Cabin Fever

Okay. I love snow, but I'm done. I'm very done. I'm over it. I'm very over it. If I don't get out of this house soon I think I'll go crazy. It's a good thing we don't have curtains or drapes in our home (we have wooden shades) because by now I would have made us all matching lederhosen and head scarves. I mean it. Look what my cabin fever has done to me.

I had this perfectly cute (but not perfectly fitting) skirt in my closet. I LOVE black and white hounds tooth check. Any hounds tooth check, really. I saw this in my closet and the next thing you know, I turned it into this. . .

Here's the up close and personal look.

And then, because I had some left over fabric, I made this brooch. Stop the madness!

After all was said and done, this was all that was left from the poor skirt. I will reuse the zipper and strings in some other project, but now I'm just too exhausted.

Now, I hope you'll jump over to my Etsy shop and check out my items for sale. Sorry I haven't had time to make any lederhosen for the shop, but I'll do custom orders if you want some.



  1. WTG! I love the end products but to see that they came from clutter that you repurposed and have only the barest of scraps left over really is what made me have to comment. You rock!

    P.S. Did you see that I mentioned Tidy Brown Wren on a recent blog post? If not, please do check it out. :-)

  2. you go girl!!!! that is so cute, I love it when things are recycled into other things.Great job!!!

  3. I love the purse! How creative!

  4. I hear ya on the snow! We're in Richmond, VA and it is getting a little crazy for sure. Lots of productivity with the craftiness though! :)

  5. You're too funny - the snow has me antsy too - but you've made the best stuff with your time!

  6. That's amazing! You're talented. I want to be able to do this!


I'd love to know what you're thinking. Please feel free to leave ideas and comments.
