Straight "A"....or just plain AWESOME!

I've been BLESSED again, folks. Oh yes, I have! The ever fabulous Jessica, of Happy Together, has allowed me to do some pattern testing for her, and I am seriously IN.LOVE.WITH.HER! Yup....not afraid to show my crush on this awesome crafty mama! There is just so much to love about her projects.

This pattern for the "Straight A Skirt" makes my heart sing. It can be made entirely using an old t-shirt. For the past several years, I have been on a huge RE-PURPOSING kick. I find great joy in turning an old piece of clothing into a newly LOVED item of fashion, and this skirt is the perfect opportunity to do just that.
This lovely little tie-dyed number was picked up at our local Good-Will for $1.65. I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it, but as soon as I saw Jessica's pattern, I knew I had found my project, and it turned out just how I imagined it.

Sugar Bear it! It is funky, fun, and utterly fabulous! A one of a kind. is so comfy. How could it not be. A well loved.....softly worn.....t-shirt. sigh....perfect. I don't know exactly what it was about this skirt, but as soon as she had it on....she seemed to be filled with incredible amounts of silliness.

She couldn't hold still....she wanted to dance....and jump.......


and run and run and RUN!


and HOP...oh, we can't forget the hopping! ♥


We couldn't be more infatuated with this darling little skirt, and can't wait to make one or two....or possibly SIX more of these incredibly easy skirts.
You should head on over to Jessica's blog, and see how you might get your hands on this pattern yourself. It would be Silly not to! Even Sugar Bear thinks so!

Gotta easy as this pattern is......the skirts don't make themselves, and I've got big plans!
