High Low Skirt Refashion

High Low Skirt Refashion

Last year I picked up a skirt at a yard sale.  It was a beautiful color, flowy and belonged in a grandma’s closet.   It was the perfect diamond in the rough for me to try my hand at making a high low (or Hi-low or whatever you want to call it) skirt.   One of the problems that I have found with high low skirts that you buy in the stores is that the high part is REALLY high.  I wanted to wear the skirt comfortably and so I didn’t want the high part of the skirt to go above my knees.  Making one was a great option!

This was a pretty simple refashion.  Once it was done, I couldn’t help but walk around and feel the flowy-ness of the skirt.  I loved it! If you want to try this, you definitely need to keep an eye out for the right kind of fabric so that the new high low skirt will flow.

Travel Gifts for Boys

DIY Lego Travel Case
I have had a few years of experience under my belt making gifts for my girls. So on our last road trip to Disneyland I whipped up several travel gifts for my girls. The ideas just came flying in. Then my thoughts turned to my little buddy and travel gifts for little boys were harder to think up.  I looked around and found two ideas that I thought my son would like and keep him occupied on the drive.
