Are you INstyle?

Pin It

According to InStyle Magazine this month, houndstooth is back with a vengeance, and since I love to jump on seasonal trends for cheap, this skirt was mine at hello! The skirt was 85 cents at a local thrift store and the rest of my supplies were on hand. Using a few easy-sew, cheat-sew and no-sew methods, I created eight projects out of this single skirt.  From fixing broken candles to updating a vintage purse to creating new fall accessories - I did it all with one 85 cent skirt!

from top left clockwise:
dickie; purse clasp; Halloween decor; broken candle fix; eyeglass case; pleated clutch with wriststrap and collection including 1. clutch, 2. eyeglass case, 3. dickie, 4. rosette, 5. broken candle.

Now I KNOW you want to know how to make these super easy projects!  
Can you guess which ones are no-sew? 

Come back tomorrow for more details, how-tos and tutorials!

Have you added your latest project to the POOL yet!

I am impressed! And I can not get over the amazing deals you find at your local thrift store - mine are nowhere near that good.

I like mixing bright colors with houndstooth. Love your creative ideas with the houndstooth.

Such lovely ideas! Houndstooth is such a beautiful print, too.

Yes, I must confess, I have cheated. I'm not as creative in recycling into something else, but I saw the nicest quilted material in pinks, greens, yellows, and I used it as a topper for a daybed. I just hemmed the top and bottom and added a ruffle for the front edge. I would never have made such little squares, but it looked like a handmade quilt. I also bought quilted Christmas fabric added binding and made six placemats. It's not really cheating, it is using a wonderful fabric someone thought of to help us.
