I just started cutting. That can be very scary but for me, it is usually when I can make it work. I cut in lace skirt into 3 strips of fabric and sewed those strips end to end. Then I cut 2 strips from the brown and white top and sewed those unto the lace strip. Then I folded in half and stitched up the sides. I now had a very long tube. There were some part where the lace was pulled or where I had gotten a little too aggressive with the scissors and I just stitched those up as well.
There was just enough left over to make some t shirt strips that could be fashioned into a bracelet. I do believe that this up cycle was a success!!!!!

|You can see that there is an additional project here. This headband was the sleeve of Wendy's first t shirt that I had made into a scarf. I cut a strip from each sleeve and reenforced the seam. This makes a wonderful knit headband! I just embellished it with handmade flowers and handmade leaves...even included a bit of wire for fun! And BAM! I have a little headband for Wendy's daughter.|
I am certainly glad that I have a friend that likes to get rid of her JUNK! :)
