I've been going to Target every day this week watching for the toys to go on super clearance. Most of the Thomas train things are already 50% off--so my little boys birthday is all bought and his birthday isn't until the end of the year!
I start my shopping trips a the front section--the dollar bins. Usually I find a toy or two to entertain my munchkins until we get to the toy section. This time I found these towels and knew exactly what I wanted to do with them...
Aren't they cute? I love how the heart towels have a fun trim on the bottom. I bought three packs on the spot, which was a good thing. When I went back last night all the towels were gone.
By sewing the three heart towels together it made enough fabric for a gathered skirt. I cut the material in half to make two skirts. This one needed extra length so I added a pleated 4 inch strip with fuzzy white ric-rac trim.
This skirt is so fun with the extra ruffle on the bottom.
Because this half of the towel already had the fun trim I just finished off the top edge and added the elastic.
What do you think? Isn't it perfect for valentine's day?
3 towels cut in half= $1.87 per skirt.
Not too shabby!
