To start us off, look at this great wreath! (I don't think this is the exact one Marge created, just one similiar.) I have to admit, I've never made a wreath. But with this cuteness, I just might have to. Just think how perfect this would be for any holiday, just use the right ribbon. With the ribbon above, I'm thinking Valentine's Day - and you've still got a few weeks, so it's perfect timing for a quick wreath project. Go try it!
Big thanks to Marge for sharing! She's super crafty so I'm sure we'll be gazing on more of her fabulous craftiness in weeks to come.

Long ago you made your own clothes because it was much cheaper that way. Today I don't really feel that's the case - clothing is so cheap and with clothing sales, and sometimes even without, it would cost the same if not more to make something. So where's the benefit in sewing? I think it's that you get a custom fit - made just for you.

To get some material to work with, I cut off the skirt below the last strip of lace stuff - I then serged the raw edge. Then with that material that was cut off, I cut 2 strips for straps and serged their edges. Then sewed them on to the top. This whole repurpose was super easy and took about 10-15 (the longest part was trying it on to see where to place the straps and how long to make them).
And voila! Not a stunning coverup, but for $2, it's a go. Warmth and Sunshine, here I come!
