Warning - a lot of photos and text!
Few days ago we visited the Bicycle Cinema in my town and we had a little picnic and a grill. The cinema was in Park Zielona ('Green Park') so after the film finished we went to our lovely lake in the middle of the night.. After some funny stories at the lake we went home few kilometres a little bit drunk and extremely exhausted. I was home about 3a.m. and of course I went to bed. I woke up the next day and took a peek into my bag.. I was really surprised to see bacon in there (without any paper around it!). Everything smelled like old bacon and was covered in it! Everything had to go the washing.. and of course I didn't have any big emergency wallets, tissue holders etc. so I had to sew everything yesterday!!
Well it was a good reason to make a new wallet and a great necessity really..
I need big wallets so I can put everything there.. seriously everything;p
I love making wallets like this one, a lot of work but it's quite simple :)
And ohh it has so so soooo many pockets!
Isn't this button a perfect one? I received it from lovely Michelle (thank you again!)
6 card slots.. but I really have about 12 cards there;p As you know I also had to sew a new tissue holder.. I decided to make a really nice one this time, not a super quick one. And I really like how it came out with the red checked edges! :)
Ok enough about the silly Bacon Story.. now something different - really different!
About a year ago I got a beautiful dress from my cousin, but it didn't really fit me - the upper part was way too big.. And because of that I wore it only three times.. Eventually I decided to make a mini skirt from it! My first mini skirt ever.. and without a pattern!
If you want to see how the original dress looked like you can see it for example here.
I'm really shocked that it came out quite well!! As you know I don't sew clothes and I don't really have a clue how to make them.. but one of my summer holiday goals is to sew a dress or something.. I also sewed a belt for it.. A very simple one :)
I know this skirt is really short but when it was a dress it was ever shorter!
Well, what do you think about it?? I would love to hear your opinion about this skirt!
I hope you had a wonderful weekend! Mine was pretty busy! But I loved it!
Have a wonderful week!
