skirt to pillow - who knew!


So, what started life as a cute skirt for my daughter, a couple of years ago, has now become a super cute pillow on her bed! I love when you can reuse items that have become too small, especially when the new use is so great. Needless to say she loves it on her bed, it's so soft and colorful! It was a great knitting project, suggested by the dear friend who helped me learn how to knit. A few of us used to have a small knitting club, and we all had great fun with this project, from using fun yarns, like the ribbon yarn and the eyelash yarn, and choosing fun colors to switch up the stripes - I loved knitting that skirt! And now, we get to continue to enjoy it, be it in a different guise, yay!

What a great idea! I have some clothes that I just love, but are getting a little worn...this is such a great way to keep them around :)
