$1.50

I have come to Florida to spend Mothers Day with my Mom. So far it has been non-stop creativity, wine sipping, thrift store shopping, laughing, moonlight beach walking and memory making! Our friend Jody helped us dye wool fabrics in her crockpot. CraftStylish inspired us to make these skirts from t-shirts, which by the way, we paid 25 cents each, so do the math...CUTE SKIRT 50 CENTS!! Today we are altering fabric by discharging it with dishwasher gel. And the little sundress is my ONE DOLLAR splurge at the local thrift store.
