Recycled Skirts

I don't know about you , but I love to find wonderful fabrics when looking in unexpected places. These are pictures of two skirts that I purchased at a Goodwill store for $2.50 each because I absolutely love the fabric.

I thought the linen skirt that has the torn edge look to it and ruffles would make a gorgeous lampshade cover. I am not sure what I will do with the other one, but taken apart it would be a lovely drape for a shelf or put over a cushion on a chair and tucked in and let drape down. I encourage you to think outside the box and look for fabric in unexpected places and you will be surprised what you find.

That is a brilliant idea! I've been wondering what to do with a hanging lamp fixture after we finish redecorating our kitchen and this is the answer!

Hi, if you stop by my blog and look under my "Vintage" posts you can see a photo of one of my studio windows, the 'curtains' are white vintage dresses : ) I'm enjoying your blog!
