    As always with these good ideas.
    I really enjoy your blog.
    It’s great as you explain things.

    I definitely like the idea of having something custom made, especially if you are recreating something that was a little pricier to begin with. The cheapo skirt may not be the best option. I keep saying I’m going to take my old worn out jeans and at least make them into something else, but presumably that is also something a professional would be willing to do as well.

    On the subject of remaking clothes, I use the book “Patterns from Finished Clothes: Re-Creating the Clothes You Love” by Tracy Doyle. It has very practical pattern making advice.

    Ok, I can’t find it for the life of me, but I swear you profiled software/hardward to make the Cricut more flexible by using fonts/images from a PC…..would you please be able to tell me which post I would find this in? Thanks!

    Kerry – I’m pretty sure it wasn’t me since I’m not entire sure what a Cricut is. Sorry! Best of luck tracking it down. (Indeed, I keep this here website as a way of organizing all those things I think I might want to find later on.)
