How to make an old nag new again…

September 13, 2010

I recently visited my friend Laurraine of Patchwork Pottery for an afternoon of stitching. I didn’t want to haul my sewing machine over to her place, so decided to work on a hand project. I wanted to embellish an old skirt I had, that needed a little livening up.

The skirt turned out beautifully, and I’ve had so many comments on it since I’ve been wearing it. I used Autumn colours, but you can do this with any fabrics – to match the skirt. You could use this to embellish jeans or a jean jacket – the sky is the limit!

I am not the professional photographer, but the photos do show the detail, so you will have a better idea.

Here’s the pattern I created. Enjoy!
