A Pink Linnen Skirt

I just finished this little sewing project, that I threw myself into yesterday. It's a pink linnen skirt made from left over pieces of fabric from last summer, the pattern I made up as I went along and the buttons I already had at home as well, laying around waiting to be used.

I'm very pleased with the result. Now don't you laugh at me, I know I'm not a top model or anything... but I gotta say the skirt is oh so comfy, AND in need of some ironing. Too bad I didn't think of that before I took these pics, right?

Earring hanger! (A do-redo project)

Finally! I've been thinking about creating an earring hanger for so long, and I finally got it done. No more entangled earring mess! 

It's made of recycled/salvaged material. The base is a bit of cardboard. The shiny white fabric is from a nightgown I bought cheap but that turned out not to fit, so it's just been laying around.  Even the white ribbons at the top (which it hangs from) are actually the shoulder straps from that nightie. The black lace is similarly salvaged from a piece of lingerie that I never used anyways. The blue ribbon was left over from a sewing project years ago.
