Some very girly sewing

I don't normally get to do girly girly sewing. Not in a house full of boys. But at work everyone dresses in costume in the last couple of days before Christmas. It is the busiest time of the year and by the 23rd all are tired. So I decided to be the fairy on the Christmas tree. I bought a remnant satin for only $4 from Fabric Vision. Then a little bit of cheap tulle and some glitter tulle on top. Voila a Fairy skirt. Only 1.5 hours to whip it up (gathering the tulle was the longest part).

To go with it I have a string of Xmas lights but I have to wear my steel caps and hi viz vest. Will post a photo when it happens. Aaron says he is going to borrow the skirt to hand out goodies for at his work. I will have to get a photo of that too.

Linking to these places and finish it up friday.


  1. How lovely! Pink and glitter, what could be better?!

  2. What fun - I'm sure you will make a beautiful fairy, especially on hi viz vest and boots! Be sure to post o photo,l and one of hubby too when he borrows your fairy skirt.

  3. Can't wait to see a picture of that!

  4. Must be lovely sewing something different for a change!
