2018 Upcycling Challenge

Abbey Button

This challenge has been so fun!  I loved reading the suggestions that kicked off the challenge, I looked around my house thinking about things as just fabric, but ultimately I just had this vision of using vintage sheets!  So I hit the thrift stores, I didn’t find anything that was really speaking to me but then my daughter spotted this unicorn sheet and she HAD to have it!  Of course I couldn’t say no because, UNICORNS and RAINBOWS!   When I brought it home, this floral fabric designed by Bari J just jumped out and even though it seemed random, I just kept coming back to it.  As I started envisioning patterns I decided it would be really fun to line the skirt, especially because the sheet is thin.  I pulled out this pink stripe and it was just perfect!   When I started cutting the bodice, I wanted to applique a unicorn on it, but then I had this idea to reverse applique it and I’m so glad I took the time to figure out how to make it work! I just love the outcome and so does my daughter!
