Unlikely Source

While digging through the 25 cent box at Helping Hands, I found a sage green sheet with a white leaf print. I thought it would make a lovely summer dress. The problem:

ink stains

Ink Stains

So I dug a little deeper and found the fitted sheet that matched. It too was stained.

Who goes to bed with a sharpie?

At 25 cents each I splurged and bought both sheets knowing I would be able to cut around the stains to make a


summery frock

with a matching padded hangerimg_6262

The pattern and belt were also thrift store finds. Whole outfit less than $5.

There is still quite a bit of fabric left. In the future you may see another project from the same sheet.
