Dyeing Debacle of 2015
I got it in to my head the other day that I would love a long circle skirt. I blame YouTube for their "recommended" section that often lures me in to wasting hours on videos that I didn't plan to watch. It's shameful how much time I lose on that site....
Anyway, there was a lady that demonstrated how to turn a king-size sheet in to a "maxi" circle skirt. I will not link to the video because it was mostly awful and I didn't use any of her "instructions," but I mention it because it reminded me that I have a pile of flat sheets sitting around and being useless.
Do you use flat sheets in your home? We don't. Both of the males in my house seem to have internal furnaces that run hot at night, and they can barely stand the lightweight comforters that I force upon them. Thus, every time I buy new sheets the flat sheet gets tossed in a pile while I decide whether to make it in to a second fitted sheet (I'm still mulling it over..). Anywho, I thought of my "stash" of sheets when I watched the video and realized that I needed to make a circle skirt immediately.
Unfortunately, all of my flat sheets are this tan/beige/neutral color, and that is NOT my style at all.
How about this one:
