[2015] $2 Dollar Hula Skirt

This post will also be on my refashion blog: iamarefashionistamom.wordpress.com.
The reason this post is here is because I am not using other fabric materials to make this item.

My daughter told me that their 1st school assembly is on 8/17. She told me that I NEED to make her a hula skirt. When I asked why, it’s because it’s Hawaiian Day. I wasn’t prepared this year because their last Hawaiian Day was in 2013. I’ve been preparing for Pirate Day which has been the theme last couple of years. Anyway, without a car and a busy after school/work schedule, the only place I could go to was Dollar Tree – hoping to convince her to buy premade Hawaiian stuff. But, they ran out at my store. So I resorted to buying tablecloths. She chose green and yellow. I only used half of each to make one hula skirt.

[2015] Teacher Appreciation Week – Day 5

This is the final day for teacher appreciation week. Their instruction was to write a note to their teacher. I didn’t want a simple note or a greeting card. My daughter wrote her thank you note, and I just inserted it in a picture frame. The plan was to embellish the frame, but she fell asleep before I even took the frame out of the bag. I guess simplicity is beauty. Besides, there’s always next year.

Until then,

Happy DIY
