Open Eyes lead to crafty finds!

20130501_220437Super close up!

Isn’t it lovely?  Beautifully regal purple with silver stripes and an ivory with gold stripes. It was super inexpensive too. (Without ripping it all apart yet, I have about 2 and a half yards of usable knit fabric I think.)

I saw it peaking out of the rack at a store I popped into last weekend.What store? I’ll give you a hint, I needed crayons. Now, I didn’t expect to find inspiration for a summer skirt that day, but part of being creative and crafty is embracing the inspiration when it hits you.

Hit me, it did; embrace it, I shall!

But, just what was that store? It was K-Mart.

No joke.

It was a clearance rack of winter clothes and for $1.99 each (I found 2 3XLs and 1 XL) these turtlenecks will provide enough fabric for a skirt for me, leg warmers for one of my little friends (maybe two or a tunic dress) and possibly a lovie rattle or stuffed owl perhaps.

Not bad huh?

How is that going to work? Come back (or follow along on facebook) to find out. I don’ t know about you, but I’m pretty excited for my very own New Dress a Day like project. (And do I have MANY more if this goes well!)

What would you make with fabric like this?
