So, a little bit about myself, and then I’ll show off what I made yesterday. My name is Sarah, and I’m Joe’s wife for almost 9 sometimes good, sometimes bad years. I have 2 kids Nelson (5) and Grace (4). Before kids, I was a nurse (wrong path) and just recently I discovered my creative side. I love all sorts of crafting, and will eventually try everything, well, most everything. Right now, I have a hard time deciding which craft I want to do, and still remembering to take care of my family. I do want to add, that I am a recovering shopaholic, not the “I love to shop tee, hee”, but the “I hide purchases/credit cards from my husband” shopaholic. Tomorrow on my blog I will have a post about it. I think this is a topic that needs to get out there because there are a lot of people with this addiction, and I would like to save as many people as I can, the pain that I and my husband have gone through…….
I have a little blog, So Cute by Sarah, I just started a few weeks ago, so there isn’t much on there…… but I’m wanting to do a whole bunch. My blog is my way of journaling my journey through my goals for this year, and my life as a woman, a wife a mom and a friend. I have lofty goals for this year and I’m hoping not to fall flat on my face. A few goals for this year are: run a 5K (this is going to be good – um since I don’t run), (( and we are going on a hiking trip this summer: um, I don’t hike either- but I really want to )) )) eat vegetables (I don’t like vegetables) , have more people over, and it would be great if I actually would stop procrastinating and finish decorating my house ( I keep changing my mind), oh and drink LESS Coke. I just can’t give it up, I’ve tried, it’s impossible.
So enough about me and now here is what I made yesterday (Disclaimer – totally not the greatest sewer in the world. )
I had this Mini Skort – why I bought it, who knows, b/c um…. I’ve had two kids, and would definitely not look good in it at all. I decided to make it into a tote bag. I love totes and purses, and I’m getting tired of the ones I have, so it’s time for something one. I do realize this is not a new idea, but it is so cool. I can’t believed it worked! Here are some pictures! Enjoy!
So, here’s the skort…..
I cut off the most of the “shorts” part….. I made this up as I went along, so I played it “safe” with the cutting…. oh and save that material, I used it for the straps…..
At this point, I’m doing the happy dance all over b/c it totally worked ! I can’t wait to use it tomorrow!
