Last night, hubby went out to play poker with friends and I blissfully sat and sewed, with my newest addition to our coffee table: hurricane vases! These were the ones we had everywhere at our wedding, but they've been used for several other weddings since then. It was lovely to reclaim them for our little home. Isn't everything better by candlelight?
And, by following these instructions to the letter, and using $4 worth of elastic and black jersey material, I was able to turn those pants into ....
... maternity pants for work! This week, I was meant to be shopping to get some new pants for work, but then I saw these tutorials online and thought I'd give it a go. For $6, I was soooo chuffed. Although they're a little baggy, I figure that will be a good thing heading into my third trimester.
I was so pleased with the results that I'm currently halfway through doing the same thing to a pair of jeans that had popped their button anyway. I'm thinking it'll be great on some skirts as well when the weather warms up. I just love making the most of things that others would throw away!
