A quick trip to the Salvation Army got me 10 packages of ice-blue sequins ($1) and a large, beige flat sheet ($2). Let’s talk about what happened to the former.
|One dollar! (That’s just 1.5 packs)
As for the latter, I was attempting to make a pair of Laupre’s Easy Breezy Wrap Pants, but something went wrong in my head and I ended up with a kind of long-legged diaper. It’s unfortunate, because the beige sheet I found was a good weight and khaki-look, but I think I’ve ruined the whole piece. I swear I followed the directions (of course, I hate directions, so I’m lying to myself) but it ended up looking like it’d need a lot of tailoring. The pants are supposed to be really easy, so I’m missing something. I’ll try it out again tomorrow night. : (
