My awesome friend, Melinda (who is blogging now!!. Yes, I know. It only took me three years of constant harping!) is celebrating her birthday today. I really didn't want to just buy her a gift. I needed it to be something more.
Enter the love of my life, Orla Kiely.
At Target last week, I found a 50% off tablecloth. I should have bought more of them. I'm thinking I might want a skirt.
I used the free Buttercup Bag Pattern from Made by Rae. Totally simple! Totally perfect!
I'm told that Melinda immediately ran out and bought a new outfit to match. (What a way to make my head grow bigger! I was secretly hoping she'd hate it so that I could keep it for myself and go buy her a generic gift. Darnit!)
That is AWESOME!
I'm so jealous. I saw those handbags but they still looked like too much to this barely-sewing woman. I'm impressed with what you can whip up. And the fabric is groovy. I would get an outfit to match too.
Very, very, VERY cute!
And have you seen that tute for a skirt out of a table cloth???
Char! Link me up!
very cute! definitely love that fabric choice :)
My birthday is in December. I'm just say'en....
