Is That a Camera On Your Hip?

Omigosh! I forgot all about choosing a winner for my hankie giveaway! And you've all been so patient! :) The winner, chosen randomly by my husband is...

Lise of In the Purple House! Lise, send your address to darlingpetunia (at) aol (dot) com, and I will mail the chicken hankie right out!
Okay, getting down to business. My self-stitched item for today was one of my favorite projects ever: the tee shirt skirt. I think this was one of the most satisfying, problem-free things I've ever made!

Skirt, refashioned from tee shirts
Tee, Florence & Fred, Tesco
Shoes, Dansko
One thing about a skirt like this--it gets a LOT of attention. You don't wear something like this if you mind having people giving your lower body some hard looks! Everyone wants to know, "Is that made of tee shirts? What kind of tee shirts? Did YOU make it? Is that a camera on your hip?"
I've always wanted to make another version of this skirt but here I am, two years later, and I haven't yet! --adding it to the list--

Ooh...I won! My Lucy will be so happy with her chicken hankie! Thanks so much!

I love your t-shirt skirt, and I'm so impressed that you can come up with something handmade to wear every day! Amazing.

That skirt is so cool & it looks super comfy. Thanks for the link to the tutorial. I'm going to have to give it a try.

I love it!
However, on me it would look like a moving billboard!
I'll have to settle for a quilt lol.

I really like it! I can imagine that it would attract curiosity, though.
