Making pink lemonade

The Friday Photo
A weekly photo inspired by art, community and spontaneity

I have fallen in love with batik fabrics this spring. I love the
bright pink in this photo but the pattern I chose was an absolute disappointment.
I got a skirt out of my efforts but decided I would never be really happy with it.
Last night I cut the bottom part off, sewed a casing, and made it work for my granddaughter. Her favorite doll will also have a skirt to match soon. And remnants may appear on some of my upcycled goods.

And for me? I ordered the same fabric online and it arrived yesterday. I will
use a tried and true pattern for the second iteration of  a summer skirt.
