I think I've found a new crafting idol. Kelly from Sewing in No Man's Land is absolutely fantastic!!! Chances are, if you're bothering to read my lil' blog you've already heard of her...if you haven't then get on over there! Seriously, it is THAT fantastic.
Especially because she does everything on very limited resources - not doesnt-have-money-to-buy-designer-fabric, but she lives in a very remote place (East Timor - yeah, I had to look it up on a map too) and simply cannot run to the store and buy what she wants! She took 15 yards of fabric with her when they moved there - amazing!
Anyways, when I saw this finale for Project Run & Play, I fell head-over-heels in L.O.V.E.
Sadly, I don't have any turquoise in my stash. Hardly any vibrant colors like this at all...but when I went thrifting the other day there was some pea/avocado/lime-ish green fabric that practically had a halo glow and hallelujah chorus surrounding it on the rack. AND, it pretty much matches this beautiful floral cotton I bought last year at Joann's and have done nothing with.
So, for less than $5, I give you my 'knockoff' of the Petite Chouette jacket:
