’s town dress? It doesn’t have to be Disney, but I will place this restriction on myself- I have to get the supplies $20 or under. This will be a CHALLENGE. But I am excited to have some fun with it.
