It’s going to be an easy “Get Ready for Spring/Summer 2013” refashion/sewing project:

Start with picking your fabric! I got this curtain/table cloth material at Goodwill for only $2.99

Then I laid it out flat, and as you can see the front is shorter than the back (yes, I intended it to be like that! 🙂 ) and placed a shirt on top of it, to see where the seams would approximately go:

  10. Adorable!!! Such a good idea, too. I bought a brown lace tablecloth at the thrift store the other day, thinking I would bleach out the brown and dye it a different color, but when I tried to bleach it yesterday, the brown held fast. Hmmmmm, guess I’ll just have to come up with a brown idea.
    Try to stay warm and that humidity will be back before you know it, I promise! 🙂
